Probably 500-600watts with 35+ amps. Without overclocking or SLI, you should be fine with that. But get a high-quality supply. Wattage and amperage alone doesn't tell you everything. Go with a company that uses quality parts. A good 500watt PSU will outperform a cheap 600watt PSU and will save you from replacing your entire rig once it blows up ;) 

I personally recommend PC Power & Cooling ^.^

Hmm, how good is Thermaltake as compared to PC Power & Cooling

I've never used a PC Power & Cooling but i'm a happy thermaltake toughpower cable management owner :p 

I think the smallest 80 plus certified power supply that thermaltake offers is 600watt
