Can you have a look on the side of the PSU for a label with information about the powersupply and tell us how many amps and watts it has on the +12V rail(s)

A quick google search didn't come up with much..

AC Input - 100-120v / 200-240V ~ 10/6a 60/50 hz

DC output | +3.3V | +5V | +12v1 | +12v2 | -12v | +5vsb |
current | 36a | 36a | 24a | 22A | 0.6A | 3A |

Load | 480W | 18W |
Max Load | 580W | 23W |

basicaly this is what is written in the side of the psu.

Seems like an older PSU with alot of power on the +3.3V and +5V rails which isn't much good for todays PC's, I'm pretty sure your PSU isn't good enough.

A Corsair HX650W would be a good choice

Yeah I'd be looking at a good 650. Corsair, Antec, etc..

but the thing is : this setup i have now is temporary.

i planned to buy a new one soon with core i7, the gtx 470 and 6 gb of ram what would u recommend for a psu?

That 650 corsair should still be good but a 750 should last you for years to come.

I'm sticking with my recommendation of the Corsair HX650, its plenty powerful now and when you upgrade to a core i7 system it'll still be plenty powerful.
