Do you have a link to your build list. Everything in that will give us the required info.

If you want a great PSU with room for updates and/or overclocking I'd suggest this one. It has a great price and a 10 year warranty. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr

I'd recommend the EVGA 750 G2... Tier 1 PSU at a pretty good price. If you want to keep the price lower then the EVGA 750 B2 is also a great choice for ~$75

EVGA 750 G2 is decent product at best price.

You can always run a check here to get an idea of the recomnded PSU.

For this system it seems the recommended wattage is 580W, so you should be fine with a 600W PSU. If you want to upgrade later on however, I'd recommend to get a better one immediately which will save you some money in the long run.
