Do you live in the US and can you buy online? (I know you linked a newegg page, but some do that so we know what product they are talking about.)

Assuming yes, any of Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic's 550W PSUs will work. Others to consider include Enermax, OCZ, and Thermaltake.

that's a mediocre PSU

lthough some can see Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 550 W as an option if you are not going to pull 550 W from it, we can't recommend this unit, as it burns if you try to pull its rated wattage. Its main technical problem is efficiency, between 73.2% and 77.5%, which would prevent us from recommending this unit even if it could deliver its labeled power.

But there is another problem: pricing. Costing USD 65 it is simply too expensive for what it is. For the same price you can buy an OCZ StealthXStream 500 W, which provides higher efficiency.

You see, this unit is a renamed Seventeam ST-500BAZ, a 500 W power supply that has already been discontinued by the manufacturer - no wonder it couldn't deliver its labeled power.

Or if you would like to spend about 65$ look into the Corsair tx650w PSU. It is on sale for 89$ and 69$ after MIR and then an additional 10% off. It would leave room for upgrades in the future and it's a great PSU.

Wait cotton pick minute, I have that PSU in my PSU wish list along with the Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

It has SATA plugs, but they aren't listed in the newegg specs.
