    Default Is 850W enough?

    I'm putting together an i5-6600K system tomorrow and I am wondering if my Corsair 850AX Gold rated PSU will be enough power for it.

    The mainboard is a Gigabyte G1 Z170X Gaming-6
    There is 32GB of RAM in it and a pair of Crucial 500GB M.2 drives in the two M.2 slots. I plan to run them in RAID.

    The power questions that I have are due to my two Gigabyte GTX-980 G1 Gaming GPUs. I want to run them in SLI.

    There will be no spinning drives and no DVD burner in this system.
    Usually, I would just try it to see if it works, but I'm getting arthritis in my hands and I only want to build this box one time if possible.

    Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me with this.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure about it.
    I do have a larger PSU here but I've earmarked it for an X99 build. (if I can ever afford the CPU for it)

    X99 is pricy, but awesome.

    If you overclock, just make sure you have a very good cooler/custom liquid.

    I've hit the limit on my h110i gt. Considering to go full liquid
