For a single card setup, you only need 600W. Gold rating is good, but remember the cost to get it is probably more than the saving in your electricity. Definitely get a modular one.

for RAM, popular choice is 8GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz or its equivalent G.Skills kit.

TBH you don't even need 600w if you are using modern parts like Ivy-bridge and 7 series GPUs.
