This says 75W, but you PSU should be fine for it, you'll have up to 312 watts available.

The R7-240 is a lower end card, so yes it should be stable. As I said the card needs 75W, you PSU has 312W @ 12V.

A good 700W PSU would have 52A @ 12V, why is yours only 26A?

Amp X Volt=Watts.

isnt the 700 watts divided to various volts like 12v, 5v, 3.3v composed of amps. my only doubt is that my psu is a generic one.

i think i should upgrade my psu later the corsair vs450 can reach my budget. is it a good one

Yes, the label on the PSU should tell what is available for each voltage, however the 12V will have the most.
I agree on getting a good Corsair and it should run your system well.
