Default PSU for GTX 580

Hey everyone I'm upgrading my friend's gaming rig with an Nvidia GeForce 580 GTX. His current PSU is only 500W and I want to upgrade that as well for future upgrades.

Can anyone recommend me a good PSU with a minimum of 700W for a fair price?

Thanks.

You can run any card on a TX650w or Seasonic 650w equivalent. If your friend never plans on going SLI (which is pointless) then you could get either of these which are decently priced and modular.

Newegg.com - SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Newegg.com - CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Tad cheaper.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance Power Supply

All mentioned are capable of running a GTX690, so they will handle a 580 easy.
