those cards are about 140 watts each - so 2 is 280

It might work in crossfire setup but it is recommended to have at least a quality 750W PSU

4670k Max TDP= 84W 
 
HD6950 Max TDP= 200W x2= 400W

 

extra 10%

 

Total= 532Watt

 

 

Something that is around 600W to should be a good setup.

I think that psu is 80+ silver if I know correctly, and I would expect it to handle about 10-20watts more than 600watts at its limit.  But it should be fine, it just means the fans might ramp up a bit. 

#Determine if advice was helpful
def was_helpful(advice):
  if advice >= 8:
    return True
  else:
    return False

helpfulness = input("Was I very helpful (1-10)?")
try:
  helpfulness = int(helpfulness)
  if helpfulness < 11 and helpfulness > 0:
    if was_helpful(helpfulness):
      print("Glad I was helpful")
    else:
      print("That's a shame")
  else:
    print("Provide a number between 1-10 next time...")
  except:
    "You did not provide a number"

It should be fine, but, are you overclocking the graphics cards or the CPU?
