A top quality 500 - 550 is plenty big enough. A larger PSU will not hurt anything, but your wallet.
It used to be if it said Corsair on the label, it was top quality. But they've cut back in recent years on their budget lines, which includes the CX series. I don't recommend Corsair PSUs unless you go for their top tier lines, which are still excellent.
If I had to choose from only those 2 you listed, I would take the TT. But I personally like EVGA supplies and have been using them in all our builds lately. SeaSonics are also highly recommended. I prefer Gold certified. While they do tend to cost more, they are also more efficient than Bronze supplies. So over the life of the supply, they will consume significantly less energy and generate significantly less heat.
Any in this list
would be great but I note the SeaSonic G Series 550W Gold is currently being offered for $55 after $15 rebate, with free shipping. I think I would jump on that one if I were looking for a supply today.
