'CoolerMaster GX Series 650w' would be the one I would pick out of that list. You need a 650w.

The only other brand you have listed that I am familiar with is Silverstone, which is a good brand, but you need more than 500W.

Any 80 Plus rated PSU at 500W would power that hardware at stock settings or a slight OC. But only that hardware, meaning that any additional components would necessitate a PSU upgrade.

Since PSU upgrades are expensive and incredibly annoying, I always err on the side of caution and give myself some extra breathing room. So yes, 650W - somewhere in that neighborhood.
