Mine gets pretty close with a full load (OCCT psu test) on the CPU and all 4 GPUs.

Thanks for the reply, but after going through reviews, the one here in OCC (link: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/nvidia_asus_gtx560ti/16.htm) stated that under load, it consumes 382 watts. I'm not sure if this is the total consumption under the 15 mins span that they tested, or peak consumption.. sorry, forgot if watt is per hour or not, that was still way back in highschool..

 

That is most probably the average system power consumption, that means that system is pulling 382W off the wall (that is including the PSU inefficiency). A 850W PSU is (or should) be able to provide to your system at least 850W, that also means it will pull 850/efficiency from your wall.
