A stock GTX 480 draws 250W at max according to the Nvidia website:

Then there's the CPU,which is 130W at stock, so there's 1130W not counting overclocks and other hardware.

To be honest, I'm uncertain if even 1500W would be safe for that kind of hardware unless it was a really, really good 1500W power supply. I would say otherwise if it weren't for such a high overclock on your CPU and four overclocked, power-hungry GPUs. Of course, this is from someone who has never overclocked anything before. I'm just going by manufacturer information.

i7 2600k | 8GB RAM | eVGA GTX 460 1GB | 640GB HDD | Corsair HX1000 | CM690 II Adv. | Windows 7 64-bit
