This Corsair 450W would meet your needs nicely. If you wanted a little wattage then you might want to consider this Corsair 550W. What you want is a single rail psu with substantial amps on the +12v rail.

You could always get these two, Corsair 650W and PC Power & Cooling 610W.

With a decent overclock on the system you are building you should expect a 3DMark06 score around 9500 I would guess. High end games like Crysis you will only be able to play with moderate settings and get around 30-40FPS I am guessing. So they will play nice, but will not look as flashy as it would with a 8800GT.

This Thermaltake 430W would be decent power supply and is regarded as a good budget PSU. It only has 18amp on the +12v rail so you will not set the world on fire.

If you overclock the processor to a decent level (eg. 3Ghz - very achievable on that motherboard) you are looking at 10-11k in 3dmark06, you may touch 4k in vantage. As for games you should be able to max out any on a 22" screen.
