Hey there,

The recommended PSU for that GPU is 550w. Those GPU's can draw up to 200w at full load. I'd be going a bit above 500w TBH. If you are intent on overclocking both CPU/GPU, then i'd be looking at 600w min. You prob won't hit 600w but, you want to have a bit of headroom so you don't have issues. Even a 650w might be a good idea.

Any of Corsair TXM/RMX/RMI, Seasonic Focus Plus/Gold, EVGA G2/G3 would be quality units that will last you 7-10 years.

Honestly, I think the card would do fine with a GOOD QUALITY 450W or 550W unit.

I am not sure, but I think the BeQuiet U9 models aren't that great of a PSU. @keith12 's suggestions are good ones, though, if you MUST keep it within a tight budget, a CX550 or CX650 would also do the trick, though those would NOT be my first choice.
