We need to know the brand and model to make an informed decision on it..theoretically 650W PSU powers 2x 5770 easily..but not if it's a Raidmax or a hunk or junk.

Not being 80 plus only means that it will be less efficient, so instead of drawing lets say 660w it might draw 680w under full load.

That being said many PSU's do not deliver the rated wattage or amps.

Edit: PSU is no name piece of junk? Do not CF.

If you're sure it's non-brand piece of crap then you need to replace it..connecting expensive components to it is not a good idea.

That's an automatic NO right there.

And you went super overkill with your sig rig. Even with 3 Radeon 5770s, that AX1200 is super overkill.
