I had earlier discussed with other forum...some say....its ok....some say....u should put atleast 1500W+..for all that stuff to be running
jesus christ I didn't even see the ares listed haha one monster of a card :D

I've googled a bit and came across this benching: Asus Ares Power Consumption and Thermals | bit-tech.net this should help you

edit: the test-setup included a 1000W PSU, and seemed more than sufficient for one of those monsters. So I believe you'll be fine with a 1200W
