I have an OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro (80 PLUS Standard Certified) power supply and would like to upgrade my graphics card to ASUS GTX580 DirectCU II.
The question is, is this power supply sufficient? and if it is, then by just what margin?
I have an Intel Core i5-760 CPU and two hard drives.
Thanks in advance.

I would consider it a close call. It is what the card recomends, though.

What is the Amperage on the 12V line? The minimum is 42A on the 12V for the 580.

His PSU has exactly 42a on the +12v rails. I think it should be alright. I'd probably steer clear of overclocking the card however.
