Is 850w enough for these parts?

Asrock Z97 Extreme4
Intel i7 4790K (when released) w/ Hyper 212 Evo
2x Sapphire R9 290 Vapor-x Crossfire
1 3 TB HDD
1 240 GB SDD


Is 850w pushing it or is it more than enough?

The GPUs will top out at 550w and the i7 is only a 70ish-w part (and it won't be using that much since 70w includes the HD4600), should be fine.

Just to clarify the GPUs top at 550w for both right? Anything else that can be a power hog other than the GPU and CPU?

If you have a lot of high speed fans or a lot of hard drives, that'll use a lot of power. Outside of that, really the GPU is the main consumer of power, followed by the CPU (unless you have one of AMD's stupid 220W CPUs).
