Default Corsair TX850 Capabilities

Hello everyone, I was just wondring if the Corsair TX850 would hold up to my new rig.

-Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Socket 1366 Intel X58
-Intel Core i7 920 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ
-Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D Matched Triple 6GB Kit (3x2GB) DDR3-1600MHz
-EVGA GeForce GTX 285
-Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
-LG GH22NS30 Black SATA DVD-Writer
-Thermalright Ultra120 eXtreme-1366 RT Premium Heatpipe Cooler
-Corsair TX Series CMPSU-850TX 850W

Alright so those are my parts that I will be buying soon and I would like to know if this PSU will be able to handle two GTX 285's later on?

My System Specs


Those specs will pull about 450W full load so there is plenty of room later for another 285.

My System Specs


As you can tell from my signature I'm running almost the exact same setup you're planning on building. Mines been up and running for ~ 30 days now and my 850TX's been happily providing all the power I need, at a remarkable low sound level.
