so i google it for reviews and come up with these dismaying comments
Amazon.com: Chiefmax Dual Fan 650W Power Supply with SATA Connector: Electronics

it seems very hard to decipher from the PSU's specs whether or not it offers 2x 12v rails, though i feel i'll be OK as long as the amps are sufficient since i have a (2 x molex) -> (1 x 12v rail connector) converter cable that came with the card.
The requirements are always overinflated. The system you described will draw no more than 300W from the PSU at max load (i.e. when running Prime95 and Furmark at the same time).
Those two PSUs you linked to are giant pieces of junk that you should stay very far away from.

If you can find a cheap 30A PSU, get it.

Don't worry about the whole single or multi rail thing, it's irrelevant in your range of wattage.
You'll note that the requirement you posted for the video card says:
Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 28 Amps.
The Antec PSU I linked you to provides 30A at 12V. It'll be more than enough for your system.

But it's very poor to get 30A for 80$.

The one I linked to is not going to support an HD 6990, but it will do, for half the price.

I did not recommend any $80 PSU.
See my above comment about your 2nd line.

That's like buying a Ferrari for your dog.

Why buy a PSU from the best manufacturer on earth for an old peripheral GTX 8800 build?

You mean the PSU with 5 Newegg stars? Nonsense.

It will do fine with room to spare.

On the other hand, the Antec is more expensive and 400w for a 90nm GPU?

I don't recommend it.
