I also have 16GB DDR3 RAM, DVD-R, 250GB Samsung 840, and ASRock Extreme 4. I currently have a 600CX, but I've been hearing that it's either just barely good enough or not adequate. What type of power supply would you recommend that's good, about the right amount of power for this set up that's on sale? Or is the 600CX fine after all?

the Corsair CX600 is not too bad. It's enough for you, but if you would like an upgrade, the Seasonic M12II 620 watts would be fantastic

I assmue you are taling about the CX builder sereis from Corsair. These are quality power supplies. I am using a CX750M and I too am using a 3570k but my graphics card is a PNY GTX 770 which has about the same TDP as the reference GTX 780. So I recently Learned never to cheap out on your PSU. So despite the fact that I am using a CX750M I will upgrade my PSU to either a HX1050,850 or AX860 or a seasonic X850( can't remeber the name) The at the NVidia site they recommend a minimum 600w PSU with a 42a or greater on the 12v rail. whch think hte CX600 meets this criteria. It would be wise to either get the CX750M or a higher quality 650w PSU. LIke something with 80 plus gold. this more for making sure your compenets are getting the cleanest possible power. It is good to have that extra oomph or wattage in a PSU jut in case you need it later or mostly because power supplies operate better at between 60%-80% load. I hope this will help you quest for a good setup

Nvidia always states what's more than required in case you buy a lousy PSU that doesn't actually provide what it's supposed to, so the M12II 620 would fit the bill. Seasonic makes the best PSUs

I'm considering the CX750M since it's reasonably priced now. Looking for some gold options, too. Not sure if the extra for the TX is worth it.
