GXT570 is a 220w GPU. If you don't plan to SLI, a solid 550w unit should be fine. Something likes SeaSonic M12II 520.

It's an efficiency rating. Say a PSU is 80% efficient. To deliver 250W of power to the computer, it will be drawing 312.5W from the wall. If it's 85% efficient, it will only be drawing ~294W from the wall. If it's 90% efficient, it will only draw ~278W from the wall. Yet it's still delivering 250W to the computer. The 80 Plus ratings certify that PSUs can deliver a certain level of efficiency.
