Regardless of price, I would recommend the Corsair or either of the Antec PSU's. The EarthWatts might make you feel a little better inside because it is more environmentally friendly but it may cost a tiny bit more.

My parrents pc that i build for them uses a XFX GTX260 BE video card with a core i5 chip and 6gb of DDR3 memory, 1tb hard drive and two dvd burners. I installed a Corsair HX 750 PSU and runs just fine. I like Corsair because of their build qaulity and great warranty. Corsair, Antec or Enermax will do just fine, i recommend 700 Watts or more but 600 Watts would probably work depending on the rest of your components.
