Need advice on my new MSI based Rig, Z87-G45 & MSI GTX 760 about Power Supply

Hi guys,

Looking for advice on the size of Casing, PSU, and any other things that I might miss on this build. I think 600 W is enough right? I am not planning to crazily overclock this, maybe just a little bit. I am planning to buy the NZXT Phantom 410, which is a mid-tower casing, should be sufficient right?

FYI: I am not planning to use water cooling system. Never tried it and I don't think I will.

The casing:

This is the build that I will make:

Intel i5-4670K 3.4 GHZ Processor
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Mother Board
MSI GTX 760 TwinFrozr 2GB VGA
G.Skill Ripjaws X 16 GB (2 x 8GB) RAM
SAMSUNG 830 128GB SSD
WD 1TB 7200RPM Blue Hard Disk

Mainly for gaming, that's why after reading a lot of forums I decided to save some money and not go with the i7

Any form of help, advice, or comment is appreciated. Thanks
