All you need for that system would be 550w. The suggestions that EzioAs gave are good, but if you're in the US, the Rosewill HIVE-550 @ would be another option. It's 80-PLUS Bronze certified and semi-modular (i.e. the 24-pin ATX and 8-pin CPU cords are attached, but the PCIe/SATA ones are removable).
