Nothing will be exact (including this) but this I found has worked fair:

oh i see, but do you think 700W will be enuff to run 2x 5870 on xfire also going to put water cooling for the cpu in the future though. so yeah just wondering if its enough or not.

I have no idea what kind of power your water cooling set up will draw...don't know much about watercooling. Maybe someone will chime in.

I got Two XFX 5870 xxx-edition in crossfire right now and watercooling with a 750w Corsair PSU. So i think u should be alright. Only current draw from watercooling is the electric pump (which hardy uses any power). I forgot watercooling requires more fans in addition to case fans...even with 6 fans my psu still holding up..
I also got 5 hard drives lol. dont have any power issues at the moment.
But i was actually wondering if I would be alright with my 750w if i added a 9800gt for physx?
