I am looking at a Corsair 750w http://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-cx-series-modular-c...

750W is a bit much for what you have, unless you want to put in another GPU later. If not, then a 600W would suffice.

First of all don't choose CX power supplies, those are lower quality psu, and you definately don't need 750W i would go with 600 -650W that would be even enough for oveclocking.

if not the CX power supplies(im planniing on getting a cx600) then what would you reccomend?

This is the build you should get. $550 after rebates and $600 before rebates.

+ 6 Core FX 6300 CPU.
+ Asrock Extreme 4 Motheboard with good overclocking potential and nice features.
+ AMD 7950 is one of the best GPU's currently and is third most powerful only after the Titan (and Nvidia 780) and the 280x (or the 770).

+ 8GB RAM is ample for gaming.
+ 1TB HDD space is ample for storing just about anything a gamer needs.
+ NZXT Source 210, neat and easy to work case from NZXT, a well known case manufacturer.

Oops.. Sorry guys for the confusion... :D .

But anyways, if you are building a new rig, then consider the option that I suggested instead.
