ohohoho... THINK SO.. =.=

Well I don't have access to all of that equipment to try for myself, so that's the best answer I can give. This will most likely be the same case for anyone else who responds. What more did you expect?

 

My Q6600 @ 3.2 with 4GB and 2x4850 pulls 364W DC max. So figure out the difference in power draw between a 285 and 4850 crossfire and you'll be in good shape. More than likely, it will work just fine. But "just fine" isn't always good enough for people who want to push their OC really hard, for example. You may find yourself a little closer to full power load than you like. That's my point. But only you can make that decision.

Mobo + CPU = 150W, Ram = 20W, HDD = 20W, Fans = 35W, GTX285 = 200W

 

Total approximately 425W

 

Nvidia recommend a 550W minimum power supply so you will be OK.

 

Cheers
