Might be abit overkill, but its on sale for the next few hours and that's one hell of a deal. Would def future proof your system. No real point in considering it after it goes off sale tomorrow morning. Current sale=60 bucks with mail in rebate btw.

Nvidia recommends a 550w PSU with a minimum of 38a on the 12v rail. Great brands are Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Enermax, Silverstone and Antec.

Here is a great 600w modular unit from PC Power and Cooling on sale for $69.
