If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.

It says that my psu has a single 12 rail with 44A, max power output 660w. And i think i need about 34 amps, so my psu should be enough right?

you are fine, like the others have stated the GX series is not great but OK enough. If it makes you feel better I run my GTX560ti + OC CPU on a 550w PSU also, i draw around 320w during gaming.
