Default Power supply is this enough

Hi all,
Here is a list of the rig I am making :-
Rampage III black edition, i7 990x chipset, kingston hyperx t1 3x 4gig ram modules, ocz 120gig ssd, wd caviar black 1tb hdd, 2x asus gtx590, koolance rp-1000bk reservoir & pump, antec 1200 v3 case, 7x case fans, 2x radiator fans, asus bw-12b1lt blu-ray & drw-24b1lt dvd rom drives.
My question is in all of your opinions is my choice of antec 1200 high current pro going to be an adequate power supply for this system?
Thanks for any assistance in advance.

According to guru3d.com, 590's in SLI requires about 1000w for an average system. That power supply should be just fine.

With a high-end System like that don't forget to allow for a second Graphics Card. Buy a quality Power Supply, it is not a place to save a buck. Be certain it has enough plugs and it is split (sized-per-cables) to suit your needs.
