look up those power supplies in question and see how many amps are produced on the 12v rail

http://www.supercircuits.com/resources/tools/volts-watt...

this is a calculator

basically you have the 12v rail which powers your GPU if your GPU needs 200 watts of power then you will need at least 17 amps on the 12v rail

amps multiplied by volts gives you wattage output

650 watts is more than fine for that card. It's minimum suggested Power Supply is 500w.
The CS SERIES is a semi-modular PSU, meaning that only the main cables are hardwired into the system. You can pick and choose what other cables are hooked up. Very handy when it comes to cable-management. It also has more PCIe connectors, & flat, low-profile cables. It's also Gold efficiency rated if that means a lot to you.

The VS series is more value oriented. Non-modular (meaning they are all hardwired in and cannot be removed) have less connectors and are standard looking wires with a black mesh sleeve over them.

Either will work. Just depends on if the CS series features are worth the extra cost to you.

Hope this helped.
