550-650W is enough for single gpu setup.
Brands: Antec, Coolermaster V series, Corsair (not CX or CS series), Seasonic or XFX
I wouldn't really recommend the H55 cpu cooler. An air cooler would perform better and is much cheaper

The thing is, i'm planning on overclocking and i don't know of any air cooler for that.
Can you maybe recommend one?

The larger Noctua coolers are good for overclocking.

Althou you can get a decent overclock on a FX with just a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo in push/pull

This thing is a monster when it comes to cooling and it's really quiet too: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhd14

For the PSU, this is what I'd recommend (made by Seasonic = one of the best): http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb...

Also, what case will you be using? These huge coolers need a pretty big case.

It's a good case, but the NH-D14 won't fit in it.

It would fit in this however: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
