not too much,the most important part to take into acount on power consumption is Graphics Card that make intense use of +12v rails as the CPU.
I think with a good branded certified 500W you would be fine,but if you are planning to install a GPU on the near future I recommend more, depending on the card TDP

I'd probably get a 550W with 80+ gold so it uses the power more efficiently instead of turning it into waste heat.
Plus its not much more in terms of money than a 500W
