I think that Corsair CX600M is good enough , in the page of the MSI GTX 980 it says that 500W PSU is recommended so I think 600 is good and CX600M got the correct pins for the GPU.

The wattage is good, but the PSU quality is bad. The Corsair CX series has poor quality capacitors which are rated only for around room temp.

I would suggest something from this list: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/compare/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1%2Cevga-power-supply-220gs0550v1%2Cseasonic-power-supply-ssr550rm%2Cxfx-power-supply-p1550bbefx/
