Im guessing since your weight says 330 that your looking for a significant amount of weight loss?
The best workout plan ive even found has been consistancy. Just go to the gym. In your case i would go 5 days a week, mon-fri. Lift weight 3 of those days, do at least 30min of cardio everyday. On the days you dont lift just hook up to your favorite cardio machine for like an hour on low. As long as you keep goin you'll see a difference rigtht away no matter what your doin.
If farther down the road you want to lets say up your bench/squat etc, then theres specific routines for that.

Do heavy compound lifts at a fast pace. Make sure you're huffing and/or puffing at the end of each set. The fat will melt away with such exercises as: Clean, Clean and push-press, one-arm dumbbell snatch, squat, front squat, deadlift, and bench. Keep the workouts short (less than an hour) with high intensity (lift heavy and only have 1-2 minute breaks between sets). And minimize carbohydrate intake after 6 P.M., preferably with most of your daily carbs centered around pre and post workout meals. This is a fail-proof plan with or without the accompaniment of cardio.
Bicep curls and tricep extensions and any exercise of the like won't do crap for your goals, they're simply wasted time and energy.

You could most likely lose 10-20 pounds your first month then 1-2 pounds a week after that. its a real body specific thing, you might find with a good diet you start shedding pounds like nothing.
Just rememeber, dont starve yourself, it actually is better to eat more healthy food than a little junk food. Oatmeal is your friend, no sugar though, fruit, or peanut butter and bananas...mmmmmm...that sounds good right now my next meal is comn up.

Supersets, they will rock fat off.
Example, Bench press then waste no time and go the leg press. thats 1 set. also like you said Diet is key.
Google "calorie intake" and then you can find out how many calories you should be getting filling that out. Its not going to be exact but it should give you a safe and good start.
Best of luck.

Just joking about the generalization about supersets being for panzies. I use them too every now and then to prompt GH release.

Keep it brief, heavy, and tiresome.
If you're doing it really well, you should have the sensation of wanting to fall asleep.

Personally, I would recommend a circuit of compound movements, done with heavy weight (like meltdown) but also incorporate so low-impact cardio after lifting and/or on non-training days.
Eventually, work your way up to high intensity interval training (i.e. sprints), but those can wait until you feel you need to increase the intensity of your workouts.
These, coupled with a good clean diet should drop the pounds.

That, and I live by the rule that what's harder to do is better for you. Jogging two miles doesn't leave me nearly as breathless and/or dizzy as some fast, heavy cleans followed by fast-paced front squats.
