How many amps are on the +12/v rail of your 520 watt PSU?

What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

Yes they will work together but I have doubts that your PSU can power it.

A 520 watt PSU is not enough.I know because I was planning on using a 6870 crossfire with the same PSU.A 6870 consumes the same amount of power as a GTX460.On paper it says it will work but it's just cutting it way to close.And running a PSU at it's max makes it deteriorate a lot faster.Get a good 600 watt PSU and you should be fine.

I'm not sure what you mean.The AMD equivalent to a GTX670 would be the 7970.
