Default PSU Adequate for SLI/Surround setup?

So, I'm still rocking the setup in my sig and I'm still fairly content with my Q6600 until Bulldozer or Ivy Bridge comes out. Although a 2500k upgrade has crossed my mind. Until then, I've been debating whether or not I should upgrade to another monitor for a surround setup along with another GTX 570 as that would be necessary to do so.

I'm just unsure whether or not my PSU could even handle it. Thoughts?
