Default 1080ti sli power supply

Hello everyone. About to do 1080ti sli for two graphics cards. Im going to overclock my cpu which is a 6850k, and going to overclock my gpus when i water cool them. I used the evga power supply calculator, and they recommended 1200w. I just wanted to know does that sound about right?

With my Titan XPs OC'd and my 7700k at 5GHz most I pulled was 750 and that was peak maxing everything 100%. I'd say at most you need an 850 G3. But if you have the cash I got the 1200 P2 and it's a damn nice PSU.

The 850 G2 and G3 are the same price with Prime on Amazon. The G3 is also cheaper (119) than the G2 on Newegg. Last week the G3 850 was 90 bucks on Amazon lol.
