You have a 77W CPU, and maybe 50W more in other things. 127W would be your total draw. And you want to use a 600W PSU??? I would go even smaller if you won't ever get a GPU. The 430W Corsair or the Antec 380W Green. Whichever is cheaper.

yep I'd go for a Corsair CX430 V2 or CX500, I have a much more power 'hungry' system (i5 2500k and 560 ti) and I don't even use 400!
