  Help with new Video Card and power supply

It may seem I'm posting on the wrong forum, but be patient :D

I'm about to acquire a new VGA but I'm not sure if my current power supply can handle it.

Current Power Supply:
Cooler Master 600W Extreme Power Plus

VGA i want to get:
Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 2.5gb version

It seems I'm just in the threshold in power usage, but just to be sure I wanted to ask you guys first. I currently have a GTX260 running without problems (and overclocked CPU).

The rest of my system specs are:

CPU: Intel i7 920 @2.8GHz
HDD: 2TB Green and 1TB Black Seagate drives
DVD: 1 DVD drive
RAM: 3 DDR3 memory sticks (2gb each)
PCI: 1 Soundblaster X-fi xtrememusic

And that's pretty much it. Also, right now there are 6 deals in Newegg that are really useful If i had to buy a PSU:;page=1

Only Corsair, but I've heard good things about their PSU's... HX850W looks interesting...

Thanks a lot!!!
