what's your max budget? You REALLY don't want to cheap out on your power supply.....I'd recommend XFX Core Edition 550w

I entered your build into PCPartPicker and anticipated PSU requirement is 450 watts.
If you'd like to review the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3pdvk

Therefore I recommend this PSU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx600...
It's $50, 600 watts, Corsair, and Semi-modular.

Nope to the CX series. Poor quality capacitors could fail early.

This XFX one is significantly higher quality.

You always want to get a little higher wattage than you need as power supplies degrade over time....at least I would.

450watt is more than you need.
Video card manufacturers know that people buy crappy power supplies, so they over recommend.
The Antec VP 450w is not a crappy power supply.

Would a 500w be good enough

A good 500W would be, though I wouldn't want to try overclocking on it.

The second link in my sig has a list of good quality PSUs.
