Hi all,

I'm planning on upgrading on my PC and would like to ask whether my current PSU can handle it. I'll go ahead and say that I think it can but I don't want to risk it considering the only experience I have is just building my current one about 2 months ago (To be honest I just said to myself "welp this PSU is nice and big, in terms of watts lol, it should do.")

Anyways this is my current PSU, currently it's powering a i3-2100, a 6870, a 3.5" 7200rpm hard drive, which is all seated onto a H61 1155 Micro-ATX motherboard.

So, I'm planning on getting another 6870 (Just putting this here to note that this would mean crossfire :p ), upgrading to an i5-3570k, (The last 2 items have a chance to be overclocked, although probably if I get custom cooling.) another 3.5" 7200rpm HDD (so two of these.), a 2.5" SSD, and lastly upgrading the motherboard to a fullsized ATX Z68 1155 Board.

My PSU does seem to have the connections for everything I believe, (Specifically I see just two more 6+2(?) connections for the other GPU) but to be honest I have no idea wtf it is when you guys talk about rails and stuff lol. So if I could get some people to answer whether or not I'll have to upgrade my PSU that would be awesome :D .
