What PSU should I get?

Hey, just wondering if anyone could suggest what PSU I should buy, I've already looked at a few calculators and some give different results which is why i came here.
I'm looking for a decent PSU, 80 plus rated. I'm mainly here to find out what wattage I'm gonna need.
My components:
CPU: AMD FX 8350 8-core
Motherboard: Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6870
CPU heat-sink: stalk one that came with the CPU
1 chassis fan
2 HDDs
1 DVD/CD drive (combo)
about 5 USB devices (e.g. headset, mouse, keyboard)

  2. For this build a 500- 550W PSU is more than enough. You can get Seasonic G series 550W 80 gold plus else you can go with Corsair TX 550M modular PSU 80 bronze plus
