I would never trust a 620W with 2 video cards. I doubt it would have enough Amps on the 12V rail to run them. I remember having a 750W that couldn't handle my 2 560ti's although it was an old PSU.

what are the system specs?
(if your overclocking an AMD CPU @120 watts you are cutting it close.)
though chances are that 620w is do the job with TWO 24 amp rails . . .

Possible, but overclocking might be out of the question. I've seen i5 2400 + dual GTX560's run on a GS600.

I'd recommend a Corsair TX650v2 or OCZ Modextreme 700W. Both cost around $90.

If buying new you'll want to get a psu with the proper amount of connectors
If you already have it, it has enough power
For a single card system EVGA reccomends;
Requirements
Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 24 Amps.)
Two available 6-pin PCI-E power dongles

There's no OCP on an M12II's "dual" rail's, it's a single rail psu with 2 times as much 12v power as is reccomended for a system with a single card, that reccomendation isn't doubled for dual card's
