Hi I am buying parts to build a pc fairly soon and I need some suggestions to what powersupply I need.

CPU: AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 925 2.80Ghz Quad core
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Universal TX3
Motherboard: Asus M4N98TD-EVO
Graphics card: Powercolour 1GB 5770
Hard Drive: Seagate SATA 500gb HDD
Optical Drive: LG Sata Black DVD RW
RAM: 4gb DDR3 Kingston 1333mhz
Case: Antec 200 v2
Power Supply: Coolermaster extreme powerplus RS-600watt
Monitor: Asus 20" VH202T

What powersupply is reccommended for this system and should the 600watt be fine, also will this be a fairly quick system?

A good 500-550W unit would be fine, i wouldnt get the coolermaster, they arent the best quality units, and the RS 600 doesnt have anything that a good PSU has like APFC or 80+ certification. For $6 more after shipping fees you can get a much better PSU, the TP-550 is modular, 80+ bronze and has significantly more power available on the 12V rail where it counts.
