  1. Something like this Antec unit should work. Anything from Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair, and Enermax tend to be good PSUs.

    what are your system specs?
    even though the nVidia specs suggest getting a 500 watt PSU; that is to compensate for low quality PSUs.
    a good quality 350-450 watt PSU would be adequate. (as long as the 12v rail has 12 amps for the card)

    HOWEVER if you think you will upgrade your gfx card in the next few years go for a 550 watt:
    Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE $59.99
