Hey everybody, 2nd post here on tomshardware, first post was responded to quickly and VERY helpful! awesome website.

anyways to the point, i have my system picked out and in the cart ready to buy. this will be my first build (although i have added/removed/upgraded parts from various other computers. This is my first from scratch.

Im worried about my power supply being too low. I'm no pro on these types of things and the worst thing that could happen is it total screws me over when i buy it.

Please give me some quick input on this power supply and weather it will run my rig easily with full load.
Im going to be playing games such as WoW, BF3, dead island, Swtor, diablo3, metro2033 And a bunch more games on the highest graphics the build can handle.

Thanks for any quick responses and any help whatsoever. it's greatly appriciated. as i said, this website is awesome :D 
Any different PSU suggestions are appriciated too. Quality over price obviously but id like to keep it cheaper if possible because my build is already over budget!

600W should handle 7850 Xfire so you're quite fine.
