Heres a very good site on PS's.

http://www.jonnyguru.com/

With what he says in mind i would choose one of these.

Antec

Aerocool

Silverstone

They arent cheap but you get what you pay for. I always look for 18 V + on the 12 volt lines, 80% efficiency, and always stick to known brands.

I looked the case up on the net and it will take any standard ATX power supply. You are good to go with the aerocool. I do notice that on the NZXT website all the PS's are 650 watts or better but unless you are going to run dual SLI cards and a bunch of hardware a 500 watt PS should do the job.

Just make sure the PSU you get has the correct motherboard connector (IE 20 pin vs 24 pin). You can run a 24 pin with a 20 pin but it may heat it up and is NOT recommended. Most decent PSU's come with the option for both. With your setup I would definitely get a 500W minimum. I recommend Thermaltake, they make a great supply but be prepared to pay about $100 for it.
