You'll do good with this one: FSP Group Blue Storm II 500 ATX 2.2V 500W Power Supply.
It supplies 36A on the dual 12V rails which is plenty for your video card. FSP (Fortron Source) is one of the most reliable, high quality manufacturers.

I'd recommend this to, it's a great PSU for people living in the US.

I get better ones, cheaper but only in Canada

I think we have a 650W from BFG in stock at work... But that 8600 isn't too demanding. All it requires is a 400. Ayotte has had one of our 550's running his 8800 and he says it's pretty solid.

As long as it's 450-500W up and is from a good brand (hiper, corsair, or get a pc power and cooling if you want a very reliable PSU) then you'll be fine.
