    how big power supply it needs, i have 500W one, is't enough?
    btw i have doubt, when it says a card needs 500W, dose this means 500W should be reserved juice only for card itself or 500W card is enough keeping rest of PC in calculation?

    The card itself requires 236W at maximum performance.

    The 550W requirement suggests they think that you would need about 300W overhead for the rest of the system.

    The card requires one 6-pin and one 8-pin connector. If those connectors are on the same rail then it's worth remembering that the psu has to be able to supply at least 20A on one rail just to power the card. The solution is to find a psu where they aren't on the same rail.

    You can see the connectors here, second image.

    Those are 6-pin and 8-pin pci-e power connectors. The GTX 260 has a pair of 6-pin pci-e power connectors.

    There are some images of the actual psu connectors here. Note that the 8-pin pci-e connector is not the same as the 8-pin EPS connector.
