I am thinking that this will allow full power out of the steppers. Am I right?

The steppers I have are rated at 2amp each. And the drivers are only rated at 2.5 amps. So parallel feed I would be getting 1.25 amp to each motor, roughly 62% of the rated torque.

As I have not assembled my machine is having two 76oz motors at full rating on each axis overkill?
