Yes that is correct, although I must add that PSU's cannot do full load on all 12V rails so the actual combined amperage on the 12V rails for the Antec 500W you mentioned is 38A which you can find by looking for the combined output for the 12V rails, usually found in the detailed specs.
The antec 500 I mentioned above has 3 12volt rails, each rated at 17A. So what you are saying then is that this PS adds up to 51A and this is great. Is this correct?
The graphics card isn't the only thing in your computer using 12V power, so their power recommendation is based on a guesstimate on what else you've got in your computer.
I have to add one more item I just discovered. For the same 7300GS 512mb card as I mentioned above, EVGA wants a mimimum of 250W@18A and I see that XFX is asking for 350W@20A for the same card.
