Anything of 600W or above. I recommend a CX600 if your looking for something cheap. Or the SeaSonic X 660 if your thinking High end

IMO Sabertooth is overpriced - go for a GA-Z77X-D3H, ASRock Z77 Extreme4, or P8Z77-V LK.

Use savings to get a 7950.

EDIT: 500W+ for most single-GPU LGA115x platforms, brands in my sig.

Missed that - too used to seeing people talking about the Z77 Sabertooth.

Go for something in the 970 or 990X range - you don't intend to run SLI/CF? I'm a bit less up to date on the AM3+ boards.

550W+ then.

Also, 60GB is a bit small for an OS drive.
