You left out the part about budget, there are a zillion of them out there. 500watt should be fine but 600 great too. I believe, they assume you have the rest of computer hooked to this thing too, (Although I could be very wrong about that one.)
Anyway if I was buying one today I would get this one for $60-$65 bucks- It is an evga 600- has single 12 v 49amp rail. There are many others available but like I said if I was buying one today......http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438014
Whatever you decide just make sure it has a single rail for the monster video card,(or 1000+ watts on TWO rails...lol..) Big cards usually need 25 or 30 amps on a single rail so if you get a 600w psu with two rails then each will have maybe 15 to 20amps on each rail, this will not do for most single large cards. If you are going to change your mind and get 2 760's or any SLI (two video cards, nvidia- for ATI it's called crossfire) then this power supply will not be enough. It is made for a single large video card. Also double check your computer for the proper form factor which is 'almost' always ATX. To clarify- The power supply is usually form factor ATX even if the case, motherboard etc. is BTX.
If this cheap to you then I would still get it; and consider an upgrade to one of the newer ssd hard drives too- fast storage really gives a boost to the rocketship.
