My System Specs

Default Is my Antec HCP 1200w enough?

I'm looking into upgrading my build with an SR-X motherboard and dual Xeons, but I'm not confident that just one 1200w PSU is going to cut it. If I look at running two PSU's in tandem for my upcoming build, Should they be the same make and model? Or is it even relevant? Also, on a slightly related note, I'm looking into mobilizing my R3BE, 990x, and ASUS Matrix GTX 580, any recommendations on bare minimum PSU for that type of build?

Thanks in advance

Well, I'm looking to install 2 GTX 590's on it, and possibly 2 690's or 4 680's in the future, I want to have a RAID array of 8 SSD's eventually as well.
