The GTX 970 will be the most power hungry of those cards, bringing the max power estimate to 350 watts. The GTX 960 would have the estimate around 325 watts.

A 550 watt power supply will be more than enough for your build, with room to upgrade to a more powerful graphics card at a later time. The EVGA 550 G2 is a very nice unit: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1

Whatever you choose, do your own research first before you buy. Look for professional reviews of power supplies especially, because there are some cheap fire hazard computer killer PSUs on the market.
