Hi I am building my first Rig, doing quite a bit of research to make sure that everything is going to work for now and some time to come in the future without being too excessive. For a general look on things, you could say I'd rather not have to extensively upgrade this rig for 5 years and would like to game, stream, video edit and do other general day to day things (watch videos & movies).

So my main question as stated in title is, will an 850W power supply be good enough to avoid any foreseeable issues in the next 5 years? From what I understand 850W+ for most builds is considered overkill given a one good GPU set up. Mine is using a 2-Way SLI 970 set up and so im curious to know from some experienced minds; if I wanted to push this thing to it's max with all the components listed in the link would the power supply be able to sustain it all. Would there be head room, would it just be enough? If it's too much in your opinion what would you recommend?
