850W enough to power this?

Okay, I'll soon be buying the following:
-- 2x Gigabyte 7970 3GB Overclocked @ 1000MHz each
-- Intel i5-3570k
-- Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD
-- Caviar Black WD 1TB 7200rpm Hard Drive
-- Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
-- ASUS Xonar DGX
-- Pioneer DVR-220LBKS Black 24xDVDRW OEM

That's what it will be powering. Don't think I need to include the motherboard or anything else. Will it be able to handle it? Should I go to a 900W or 1050W PSU?

More about 850w power this
  1. You only need a recommended 800w power supply for 2 x HD 7970s so an 850w unit will be fine.

    Make sure to get a good unit. Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec and the higher end Rosewill units.
  2. Thanks for that. I'm getting a Corsair TX 850W.
  3. I would stay away from those right now unless you know it's an 850TX V2. This holds true for the whole TX line.

  4. An 850w PSU is overkill for that.
    I run that and a 4.6GHz OC with a 650W, but i guess it depends on the PSU?

    That XFX is excellent.

    You are running 2 x HD 7970s and an overclocked CPU on 650 watts? You are cutting it close and likely are stressing that PSU to the dangerous limit.

    Yeah I know Furmark. But still too close for comfort.

    lol I missed the second HD7970. Didnt see he said XFire
  7. I'd get this one.

    50Watts more for $5 less...plus it's made by Delta!
  8. But it's not modular! D:
  9. Neither is the 850TX.

    If you know how to do cable management, you won't care about it being modular. There's practically no difference, except for marketing purposes.... :p
  11. There is an 850TX-M but it's a pretty low rated unit by Corsair standards and is also being replaced by an Chicony Power Technology made unit.

    The CWT made 850TX-M. The newer Chicony Power Technology models are too new to have reviews.

  12. I'd only go with the Seasonic or Delta models.....

    I disagree. I have had both and will never buy another non modular unit again. This 750TX is a huge pain in the ass to manage.

    Guess you're not OCD enough like Moto and Lutfj. :P
