Default Reccomend me a PSU!

So originally I was going to put together a PC for myself, but seeing as I am lazy, and I work at circuit city, I ended up snagging a nice media center HP desktop for half the retail price. Here are the specs:

HP M8124n Media Center edition PC
-3GB DDR2 PC5300
-AMD Athlon 64X2 5200+ 2.6ghz
-500GB HD
-NVIDIA Integrated graphics (blah)
-350W PSU

I already ordered an nvidia 8600GT that I will be putting in. Just need to figure out what wattage PSU I should get? I was thinking maybe 500 or 550... what do you guys think?

The 8600GT requires at least a 350W PSU with 22A on 12V rail.

You could get a FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX500-PN ATX2.2 500W Power Supply. They're one of the best built, most reliable PSU's available.
