What Wattage Power Supply Will I Need?

So recently my PC's 700w PSU overheated and broke, but it was a very cheap brand so it was expected. I'd like to know if anyone has an idea of how much power I'll need in a new PSU.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 1GB
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2GHz stock fan
2x4gb DDR3 RAM (Not sure of the specific product)
ASRock M3A UCC Motherboard
CIT Saturn case (I'll also be replacing this)

Sorry I missed out some details, I'll be happy to find other information asked for.

Thanks for the help

Unless you have a bunch of mechanical hard drives in your system, anything 500w or more should be fine.

corsair vs-450 or cx500 will be enough
or cx600 if you overclock
