You will have to upgrade your PSU as the GTX570 requires 550W and 38A on the PSU's +12V rail(s), which you do not meed the requirements. I would also suggest that you do not cheap out on the PSU as it is the heart of your PC and take a good 650W-700W PSU from a brand like Corsair, Thermaltake, PC P&C, Silverstone. You always want to have a bit of spare room on your PSU as running it at 100% all the time will kill it prematurely.

I also have a question on this too and am unsure on how to read the specs of my PSU so im looking for a bit of help if possible.

I was currently running a GTX 280 but it finally burnt out after 3 years(pink screen of death and artifacting) So im looking at purchasing a 500 series if my PSU can handle it.

This is what ive got at the moment-

CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 1000w

This is what im wanting to run-

GeForce GTX 570

If anyone could help me out on this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

1000W should be easily enough for a 570, even for 2 570's

Yea from what ive been seeing i figured the the wattage would be enough i was just worrying about what Choub890 mentioned about the 38A on the PSU's +12V rail(s). I just dont know much at all about the amp requirements.
