Which PSU?

Here's what I've got cookin':

Gateway DX4840
Intel Core i3 550 (will probably upgrade to an i5 processor sometime in future)
8GB RAM
nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti (or comparable)
1 TB HDD

I'm not an expert on power supplies, so I wanted a more knowledgeable opinion about this subject. I saw the Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W on the suggested PSU thread. It seemed good enough and pretty inexpensive. Your thoughts.

    that psu would serve your purpose just fine....pretty much for a 560 ti or equivalent 500watts would be plenty. you could even get by with a 450watt psu but to play it safe 500.....some other good brands to look at are pcp&c (expensive) corsair, coolermaster, and antec....the one you picked out is a pretty good deal

    Thanks. I looked into the Corsair ones and I found a great deal on a 600W one. Yay for promo codes and mail in rebates!
