GTX 260 Core 216 and 12V Rails

Hello all. I recently received an EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 in an RMA exchange for a Radeon 5750 that was giving me the vertical line crash. My power supply has two 12V rails rated at 17a and 18a. One of these rails is already hooked up to a 12V cooling fan. The fan has a wire going to the fan and a 4-pin plug split off from that wire.

The GTX specs say it requires a 500 W PSU with 40a in the 12V rails. So will I have enough juice for this card? Will it be ok for the card's 4-pin to 6-pin dongle to hook into the fan's split plug? Here are my system specs:

Athlon II X4 620 Quad Core
500 GB SATA 7200 RPM Hard Drive
600 Watt Cyberpower PSU
4 GB DDR3 PC1333 RAM
MSI AMD 770-C45 AM3 Motherboard

Thank you for your help.

As that reads, the ATi card died and the OP was given a 260 as a replacement.

@OP, I don't recognise the brand of PSU so can't comment on it's quality.
