Windows 7: Can I run GTX 560 with this PSU

Can I run GTX 560 with this PSU

Hey guys,

I'm new here. Can someone tell me if an OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W PSU with dual 25A +12v rails can run the GTX 560 (just one of them, non-overclocked)? I know it has the physical requirements (2 6-pin PCI-E supplement connectors), but does it have the wattage and amperage? Also, according to PSU specs, it has 2 +12v rails with 25A each. According to EVGA, this card needs 24A. Do both rails share power? Because if not, a card that supposedly draws 24A on a 25A rail is cutting it really close...

Lastly, do I have much headroom for overclocking if I do decide to overclock it (assuming it works)?

Here are the rest of my specs:

Intel Core i7 950 (4C8T, 3.06Ghz, 8MB Cache, 4.8GT\s Intel QPI)
Sabertooth X58 MoBo (X58 Northbridge, ICH10R Southbridge)
CM RC430 Case (5 x 120mm 78 CFM fans)
6GB RAM (Triple-Channel DDR3, 1600Mhz, Latency 9-9-9-24)
1 x WD Caviar Black 1TB HD (7200RPM, SATAII)
1 x Crappy old generic SATA DVD drive

are yo sure your looking at the 12v rail and not the 3.5v and 5v rails? as they are typically 24/25amp

That card runs a max of 150 watts... 450 watt power supply is the minimum size......So yes you can....

@ badger906: Funny enough, the +3.3v and +5v rail run at 25A as well. On my power supply's sticker (the sticker with the table that has the amperage and wattage on each rail), it's literally 25A pretty much across the board.

@ Ivan the SoSo: Thanks, sounds good .

Both of you, thanks for replying quickly . Do you think it'd be safe for my PSU if I overclocked the video card?
