  1. actually, any PSU with an 6 pin connector would be sufficient for the card since it draws a lot less than 150w, maybe 100w, not even since most 750 tis don't even have a 6 pin connector. heck even the 300w psu integrated into your system would be sufficient, but just to be sure, get this one http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vs-seriestm-vs350-350-watt-power-supply
  2. I would recommend AGAINST buying that corsair unit. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html rates it at tier 4, i.e. one tier above "avoid at all costs".

    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-hcg520m This antec unit would be perfect for your build. It's great value for money, has more than enough power, and will last you for years to come. It's a tier 2 unite on the same list as the corsair.

    Yeah the only good corsair units nowadays are the RM, RMi, AX, AXi, HXi series, but there are better units than these for lower prices. The Antec unit I recommended is better than the RM/RMi units which are 1.5x the price

    Are you sure it works with the Acer aspire tc-605 though?
    Information about power supply cables and connectors
    http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html has detailed information about the various power connectors and adapters which are there in power supplies. The person who is building his first PC will definitely find this information useful
