It might not have enough juice:
"A second card requires you to add another ~225 Watts. You need a 750+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking)."

I believe you'll be two PCI-E connectors short as well (each 570 has two 6-pin connectors I believe, the PSU only has two total).

You'll need to purchase a higher wattage PSU, and you may have to also purchase a couple 2-molex-to-PCI-E connectors

Yes, it does have enough power to run a GTX 570 setup.. and no, it does not have enough PCIe connectors to feed both cards, you'll need two Molex -> PCIe adapters.

Yes they are safe.

Reason I ask is because of this

You'll need a total of four 6-pin PCIe PEG power connectors headed from your power supply. Purchase a good one, and with so much power under the hood, don't mess around with the Molex to PCIe 6-pin power converter cables okay? Okay let's head on over to the testing zone...

Hahaha.. where are you buying from and what is your budget?.. link the shop/s in question:)

Also, almost all PSUs are made in China and the rest in Taiwan;)
