this is my fist time building a pc and I would appreciate some input if the parts I picked are compatible, if one part is bottlenecking or overall some helpful insights.
The main use will be gaming and watching movies on a projector.

CPU: Intel i5-4570 (stock cooling good enough?)
Motherboard: Asus B85-Plus
Video Card: Gigabyte HD 7850 OC (GV-R785OC-2GD)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance, 8GB (2x4GB), DDR3-1600
SSD: Kingston SSDNOW V300, 120GB
Case: Corsair Carbide 200R

What kind of power supply can you recommend?
Are additional cooling fans necessary?

If there are better parts at the same price range you can recommend bear in mind I live in Switzerland and get my parts from this website:

Any help is appreciated!

A good 450W PSU is sufficient for that build. If available to you, one of the XFX models would be good. A 430W Antec Earthwatts or 450W Antec VP-450 would also be good choices.
