Which PSU should I get for a GTX 970?

Hello everyone. I would like to upgrade my graphics card from a GTX 660 Ti to a GTX 970, but I think I should change my PSU to one a bit higher quality. My current PC is below:
ASUS GTX 660 Ti 2GB
i5 3470 3.2GHz
Corsair Vengeance 8GB Ram
MSI B75MA-P45
Corsair CX500
WD 500GB Hard drive
Sharkoon T9 Case
Windows 10 64-Bit

So my question is, which PSU should I get if necessary at all and do you think there is anything else I need to upgrade to support a GTX 970? My Budget for the PSU is about £40/$60. Thank you for helping.

    You are not going get a decent psu around £40 that is at least 500W.
    This would be a good psu for the price:

    If you want a higher quality psu that is modular as well, the EVGA GS 550W is a good choice:
