I'd recommend a 600-750 watt just for future video upgrades.
Also you will be much happier with an SSD instead of your 500gb HDD.
yes.. all of your components are compatible. I suggest to get Gskill ripjawsx 8GB(2x4GB) DDR3 1600 to make it more killer. and regarding PSU, get corsair CX500 as a budget PSU and corsair TX 650 for a 650W PSU
Any of the three will work fine. I just gave you some different choices to look at. Remember, do not go cheap on your PSU, this is the heart of your system. Investing in a high quality PSU will make your system run for years to come.
