NEED HELP! PSU wattage

Can you help me spend as little as possible for an 80 plus bronze certified PSU? I am unsure of the wattage I am going to need as various calculators have given me anywhere from 400-600. And I have been told to get more than what the calculators suggest. Thanks!

CPU - i5-4670 3.4Ghz GPU - GTX 770 2gb DDR5 MOBO - MSI H87-G43 RAM - 3 sticks of DDR3 (1x1gb) (2x4 gb)... 9 gb total HD - Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA 3G

500w will be fine since you wont be overclocking very much. the corsair cx series offers the best bang for buck at that price

Can you link directly to your build on the site?

Here is the power supply I got for my build:
