So i've had mixed opinions around the CX Corsair series.

Current build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/vKBKrH

And i was wondering if i could find a better PSU for the price or is a 600 watt really needed with the current build i have? thanks guys.

The CX600M is not a bad power supply. For a similar price you could also go with the XFX TS 650, which is a bit better unit. Here are the reviews for both, you can compare.

the XFX TS650 gold is a considerably better psu. based on seasonic S12G/G. it's an extra 3 pounds and well worth it. also, you might want to buy a front intake fan for the case.
