GTX 760 SLI Power Supply

Here is my current build:

I'm looking to get another 760 card to run in SLI. I've seen a ton of websites, etc. that indicate you should be running a 750-800W PSU for GTX 760 in SLI but when I use power supply calculators they are below 600W even with my 4670K overclocked to 4.4GHz. Will my current PSU run both GTX 760 cards in SLI if I'm only overclocking the CPU or should I upgrade to the PSU below to be on the safe side?

I think it should be enough but always take more than the estimated wattage maybe like 20%

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cs650m This Corsair is better than the one you choosed(in the PCpartpickerlist) , 30 w more, 80+ Gold, Semi-Modular. And the one you choosed (newegg link) is also good. Safe side yeah, upgrade the PSU.

You do know your current MoBo can't SLI right? You can only run one PCI-E x16 graphics card

Anywho go for this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bbefx
