Corsair TX850 for GTX 680 SLI and 3570k CPU enough?

Is a Corsair TX850 sufficient for a SLI set up for two EVGA GTX 680 FTW and a 3570k cpu OC'ed to about 4.5?
I'm also running a P8Z77-V Pro motherboard and Intel 520 240GB SSD if it is relevant to my question.

    considering you won't break 500w in a stress test, you have plenty of power

    Mainboard

    MSI Big Bang XPower X58

    Processor

    Core i7 965 Extreme @ 3750 MHz

    Memory

    6144 MB (3x 2048 MB) DDR3 Corsair @ 1500 MHz

    Graphics Card

    GeForce GTX 680 (NVIDIA reference)
    GeForce GTX 680 (ASUS)

    Measured power consumption two cards in SLI

    System in IDLE = 155W
    System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 473W
    Difference (GPU load) = 318W
    Add average IDLE wattage ~20W
    Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 338 Watts
