ok i im planning on purchasing a gtx 570 for my system even after reading the psu guides im still not certain my psu can support the card.
Here is the link to my psu
http://hecgroupusa.com/products/switching-power-supply/...
If it matters my cpu is amd anthlon 7750 duel core
i know the card comes with a 2x 4pin molex to pcie adapter which i have open cables for but im
unsure if this will work.

no it won't work, also the 570 a huge waste of money for your system since your cpu is so old.

You should buy something like a 6770.

well you should get a new PSU as well, the one you have only has 29A down the 12v combined, to safely use the 570 you'd need a minimal of 35A, would be good to be higher rather than lower.
