Hey guys,

I am wondering how much power does my system currently consumes:
i5 3570K
Noctua NH-D14
ASUS P8Z77-V Pro
Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB 2X4GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 1.5V CL8 Dual Channel
ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II Top 1137MHZ 2GB 6.0GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card
Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB 64MB Cache 7200RPM 3.5IN
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB
Samsung 840 pro 256GB
LG CH12LS28 12X Blu-Ray Reader & Lightscribe DVD Writer Combo Drive
ASUS Xonar Essence ST
Coolermaster HAF X EATX Tower Case

I am currently using Antec High Current Pro 850W 24PIN ATX12V Active PFC 80 Plus Gold SLI Modular Power Supply. Do I need to upgrade if I am planning to get a better motherboard, another GTX670, and another HDD? How much power does a GTX600s consume?

Thank you guys!

during gaming the following system doesn't even break 325w
CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz
Motherboard: EVGA X79 SLI
Chipset Drivers: Intel 9.​2.​3.​1022
Power Supply: Antec True Power Quattro 1200
Hard Disk: Samsung 470 (256GB)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1867 4 x 4GB (8-10-9-26)

you can add a second GTX 670 and HDD and still be at 50% of your PSU's power
