850W is plenty enough.

times two at stock

add maybe 50-75 watts for each card, hel ladd 100 watts for each card mad oc's wise(but i dont think youll get there not without pushing mad voltages)

and even a decent 600 will do.(that gives 600 on the 12v)

Good choice of cards. The 650 should be enough, but I might consider the 750 for extra leeway for upgrading your gpus later. For cpu, the 930 is a good choice from Intel, while the 1055 is good for AMD. It really depends on what you'll be doing. If you get the 965 from AMD now you can move up to the 1055 later.
