Power Supply Question

I own a 750W Corsair PSU and was about to do some upgrades to an aging system for my brother. I was wondering if the PSU I have will be fine in an 6870 Crossfire setup with an OC'd FX-8350.

My main concern is the power draw from the OC'd 8350, I've heard they can be hogs in certain situations. I don't have much experience with AMD chips and the overhead needed in order to keep things in a safe range.

I'm assuming it'll be fine, but having another input would be appreciated.

Thanks again!

Appreciate the answer, I've done a few PSU Calculator Tests but I wasn't sure how accurate they were. Thanks for the reply!
