There are other good choices, but one quick and easy answer is an Antec Truepower New 550W PSU.
If you think you may want to add another video card, get the Truepower New 750W model. Truepower PSUs are 80+ Bronze certified and consistently receive excellent competent technical reviews.
If they are not available, or you do not like Antec, then find models of similar wattage from Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, Enermax, or the latest OCZ that are 80+ certified.

Would a TX650 do the job for me?

I'll just pay the extra $5.00 on Newegg, and get the TX750w.

Much better deal, imo.

Avoid the Chokemax; it received a "4" at jonnyguru, for among other things having dangerous ripple at high loads and being overrated by 350W: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...

The Antec Truepower New is also a semi-modular PSU. It reviews better than the Corsair (and is more efficient), but if the Corsair is cheaper, by all means it is a decent choice too.
