a good 550W psu should be enough.

So something like a SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 550W https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bkp323/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-550fx would be good.

A good 600/650W PSU. EVGA's G2 & G3 series. Corsair's RMx & series. And whatever Seasonic brings to the table that are above 600+W.

If you would rather be higher, then look for a 600-700w. You'll be more than you need and we'll into the safe zone. Lots of good quality 650w options out there too

Or if you want it a bit cheaper:

Also to consider: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MSEYY23/?tag=pcpapi-20

Note: Those above are semi-modular units.
