What power supply should I get for my setup?

I already have bought these:
(4.5K is the max limit for the PSU)

Intel Core i5 3450
Gigabyte B75M-D3H Motherboard
G.Skill RipjawX 2x4GB RAM
Sparkle NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti 1GB GDDR5
1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD
Cooler Master Elite 311 Cabinet

I will be buying an Asus DVD-RW and add 1 or 2 fans in the cabinet.
The max TDP of the processor is 77watts, and i might do mild overclocking of the GPU later on when required.

So I was thinking about Corsair GS500 or Seasonic S12II 520, or will a CX500 V2 suffice for this setup?
Heard good things about Seasonic, but have heard about warranty issues as well(I'm in Bangalore presently)
Or shall I take the Corsair GS600 rather for 4.5K available here at Golchha shop, SP Road, Bangalore? 600watts necessary?

If a GS500 will suffice, why will I spend more on the GS600. I can buy the DVD-RW with that extra money.
The processor is non overclockable and is 3rd gen Ivy Bridge with low TDP. I would mild overclock the GPU later on.

Avoid Seasonic but understand why I am saying so. I've said many times that Tirupathi enterprises are repairing power supplies, not replacing them- and a lot of people including power supply manufacturers who are in-charge of APAC operations have said that there is no RMA centre in India who is competent/knowledgeable or resourceful enough with proper post repair testing equipment to repair power supplies. Some people have been running around in other forums and have said that Seasonic is bad. That is not what I've said. If people cannot read properly and understand what I've written in basic English then some people just need to stop going in other forums and posting garbage.

Also to people who have been recommending FSP, check if those units are being replaced or repaired. No1- repeat- no1 has proper test equipments to repair such units in India.

From the above ^ calculator a 385Watts PSU will be enough.
So I'm sticking with 500watts PSU only.
Now Corsair GS500 or Seasonic S12II 520, will depend on price.

prefer corsair over seasonic due to corsair good after sale service . Seasonic service is now somewhat questionable/..
