There are power supply calculators floating around the internet, but just looking at your system specs, a good 500w PSU should be plenty.

For the record I don't think that system will use more then 300W at full load. It might not even cross 250W. A 450W PSU will be more then enough. (not for CF of course so if you think you might want that in the future then get something like a 500 or 600W.)
