850w will be fine, even when you dual gpu (estimated 672w inc 2x 770s).

Online psu calculator if you wanna punch in the parts http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Is this a gaming build?

4770k & 16gig are overkill for a gaming build, 4670k, 8gig ram and the difference applied to your gpu will be a better gaming bang for your buck.

Changed to a seasonic PSU too, they're basically the top manufacturer, companies like corsair don't make their own... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-oem-manufacturer,2913.html

I would recommended this power supply instead:

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-ax760

It's also a little cheaper.

Or if that's not enough, for around £140 you can grab this:
