Default 4870x2 power requirements

On the ati site it says that a 650w psu is recommended but does anyone know the actual requirements for amperage? Just bought one of here and im hoping my 600 ocz stealthxstream will at least run it for a little while til i can get a higher end psu. Obviously if it does run itll be stressing the crap out of the psu so it may not work very long, but i dont feel like buying a new psu right now since i just dropped most of my cash on the card.

Specs are everything in the machine at the moment are in my signature, and its the 140w 940.
