Buying a psu for custom build

I'm building my first computer and I was wondering if anyone could suggest any good psu's?
I have an i5 3570k, Asus P8H67-V motherboard and GTX 570 and a Zalman Z9 case so far. I'm thinking roughly a 600w psu would provide enough power if it were good enough quality. I'm quite tight on money so I don't want to spend too much, but I also don't want to cheap out on a crappy power supply.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I haven't used EVGA power supplies before, but that looks like a great option at a great price :P
