You don't want to just say "any kind of psu", as there are some real pieces of crap out there. You want Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, OCZ, XFX, PCP&C, beQuiet, Enermax, or a few others. You may also want to go for Ivy Bridge and an H77 board as there is no point to Zseries chipsets if not OCing or SLI/CF.

500W is enough.

You should plan this when your actually nearing the date to buy the build. Prices will inevitably change and if you could wait to maybe June, you might have more money and you will be able to get the new Intel Haswell processors.

I can wait to June but depend on money too :D

Thats something you should not worry about. Set the money aside or something, then gradually save more. It will potentially save you from upgrading after a year or so.
