A couple that come to mind that should last you for a while as in your next build as well.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

Right now the Corsair is a little bit better deal. Either company is great and I usually look for the best deal from either depending upon what offers are going on.

This is a top notch PSU that will power everything safely and reliably. It is also much more efficient than your current PSU meaning less heat and lower power bills (compared to other less efficient PSUs on the same system)

NCIX.com - Buy PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W EPS12V ATX V2.2 24PIN SLI Ready Active PFC 80MM Fan Power Supply - S61EPS In Canada.

Hefe, he lives in Canada and on NCIX the corsair is more expensive than the PC P&C

whoops sorry.

But I did cover myself by saying to look for the one that was the best deal.

I would say get a GPU and some ram but i can't say for sure that your PSU will handle it and if it doesnt, then your **** out of luck =/
