PSU requirements for 8800GTS 640MB

Anyone know wether my PSU (Hiper Type R 580W) will be sufficient for the 640 MB version of the 8800GTS?

Allegedly, the PSU has 2x12v rails, rated at 20amps and 18amps.
The GPU needs a PSU capable of delivering 26amps on the 12v rails.

Any ideas?

You've got plenty of power. I'm running an E6600 OC @3.6GHz, Asus P5B, 2 GB DDR2 1066, Raptory X, Audigy 2ZS and 7800 GTX all that on 480Watts. My PSU only has 32 amps total, when yours has 38 amps. You could run for sure one 8800 GTX and most likely two. "You enough power and then some."
