You've got a juicy set up there.
Having said all that you have a decent PSU there.
But again you just cant rely on the power ratings from some PSU manufactures cause they'll give you a 'peak' rating meaning that the 'RMS', or usable power rating, is actually a lot less than stated. Make sure they state 'true power' or 'continuous @ 50'C' or something like this.
I mean, lets say a PSU stated 600W and this was a 'peak' rating that they 'forgot' to state as well, the PSU will only give about 420W!! Not enough for a big, OC'd gaming rig.
