You mean i5 2500k I think?
You could technically get away with a 400Watt PSU with your rig and SB assuming a moderate overclock. For extreme overclocking a 500Watt would be safest.
Can look at an Antec NeoEco or EarthWatts as quality PSUs that come at a reasonable price point.
P.S. have you tried unlocking your 555? Many chips unlock to 4-cores. Good way to save some $$ there.
