Default 5750 @ 23A?

I have this 700W dual-rail PSU and this MicroATX MB. I would like to get this new video card.

I am concerned about the amperage per rail (23A) as the PSU has dual 4-pin connectors but only one can be connected. Will it work?
I would prefer not to have to replace the PSU or MB. I am not a hardcore PC gamer, but I would like to be able to play Crysis well. If that card doesn't work, what would be a good alternative?

Usually the 23A means a total psu rating, Not a single rail of a multi rail psu.

yea, that psu would run that card fine.

but why are you worrying about the 4-pin connections? the 5750 would require one 6-pin which your psu has 2 of (well one 6 pin and one 6+2 pin)

but if youre looking for a good gaming card at that price range, id pick the 4870 over the 5750.
