I am building up a new system and would like to get the proper PSU for it. AMD II X3 440 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 MOBO Radeon HD 5770 Thermaltake Element V case WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s HD
Which would be a good wattage for the PSU? Also, how good is ANTEC as PSU provider? In my area, I could get brands like corsair and thermaltake from 550W up to 1000W. Can you guys help me out in choosing the proper one that will actually feed my system and what brand to choose from?

antec has very good PSU, look for a unit in the 500-550w range. It will power your current rig with ease plus give you some future headroom.
Seasonic and Corsair also have very good units.
Actually you only need a 450w unit ( you can get by with a 400w 30 amp unit like the Corsair 400CX but that is cutting it close in my opinion ) as long as you are only running one 5770. If you plan to Crossfire you will need 550w. As ct1615 stated Corsair, Antec, PC Power and Cooling or Seasonic are all top quality brands.
