Probably the EVGA SuperNOVA 550w or EVGA SuperNOVA 650w

It's a tad pricey, but it's energy efficient and fully modular.

It's worth adding for people to go for the G2 and not the NEX.

Yeah the Nex is rubbish in comparison to the G2

SuperNOVA G2 or G3, specifically. The NEX is blah.

If you're not overclocking, then 550 will be enough.

EVGA G2 650 or Corsair RMx 650 would go well with the build.

You are likely to need a storage drive also.

As some people pointed out, don't go with the SuperNOVA NEX. Go for the SuperNOVA G2, or G3. The SuperNOVA NEX isn't that good.
