Default Corsair HX650W Question

So I got one of these recently for my new build


http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...r&promoid=1015

I've got a
Asus Crosshair IV, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (which i plan on OCing), h50 cooler, 4gb ram, 60gb ssd, 1tb WD black and a haf 922 case

Currently my GPU is a GTX260 (which i plan to switch when I get some more money)

Was wondering if the PSU has enough power to sustain say a:

Crossfire 5850 or Crossfire 5870 setup or possibly a single 68XX (but doubt any info on the 6 series is out yet)

since it can do a lot on the 12v, i think you will be fine with either 5850/5870.

between 300 and 400 watts tops for the 5870's when loaded(furmark or games)

200-300 spare watts for teh system should be ok, depending on the overclock. monster clocks? no. decent clocks? yay.

For a hypothetical CrossfireX 5870 system, its cutting it a wee bit close for my personal tastes, but yes, its enough.
