Default 600w enough?

Processor:
Phenom 9950 quad core
Memory:
4094MB RAM/2 sticks
Hard Drive:
160 GB
Video Card:
HD 4850
Motherboard:
MSI K9A2 CF-F AMD 790X CrossFire Chipset DDR2/1066 Dual 16X PCIE SATA RAID MB w/GbLAN,USB2.0,&7.1Audio
1 DVD rom/RW

Will my 600w PSU be enough to handle this efficiently ?

To power a system that requires more than 750w of power to run.

Can you say 2 x gtx295's with 2 water cooling loops.

Choosing a quality PSU is a lot better than a cheap one with overrated wattage.

The CoolerMaster ones tend not to be too bad though.
