It all will depend on your budget. 750W is the recommended for these days. But do not skimp on your power supply.

Get something like this: - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

The card you mentioned needs 500W, so upgrading to a 700W should be fine, from my understanding. I just purchased a 700 W power supply and going to be making the attempt at throwing it in my Dell tonight.

~650-~750W is definitely doable with the 560Ti. The card should fit easily in the case, as it's ~9.5" long, and the case is just a little over 16" deep.
