Almost finished buying all the parts for my gaming lan PC. Just wondering which power supply to choose.

i5 4670k
Antec KUHLER H2O 920
Gigabyte z87N
Samsung 840 Series 120GB
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM
BitFenix Prodigy Mini ITX
Either GTX 660/7870 or 7950 (still undecided,mainly awaiting finance)

All of these are almost the exact same price.

Seasonic S12II Bronze Series 520W 80Plus Bronze Power Supply
FSP Group AURUM GOLD 600W (AU-600)
Antec HCG M Series HCG-520M 520W
COOLER MASTER G500

Or if anyone has any other suggestions i should look into.

Both the HCG 520m and the S12II 520w are rated very high. I'd pick the HCG 520M due to modular cables, because you'd want to have as much free space as available in an ITX case anyway.

Anyway if you want to OC with your ITX system then Haswell CPUs aren't good choice, due to the large amount of heat they produce. Right now Asrock Z87E ITX would be the only ITX board that's capable of OC-ing a Haswell CPU. If you want to OC but want to keep the cost low also then you'd better grab an Ivy bridge combo instead, like i5 3570k + ASRock Z77E-ITX.

^+1 and as for the Gfx card, you can get a GTX 760 for $250. should give you much better results than 7950 which is about 300$
