A GTX560 (any of them), though more expensive, is a more powerful card:

A good 650 watt PSU (Corsair, XFX, or Antec for example) should be able to produce 50 amps on the 12 volt rail. What you have is an overrated 500 watt power supply. And while it should run a 560 (15 amps for the card), a 6850 (10 amps) will be a better match for your power supply.
