Need Power supply help!

I am going to build a new PC, config will be


Core i7-920
Gigabyte ex58-UD5
Corsair 12 gb ddr3
ATI 5970
GTS 250 as PHYSX (If i get GTX 480)
Cooler Master HAF 932


I think the upcoming GTX 480 will Consume same power as of ATI 5970 or more than that. I will use my current GTS 250 as physx processor.
Please Recommend me a good PSU.
