Any good 600 watt would work just fine and have some room to grow with higher end cards later. Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, Seasonic, and so on. None of those crappy $50 and less PSU's.

Just goes with a Bestec! Seriously though Newegg has a Corsair for 69.99. Just never buy a cheap power supply you'll regret it.
