I have a corsiar 650tx is that enough for a xfire 6850?

I think it should be, but I would get a 750w just to be sure.

I think you'd be ok though.

Not so sure how well they OC (should be good considering they are new cards, possibly 10% OC, don't quote me on it).

As for how to do it, download THIS and you'll be good to go.

MSI Afterburner is the easiest way to OC your cards.

Afterburner as provided by covert cover. I think the latest beta adds voltage support.

You wont need much of an over clock given you have too. They will perform really well. Aim for quiet instead.
