If it was me then I'd buy a new one just to be safe but that's just me.

If you only have one video card 850 watts is way overkill

Even with two video cards its overkill

I wouldn't worry about replacing the PSU unless it was really abused like 24/7 under heavy loads. It's not like its a cheap unit. If your not experiencing any issues I say your fine. I still use my HX1000 lol

A lot of people pushed them harder than I have and many wired them incorrectly. It's under warranty anyway lol.
