Default How Many Amps on the 12v rail for GTX 280 SLI

I keep hearing I will need a 1000watt power supply ,but most reviews I see say the max with a load is 564watts and that is includeing the motherboard and CPU and the harddrives and the other stuff.I read one review saying it will need around 55amps on the 12v rail for SLI .What would be the smallest Power supply for a GTX 280 in SLI.Should a
800watt SilverStone OP with 66amps on the 12v rail be enough,or would a PC Power + Cooling 750watt with 60amp on the 12v rail be enough.Because I don't think my OP SilverStone 650watt is going to be enough with it's 54amps if I go with SLI.
