Would a 600w corsair builder series run My New Build

Hi,

This will be my first build, decided to sell the ps4 and get this little lot, bought a pretty cheap case but it had very good reviews, it comes with a ace 750w psu but im not sure there to good so am looking at a more trusty corsair, will it run this ok at 600w or do i go for the 750w, are there any compatability issues, also is the psu that's coming with the case worth taking the risk with (the ace one, could it damage any components if i decided to use it) ??

oh and 1 last thing a bit of a noob question, my partner bought me a full version of windows 8.1 but the site she got it from does not say if it is 64 or 32 bit, i know i need 64 but my question is when i install it will it give me a option to choose. (bit strange but the site had no option or description for either 32 or 64) £100 for the full version

Thanks here's what i have so far going into this build

FX 8350 Black edition
sabertooth 990fx r2
8GB corsair memory possibly going to 16 as i stupidly ordered a single 8gb
gtx 660ti GPU
1 x hdd 1tb
1 x dvd/cd rw drive
in a 4 fan case
