What we need to know is the brand and model or at least what it provides in amps on the +12Volt rail. To answer your question some manufacturers rate their PSU´s at constant load others at peak load which is what your tech is referring to.

If I found the correct one in the link it only has 22amps on the +12 volt rail which is not sufficient for a GTX260. It is a typical generic PSU so your tech was right. You will need a minimum of 30 amps on the +12 volt rail. Good brand names to look for would be Corsair, Antec, OCZ and Enermax to name a few.

the gtx 260 consumes around 19amps, in addition to your other hardware.
