I'd go with around a 550W. It'll power all that with plenty of room to spare so that if you buy more hard drives or whatever you'll be fine. Of course, this isn't enough power for another GPU, so be careful of that.

A specific one that I'd recommend is the XFX 550W. Very solid build, very reliable, not a bad price - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6950 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater system power supply. The power supply should also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 32 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.
