Not sure what your budget is but I'm going to suggest a Corsair CX500 for your build.

I would go to the new build section and post your budget as if that build is for gaming its just all wrong.

1 - Why the Sandybridge 2500k with a Z77 board, either get a 3570k and that board, or save some money and get a z68 or p67 board to go with the 2500k.

2 - Games are largely GPU bound if your gaming using that 550ti you will get bad performance. You would get better performance with a cheaper CPU and a much better Graphics Card.

To answer though I would get any good brand (xfx,seasonic, corsair, ocz, antec) PSU over 450W with a single 6 pin for the 550ti.
