About 600Watts from a good maker: Antec, Corsair, Silverstone, Seasonic, XFX, Rosewill (Capstone series) or FSP with dual 6+2 pin (or dual 8 pin) PCI-E leads will be more than enough, 750Watts with quad PCI-E leads if you plan on going SLI later.
Really don't think you'll need an aftermarket cooler, even the reference cooler can do the job well enough at stock speeds and if the GTX760 has a dual fan cooler one won't be needed at all.
Bear in mind you'll invalidate the warranty by swapping coolers.
I'd recommend the Gelid Icy Vision in an instant, it's cheap and VERY effective but you'll need to get a fan speed controller for it-out of the box the only way to control the fan speed is to plug it into a motherboard header and control the speed through the BIOS.

Any quality 500+ watt power supply should handle the system without issues.

You have a 125 watt cpu. Lets add 150 for good measure.
GTX 760 @ 170 watts. Lets add 200 for good measure.
Motherboard and memory, lets go 75 watts.(should not take much power to be honest)
Hard drives average about 10 watts. lets ad 15.

Giving an overestimate of 440 watts. Truth be told the system will not use this much power, but running a power supply to close to the max is not great anyway.

The Hyper 212 is the goto aftermarket cooler as long as it fits the case.

Yes, it is more than enough. I just simply selected 620w PSU in case for future upgrades, if you will be buying much power hungry GPU in the future. Better to have now more wattage, although it is not needed at the moment now, than to buy new one latter.

Your PSU might be not enough. Still you got the might FX 8350, i don't think you need to overclock it for now. FX 8350 paired with GTX 760 is well enough for today's games to be played at 1080p on high resolutions.

Corsair's CX units ( or VS and CS in some parts of Asia and Europe) use low quality capacitors which will wear and heat up fast. The CX unit may fail on you sooner than latter, especially if you are going to overclock.
I have checked almost all PSU form the web site that you have provided, and the SeaSonic one is the best for your budget.

It is an ECO series. Again i don't want to sound like PSU nerd, it will do the job more than fine, just don't overclock :) 
Don't save money on the PSU it is one of the most important parts of your system, if PSU fails, it may destroy all of your parts.
