Drop down to a gtx 560 ti or radeon hd 6950. The gtx 570 needs two 6-pin PEG connectors and an average of 600w.

it's a solid PSU made by CWT (they make PSU for corsair, thermaltake, and a few others) with 36a on the 12v rail so it will work but you will be pushing the PSU. i would agree with winter and drop down to the GTX560ti or AMD 6950.

average?! wtf is average?

here are the recommendations on the 570
550W Minimum System Power Requirement (W)

total system power doesn't break 400w at gaming
