I'm building a new PC and I want to know what kind of PSU I should buy for it

AMD A8 6600K APU (CPU with integrated graphics)
Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-HD3 Motherboard
WD 1TB Caviar Blue HDD
Cooler Master K380 Case
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Heatsink & Fan
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) RAM
Samsung SH-224DB Optical Drive

Many thanks

A 450w would be a good choice.

I may end up adding a discrete graphics card in a few months or so, and I wouldn't want to buy another PSU, so should I get something a little higher?
