As I continue my research into my first my build, there have been a few odd questions. This one concerns my selection of GPU and PSU. From what I've read, the 770 Lightning is very demanding. Would a CX600 support this card?

It has a TDP of 250W.

A 600W PSU should be more than enough to take care of it. Don't worry, go for it unless you are in for SLI. In that case, get an 850W PSU. :) 
As of now, 600W should be more than enough.

While it's electrically sufficient the CX series is a budget line and it uses cheap capacitors that are known to fail under load. I recommend something better for a high end graphics card. You can do better for very close to the same price.

Any suggestions for a different PSU? I'm looking for one under $90

Are you in the US? If so The Seasonic X 650 is on sale for $79. The X series are about the best power supplies on the market and the benchmark all others are compared to. 80 Plus Gold certified and full modular. It's usually more like a $130 power supply or more.

Add the extra $20 off promo code at the top of the page for the $79 final price.

*Edit
I had a look at the Canadian price, maybe I should do some more looking around ($130 after sale).

No extra $20 promo for you but it's still on sale for $109.

Staying in your budget is the S12 II. It's only 80 Plus Bronze and it's not modular but it's a Seasonic and they are the best.
