Default Help with buying new PSU

Hi!
Im buying a new graphic card for my ASUS CG5275, and I will need more power supply that the one provided from my computer.
Im looking for a good PSU with at least 500W and have a flexible budget! I need help because Im not really great with hardwares, plus I dont get the compatibility requirements necessary for my computer! If anyone could help me it would be great!
Thanks.

whats your budget.

Some things that you should have as a power supply, a single 12V rail, which means the power distribution is not biased, and make sure its at least 80 plus certified so that its efficient. Also, invest into modular power supply so that cable management is easy, and they cost about the same.

Corsair GS500 is a very reliable PSU, I have one, just that its the 700watt version.
Also I believe that the OCZ Modxstream is quite good.
