No, you need to upgrade your PSU. If the card manufacturer tells you that you need 26 amps, that is what you need. Your power supply isn't going to provide more power just because you want it to.

Look for these PSU:

Corsair 400CX:

This will easily handle that card.I have this PSU.
Very quiet under load.

Corsair 550VX:

This will handle most of single GPU.So if you plan to upgrade your rig anytime, you don't need to buy a new PSU.
Has 5 year warranty.

Seasonic S12II 380W:

Very nice unit.

All of these will run your card without breaking a sweat.

Depending on the rest of your computer you probably do not need a new PSU. 20 amps on the 12v rail is 240W, but of course that's probably peak and not sustained. Even so, a 5670 is pretty miserly and will generally use well less than it's max 75W (6.25A on the 12V) so long as you're not running furmark :D . You should read this article on x-bit

Anyway, it is a good idea to have a decent PSU, especially if you plan to upgrade your system latter or are concerned about your power bill.

You probably don't NEED a new PSU, like Megamanx00 said, but I would not trust my system to a "zebronic" PSU. I will only buy name brand PSU's as I've had the cheaper brand PSU's blow and take most of my build right along with it. Go with one of the ones that Shubham listed- all are good and reasonable prices, and will serve you better in the long run as well.
