What PSU should I choose ???

I am planning a build in the summer and was looking at PSU calculators but they all give me different information!! Can anyone please advise me on the recommended PSU wattage for my build? The specs for the build are:

AMD fx-6300 cpu
Asus M5a99x Evo r2.0
Asus HD 7770 (1gb)
8gb (2x4gb) DDR3 1600MHz Ram
Seagate 500gb 7200rpm hdd
Sandisk 64gb SSD
Asus DRW-24B5ST SATA drive

(I might add a HDD or SSD in the future)

Also, I am not too worried about efficiency; as long as it is a 80+ or 80+bronze, it is ok. I am not looking for anything higher than a 80+bronze, to keep costs low.

    Depending on your upgrade plans, the 380W Antec Earthwatts would do well for that build as is, but would not be sufficient to support a graphics card stronger than a HD7850 or GTX660 later. Something in the 450W-500W range would give you more room for upgrades.
