Just have to make sure. Is any brand of 600W enought to run this:

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Radeon HD 5770
Ripjaws 12800 4GB DDR3-1333
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Motherboard
Noctua NH-U12P cooling
Seagate 1 TB hard disk (7200 rpm )

Yes. Even a 400-450W PSU would handle your system (if you are not thinking about doing cf).
On the other hand, I highly recommend you to go for a quality PSU.

You could run those components on a 380W Antec Earthwatts PSU, assuming you were not planning to add a second graphics card.
Just for the headroom, I'd probably choose the 500W Earthwatts model. Whatever the size, choose a quality unit that has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and is 80+ certified for efficiency. Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, and Enermax are among the more readily available quality brands.
