ok so i picked up a used but working 9800 GX2 gpu off craigslist for around 40$. and i doubt my 600 watt psu will power it my 600 watt psu is an ocz psu with 4 18 am 12 volt rails. the rest of the system that will be powered are

5 120mm case fans
E8500 overclocked to 4.1 GHz on a gigabyte socket 775 mobo with an 8pin cpu connector


4 gigs ddr2 ram 4 sata 7k rpm HDD an ethernet card and sound card

i need to know how many watts the psu needs to have as well as how many amps on the 12 volt rails

for those who ask i have an i7 gaming pc this pc is just to mess with since i bought it cheap

below is a pic of my current psu

will the psu in the pic support the GPU as well as the other things in my PC?
