    Yep, my choice is the same :
    Bitfenix FG550W for 70 EUR
    but there's also two 650W units for a bit more :
    Bitfenix FG650W for 76 EUR, multirail too but it has two 30A rails (with OCP set to 34A) on two PCI-e power cables, so if it will be unstable using one cable (which i highly doubt, hence my recommendation is 550W version) then you can connect it using two separate cables (and thus separate rails).
    Corsair TX650M for 77 EUR, single rail, less trouble so to say, in return for less protection, but it can operate with more noise, Bitfenix is quieter.

    It doesn't require 750W, total power consumption would be hardly higher than 400W, it's just that AMD recomends 750W minimum because they think that most 750W+ PSUs would be okay for it (they're wrong). Both of these units are rather bad, again, that one that i've linked is the cheapest unit i can recommend based from these two sites, there's no much choice on one of them so maybe you can link a couple of others so i see if there's something else. But that unit is very good, don't worry.
    "Cheapest good enough" as in it's definitely good enough for that GPU, and it's the cheapest of the "good enough" units i've found on these sites. It's a very good unit, no cutting corners here.

    A little bit over but that's the cheapest good enough unit that's in stock.
