Minimum System Power Requirement 450 (W)
Two 6-pin Supplementary Power Connectors

I've used this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in a recent project (no overclocking like you plan for your own) and it still runs strong to this day. It has 2 8-pin connectors that have detachable sections to convert into 6-pin PCI express connectors. It was cheap then but Newegg has since reduced it to $60 apparently.

EDIT: Some of the reviews mention a coil whine issue but I have yet to hear it.

The CX500 is good. The better ones would be the Corsair TX650, Seasonic S12II 520/620 or M12II 520/620, XFX Pro Series 550W, Antec High Current Gamer 620.
