    In my 3,1 I have the following:

    4 Barracuda 3TB HDDs in the RAID array
    2 WD 640GB (AAKS) in the second optical bay using an OWC bracket
    1 ATi Radeon HD5870 in Slot 1
    1 Sonnet Tempo Pro in PCIE Slot 2 with two Intel SSDs attached

    Should I be concerned that I am coming close to what the computer can handle power-wise?

    I suspect not but I'm far from knowledgeable about this so would very much appreciate insights.

    Thank you in advance
    Philip

    The power supply should handle all of that fine.
