That's for the whole 'system' - the whole pc. Usually about 300W is allowed for everything but the graphics card. And there's some headroom built in to allow for 'aging'.

It means that it should work on almost any 600W unit; As long as you have a high quality 500W unit, you should be fine.

I can recommend the Corsair GS 800 i am using atm, only sad side it is not modular so my case is full of cable :D 
So maybe Corsair GS 600 would be good for you?
