IMO . . PC Power & Cooling and Antec are the two best . . a 400 - 500wat would work for you

I would recommend a Seasonic 500W, it is next to PC Power and Cooling in quality, efficiency, and high power output. For continuous use, it will be reliable and use less power.  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817151024
