Need a new power supply...

This is my new computer build:
Thermaltake V4 Mid-Tower Case, Black
Diamond Multimedia ATI Radeon HD 6570 2GB GDDR3 PCI 2.1 Graphics Card
AMD Athlon II X2 Dual-core 260 3.2GHz Processor
ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS DDR3 Motherboard
Seagate HDD 100+ GB (Not sure the exact size, never checked.)
4GB 2x2GB Gskill Ripsaw DDR3 RAM

I am wondering what would the minimum required wattage for this build be and what would you recommend?
I have a budget of $40 to $80 on this one and would really appreciate any help. Kinda screwed myself by trusting what I read before. My problem was no the power supply before. LOL

Nevermind. Found a system calculator online. Says Minimum of 550W so I will look for a 600W.

Found this one on a great deal. Can't really pass it up and it will support a good many expansions to my computer. $109.99 - $20 and an additional 20% off. Can't pass it up. Only low cost 5 star power supply that I can find for my price range. Wahoo!

600W should be way more than enough for that system. Enjoy!
