i checked hardwarecanuks review of the 570 and 285 oc and the wattages and usage seem the same...

that PSU is actually good for one 570 card. you shouldn't have any problem running that card.

Yeah, the 750W Corsair is completely fine...the video card manufacturers will state higher PSU requirements on the box because most people are using crappy generic PSUs but Corsair PSUs are actually underrated...it will be more than capable of handling the 570.
