i checked some sites with PWsupply calculators and some came 700W, then some 400W.
I'm worried about the fact that my GPU need a minimum of 500W and i know i have to look at the 12V@(number).
So the Corsair has a decent 12V@(number) thingy support? (i have no idea how its called)

Yes the Corsair will have plenty of Amps on the 12v rail, and the quoted Wattage from the manufacturers are given with quite a bit of headroom. You could run a Titan on a good quality, efficient 500W PSU. The 500W Corsair should be fine, but like I said if you can afford it, get the 600 just because it won't have to work as hard to run your system.
