My System Specs

Default Would AX 850 be good enough for this set up?

Hi guys,

Trying to get some 580's in SLI as the prices have really come down. I have a heavily clocked 2600K for benches otherwise I run it at 4.5ghz at 1.32v


I have 9 120mm fans
1 240 mm case fan

1x 150GIG veloci raptor drive
1x 500gb sata 2 wd black drive
ASUS P8z68-v PRO board


and 2 x 580's?


Would it be good enough? I checked the PSU estimator and its recommending 961 watt psu. as I selected 20 percent for capacitor aging.
