So i'm thinking of upgrading my pc and i have a budget of around 500 Euros.
I need to upgrade the Cpu, Gpu , Motherboard, PSU
Here are the parts:
Intel i5-4670 (non-k)
MSI R9 270x HAWK
Gigabyte GA-H87M-D3H
Corsair CX600
What are your suggestions?
Are my picks good?

Motherboard and CPU are both good choices.

GPU is good, depending on the games you play.

I recommend a Seasonic/Xfx PSU. The corsair CX series are rumored to have not the greatest capacitor quality, and they may not age well.

Also the motherboard - I love gigabyte boards, but if that is a Micro-ATX I would personally go with a regular ATX. DS3 or similar H87 is fine.

So what wattage PSU do i need for this upgrade? ~600w? and which ATX board specifically would you recommend that fits this processor? Is there a nvidia equivalent to the r9 270x?

Nvidia equivilant would be the GTX 760.

Here is a motherboard I would recommend, the same thing you had without the micro designation.

Any power supply on this list would be more than adequate (all made by seasonic).

Depending on the games you play, the GTX 770 is a really good buy right now. The 760 is $250, the 770 is $320 and falls in a higher performance bracket. If you play games like battlefield 4 or other demanding games, the GTX 770 can play everything out right now at high/ultra in 1080p.

The 770 is a overclocked, faster, and cooler 680 - the 680 was last year's flagship and still costs around $500.
