500w is sufficient, but I don't like CM as a power supply manufacturer.

I would go with PC Power and Cooling Silencer 500w (Mark III).
Sure, it might be a slightly more expensive but its modular and seasonic based.

I've been using PCP&C for years and I have never had an issue with their power supplies, ever.

They've gotten better.
The newest units are not made by FSP or those other low end guys. The high end is Superflower, who currently have some amazing units out there.
