150-250 for pc with i5-i7

add another 300 watts for the cards

add another 200-250 watts if you are clocking the lot.

we're talking 12v rail watts. which that 750 has quite a few(in the link it says 744W) :)

good.

why not get a single card instead of 2 6850's? You can look at a 6950 or even 6970 in that price range. And you will draw less heat. I would recommend getting a single card, or better yet my favorite, get a 570!!!!
