Q6600 at stock will bottleneck it quite a bit though if its at 3+GHz then it won't be horrendous (game depending).

With my 4820K + 780 GHZ edition I peak around 400watt (draw at the wall) in BF4 and less in most other games - my concern is like stulid said those OCZ "Stealth" PSUs are known to degrade over time quite badly and it might be struggling to be stable over 450-500watt now.

also is the 290s better then the 780s? ah its this one :) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-114-GI

With a Q6600 any performance difference between those GPUs will be largely a moot point.

400w ono here too with the spec in sig, though mine is the rev 1 wf 780 that uses 1x 6 pin and 1x 8 pin pcie cable. Iirc the rev 2 uses dual 8 pin connectors.
