Here's my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1auUc

Will a 700W power supply do?

Also what's 80 Plus Bronze?

650w power supply should do even if you OC CPU and GPU

80 Plus Bronze is your PSU's efficiency. Platinum is highest, 80 plus is lowest but better than nothing. ~Hiherbs

Aaahh, thank you, someone told me that you should have the double of the estimated wattage.

Uh, well I found a cheap 650W 80 Bronze which I think meets my requierments :) (you can check my build to see if it is enough)

Ah really? yeah that was me that said you should get double of the estimate because it could double under heavy load.

Are you sure you don't? because I don't want to fry all my components

I have, read it on a article about building a PC, so I didn't make it up, just shouldn't have believed what one article said without check other sources first :)

So the ''Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply '' should do the trick?

Or should I go with a 600-650W?

the lowest would be a PSU with no efficiency rating. Any single rail PSU that is 80 plus rated or higher will work, normally for a gaming machine you need a minimum of 500w. With new tech the amount of watts needed is constantly going down, so there is you answer.

Just make sure to get a good power supply from a good brand like corsair, seasonic, pc power and cooling etc.

700W is more than enough, but CoolMax sells garbage - many of their products fail to meet advertised specifications and most have a significantly shorter lifespan than other PSUs (power supplies tend to take other components with them when they go, as well).

I'd highly recommend something like Seasonic's SSR-550RM - it's extremely efficient, semi-modular, highly reliable, appropriately powered, and reasonably-priced.
