My pc specs are:
CPU - intel core i5 - 3470 @3.2ghz
GPU - gtx 650
Ram - Kingston 4gb Pc3-10600 DDR3 1333
Hard Drive - Hitachi 500gb 3.5 Sata
My question is does the Aerocool Strike X bronze certified 600w enough for my whole system? im planning to play and stream DotA 2.

Aerocool generally have a bad reputation for PSUs. Go for Antec, be-quiet, Corsair, PCP&C, SeaSonic, or XFX. 500W is plenty for that system.

The only legitimate reviews I found for that unit conclude that it doesn't really meet the 80+ Bronze specs but other than that, the general concensus seems to be that the unit is sound for it's price range. With that info, I would say it would be an okay PSU to use and should work adequately. The only real issue outside of noise/ripple spikes is that the fan is reported to be loud especially at load

WOW. The Aerocool is the only even slightly decent PSU in there.

Go for it then. As far as playing DOTA2, see the recent Tom's article on it and decide if you are ok with detail levels you'll be able to run.
