Pick a power supply for me?

Hi, I'm working on my first build, but I'm having trouble picking a power supply that will work for me. I want something that's extremely reliable and can last for a LONG time (maybe 6-7 years). 600W would be preferred, while it has to be over 500W. Here's my part list:

i5 3550 (probably no overclock)
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8gb ddr3 1333
500 gb hdd 7200 rpm
not sure about mobo yet
gtx 560 ti

If anyone could explain what I should look for, that would be awesome too!

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to mention, I have a budget of around $50-60. It's not firm though, but try to stay around that range.
