What do you say? Am I safe?
Note: I am actually considering on upgrading to two GTX 680/780s (whatever they decide to call them) when they are released. I am trying to get an idea if my power supply is up to the job by seeing if it can handle my 3930K and two GTX 580s since they probably have similar power consumption.
As long as you aren't pushing overclocking too far you should be fine.
