Don't get the old Corsair 650TX, as there is a newer better version available now.
Some suggestions for PSUs to save money:
XFX Pro 650W Core Edition 80Plus Bronze $90 ($20 rebate, $6 shipping)

Antec High Current Gamer HCG-620 80Plus Bronze $70 ($20 rebate)

However, as your motherboard doesn't support more than one graphics card you don't need as much as 650W.
OCZ ZS Series 550W 80Plus Bronze $80 ($20 rebate)

XFX Pro 550W Core Edition 80Plus Bronze $70 ($20 rebate, $6 shipping)

Have you seen this combo?
Intel i3-2100 & Asus P8H67-M LX $199
I don't think it saves you any money (especially if you get a similar combo with your current mobo) but I thought it would be nice to get an Asus motherboard, with UEFI, etc.

Yeah. Also get P67 or Z68 mobo. Will be more future proof
