Best bang for my buck!

Hey guys, this is my first forum post and my first custom rig. I just yesterday bought at Micro Center:

-Intel i5-4670K CPU -MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard -EVGA GeForce GTZ 750 Ti 2g FTW ACX Video Card

I am now focusing my efforts on the Power Supply. I definitely want something quality and was told I only really need 600W or so, if I ever add another video card I'll have to upgrade the power supply to 1000W but as of right now, my budget is really under $100 unless there's nothing quality out there but that's where I wanted to stay, any thoughts or help would be appreciated. I've been researching all the components for over a year and am almost there so please help me out!

PS oh and next i'll be looking into the storage, I know I want a SSD for just my OS and at least a 1-2 TB SATA internal hard drive for everything else, so if you have thoughts on those I'm all ears!

UPDATE

I think I'm going with the Corsair 600W ATX12V, after everything I've read I think this is the best value and will provide for best performance. Anyone have any thoughts one way or the other?
