A quality 500w PSU would be sufficient.

I recommend you look for a 600 watt psu to fully power on the case and any optical and hard drives installed.

500 quality power supply is sufficient. I'll quote myself on this.

Quote:
PSU is first on that list because this unit is the most important part of your computer whether you are gaming, 3D Modeling, Rendering, or making a server. I brushed on this before but I want to put it here too. If you use a cheap PSU it could undervolt your system from day one, die randomly, or send a spike through your PC blowing up parts if the voltage input drops or goes higher. A cheap unit does not regulate the voltage as good as a quality unit, nor can they handle the actual rated wattage. A cheap unit is rated at their peak wattage, a quality unit is rated at what they can handle for long periods of time and usually have an overhead of 100-200w give or take. This unit sends electricity to every single piece in your computer that you put money into. When you get a power brown or surge it can mean the death or life of your parts as well.
That being said, I see you're from Serbia so finding something like the Seasonic S1211 520w might be a bit difficult. Although if you could get a Corsair CX500 or CX600 you would be fine. Your machine will take no more than 200w at peak power which is why I'm saying the above will be fine.

No problem whatever you get I hope it lasts a goodwhile.
The athlon is a 95watt cpu, the vga card requires 500 watts to power on.
If you do decide to overclock your cpu in the future.
Becarefull of how high you push it under the power supply specifications in your machine.

500w requirement is based on an assumed total system consumption. His machine with no OC will use no more than 200w so he has some headroom depending on what he goes for.

Those things actually don't really matter all that much when calculating your total power consumption. Things like fans and HDDs only matter if you have a lot of them. A total of 8 HDDs in a line need to be staggered so you don't fry anything but say one HDD and 2 fans aren't squat. The heavy hitters are only the CPU and the GPU. Those total around 185w combined so by adding the rest of your system you're around 200 like I said
