For what little it would cost,I suggest you beef up your PSU a bit. Go with at least 800 watts. You never know what you might want to add to your rig in future. Can't go wrong with a bit more power.

^^^ All these guys with opinions on what the OP is asking...."what GPU should I get?".....yet not one of these guys asked what Resolution the OP is planning on using.........PC 101....to OP...What Res are you planning on using?...this will help determine just "how much" GPU Horsepower and VRAM would best suit your needs.

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores FTW 797MHZ 1280MB DVI Mini-HDMI Display Port PCI-E Video Card - eVGA - 012-P3-2066-KR
Z68 Mobo ( with that CPU this makes sense)
