OCZ just like coolermaster has SOME good units and some mediocre and some terrible, you just have to know which it is. I would look it up before retiring it as it may turn out to be a very good unit.
This being my point, don't just assume 1 brand is awesome as with everything, things change, standards slip or flaws enter designs.

This is no more true than with brands that use OEM's for the base unit.(Like all the mentioned above)

I think it will be enough, but I would get a larger PSU when funds permit for long term use (eventually that high of a load will catch up with the PSU). I wouldn't run out the door and buy, but keep an eye out over the next year for a great sale and upgrade then.

750W should be enough. I have same PSU, runs a 3570k and a 780 lightning. 7970 uses like 200W each? 400+65 you still have lots of head room
