Specs say 550 is the minimum, power supplies degrade over time.  IMO 650 or a bit more would be better, a bigger unit will not work as hard making it last longer.  What else comes into the equation is system demand.  Use the link below to calculate how much you need then add 25% to the figure you find.

If you mean the CPU power connector (also called EPS connector or ATX12V connector) it will be a split plug (4+4) so you just detach the extra pins if your motherboard has a 4 pin connector.
