well, give 200 watts for cpu board...add another 25 for fans...another 25 for drives and then add 250-300 for video cards. since that unit puts out quite the numbers on the necessary 12v rail? looking good.

You're more than fine with that unit. I've got a lot more connected than you do on an HX650. Same GFX cards as well.

I ran almost the exact same setup just AMD Phenom II 965 with a nf980a board for SLI. My tx650 ran it find but got uncomfortably hot. So I swapped out to the xfx 750w(seasonic oem) for some efficiency since I don't like heat.

It will work find but if your OC'd dual gpu folding and cpu folding expect a 650watt to blow hot air like a space heater.

it will power your system no problem, but you may want a little more headroom just in case.
