How much power is being used if I have these components.

Sapphire Radeon 7770
AMD Phenom II X6 1045T (I disabled two cores and overclocked the CPU to 3.1GHZ)
Coolermaster 212+
3 Case Fans (1x120mm 2x80mm)
1 Hitachi HDD 7200rpm
2 DVD Driver

Reason is cause I have a generic power supply rated at 750W with only 33A on the +12V rail and I want to overclock more (Hence the reason I disabled two cores)

you are probably just under 300w at load while gaming but 33a on the 12v is what you find on 450w PSU

you may want to invest in something better before you push your CPU any more

I really cant afford a new PSU now. Do you think I should stop? I wanna go higher as i still not happy with my performance so far.
