In order to have a decent upgrade path without being limited by your PSU? I'd say going for a 500w PSU should be the safest trick. Corsair CX500M, EVGA offers a 500W 80+ Bronze PSU, maybe even Cooler Master.

 

Maybe you'll be able to find a CX430 somewhere cheap (on Amazon maybe?), but I'm not 100% sure if it'll be enough for all of this. The 430W for my dads 4690k (not OCed) and GTX660 wasn't enough.

you can opt for

Corsair CX550M (grey colour labelled units, avoid green coloured labels)

Seasonic M12II or S12II 520W

EVGA Supernova G2 550W

 

top to bottom = cheaper to more premium PSU

 

edit: wattage wise, even a 430W unit will do just fine tbh

but there arent many good units below 500W (other than some seasonic ones but they're not excellent either)

That system will use less than 200W under load so there's that for you.

 

I'd suggest a Seasonic M12.
