Do you think that the corsair tx650m could be a good choice? But first of all, 650 W are really enough? Thanks a lot!
 
For wattage, I find this chart very useful:

650w is fine for any modern graphics card.
The TXM psu is good quality.
Another good alternative is the seasonic focus line. They are particularly compact at 140mm if that makes a difference.

ON your build, I think 250gb may be a bit small these days.
I think I would use a 1tb samsung evo for all and defer on the HDD untill you actually need the space.
Another alternative is the intel 660P in 1 or 2tb capacity which is cheap but not quite in the same performance class. Still vastly better than any HDD.

Its always a problem choosing an adequate wattage PSU.

Here are some hints pointing the right way.
Look up the power consumption on each and every device throwing on the mb, including the motherboard itself.

On the specifications table, look for a TPD (Total Power Dissapation) figure in Watts.
Total up all the figures to get the required minimum spec.
Then add some 100W to the total, and you have a very good ballpark figure on the required PSU wattage.
