800 Watt enough for 2 GTX 470's?

That's my PSU, I really don't want to have to buy a new one at this time, as I'm pouring a lot as it is into my upgrade. I have the chance to get a matching GTX 470 (vanilla EVGA) so I'm wondering if my 800 Watt PSU is enough.

It's going to run an i5 2500k/Asus P67/4 HD's/2 Optical/X-Fi/TV Tuner/Corsair H80/7 fans and like 6 USB devices. Think that will cut it?

Depend on how good your psu is. Some no name crappy psu have a spec of 600 w and in reality it can only pull 300 w top, while good psu like seasonic x can pull 900 w on their 750 w rated psu

Well this ABS Tagen PSU I bought back in 2008 was one of the most expensive money could buy at the time. I just wanted to be sure, as I really didn't feel like blowing the PSU by overloading it. Thanks guys! As I always I <3 OCN. Only place I can get real answers.

I would say you should be good. At the very worst case senario you can run your GPU's at stock clocks. I have an 850w and I OC both my 470's @ 775 @ 1.075mv with my CPU OC'ed to 4.8GhZ.
