Default HX650 ok to use for GTX 285's in SLI?

Good day Folks..I am new to the forums and glad to be here. Got my new rig running recently..

Phenom II X4 955 BE OC'ed to 3.5 GHZ (For now)
4 GB DDR3 G.Skilll Ripjaw 1600 Mhz
Asus M4N98TD EVO MB
2 SSD's drives
1 Optical drive
EVGA GTX 285
Corsair HX650 Modular PSU

Was wondering if I could throw in another GTX 285.....I have read in some reviews that this PSU would max out at like 735 watts or so...or would that be pushing things too far? What do you guys think or is there anyone here running this PSU with 2 GTX 285's? I have a GTX 260 sitting around...maybe get another one of those instead and just do 260 SLI?
