Power Supply question

I am about to purchase my gaming and video editing PC and I have to cheap out on the PSU a little bit and I stumbled upon a Corsair CX600M PSU that is 80+Bronze rated.
I was wondering if the PSU could power the following components:
-AsRock 990FX Extreme3 Motherboard
-1x8 gb Kingston HyperX Fury 1866Mhz RAM
-FX 8320 CPU
-Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X OC GPU
-WD Black 1TB HDD
-Asus Optical Drive
-2 Fractal Define R4 Case fans

I just need to be sure if the PSU is enough to power these components,thank you

  1. Get the EVGA 750 B2 instead $89 with a $20 rebate available. Mine is arriving today so I can't answer any personal experience questions yet.

  2. Yes, 600W bronze rated with 80+ efficiency is enough..

    I learned in college that your power supply should be able to handle up to 30% more than what you are using. In other words, buy a power supply slightly greater than your current needs!
