Based on your rating system I would say at a minimum, easily, perhaps even extremely easily. After the basic hardware, the most load I could see you adding will adding a lot of HDs or other gear pulling on the 12v rail.

The 8800gts has a minimum +12volt rail spec of 26amps. The HX520 has a review site tested and confirmed +12volt rail output spec of 40amps. I'd say very easily (won't even break a sweat).
