But still consider upgrading in future.
the thing is that im not from usa, im from argentina, and here costs the doble than in ur country, the best option i have, on price and performance is the fatal1ty 750w, others costs more

ocz isn't the greatest but it's definitely better than what you've got...72A is a good thing...ocz now owns pc power and cooling, which is what mine is, but i got mine when they were still the company they were back then...70A on one rail and I've never had issues with it...

i think the 750 fatal1ty will be just fine, if you can go for a 650W or 550W or even 500W of a higher quality you'll be fine...just find something decent with a 50A rail and you're set...no need for 750

that said, that is a personal recommendation...you can do it on 44A, but you might suffer a psu failure later on...

You do know that 40A on the 12V rail is 480W?

44A is more than enough for a 570, more than enough for a 580.

44A is more than enough for a 570, more than enough for a 580.
amperage and wattage don't have to normally coincide...but sure 480 works too...and it all depends on what he's doing and for how long. I'd never want to load up a 570 on 38A or even 40...because yes it is enough to start with, but after some time the psu will just not be happy with that...electronic parts age, and as they age they require more energy to keep up the same amount of work as before...

what victorofhavoc said, he's right, but even if i have my 700w vitsuba its enough for this, in some years ( idk maybe 1, 2 or 3 or even more, the psu will rip )
even if i get a fatal1ty 750w, it will be better, for the amp and wattage...
the thing is that, what i really want to know if that my vga was bad or my psu is not enough to handle full load of it

pd: as i said b4, i had issues with my vga, so i deliver it for warranty, now im w8ting for them to tell me what's wrong... if the vga is ok, i will change my psu, if not, maybe i change it, maybe not, it depends on the future
