Default Corsair 850TX

just wondering if the corsair 850TX can run this setup:
Core i7 920 OC'd to 3.6-3.8
6GB 1600 Corsair ram (possibly add another 6 later)
Up to 6 Seagate 1TB 7200.12 Hard drives
GTX 285 in SLI

Just wanna know if I should end up going with something bigger or not.

I don't see why not, that has a 70A 12v Rail.
That should suffice, but It would probably crap out for Tri-SLI.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.

You'll be fine....defintely go to Corsair 1kW if your entertaining Tri Sli...

I had 2 x 280's OC'd running on a PC P&C 750W for awhile..the 280's draw more power than the 285's....with that said it was on a E8400 at 4.1 Ghz as aposed to an I7.

Thanks, I haven't really even considered going for Tri SLI because when I actually need the extra power, something newer and alot better will be out :p
