For me personally I dont like to have what is "needed" to run my system, I would recommend a 500-600w and here are some choices.

Im not sure if you want modular or not so I'll choose both:

Corsair CX600:

OCZ Modular:

OCZ ModX:

SeaSonic 520:

Here are some more higher end/higher wattage if you would like to look at them, as for me personally I have a Corsair Gaming Series 800w to always have the extra wattage even though my computer mostly doesnt draw half of that.

OCZ Modular 700w:

You won't be breaking 300W with that hardware so any good quality PSU 420W and up with 2x6pin or 1x8pin PCIe power cable would do the job unless you plan to SLI in which case the target jumps to 600W and up.
