My System Specs

Default GTX 680 SLI and the HX850

Given the my system specs and the estimated psu calculation would my 3 year old HX850 still be good enough to power an extra GTX 680 on top of everything else I have in my rig. I know the 680 is quite efficient and lots others say even a good 750 watt PSU is good enough for SLIed 680's but given all the hard drives, fans, and the highly overclocked 920 I own would my 3 year old HX850 still be viable?

Processor: Intel Core i7 920 D0 @ 4.01ghz
