That's what the 5870x2 will use. Each 5870 will use 200w at the very max.

Easily enough is correct. Each 5870 draws a max of 188 Watts.

That's system power consumption.

The 5870 actually uses up to about 160W of power by itself: DirectX 11 in the Open: ATI Radeon HD 5870 Review (page 7) - X-bit labs

And that's under FurMark, so normal power consumption while gaming or folding will be lower.
