Difference between Patriot and G.Skill?

Also, wouldn't be better to get 650W instead of 600W if I plan to overclock? (Just asking)

Thanks for your help!

Ill tried to stay in your budget.
An 600W PSU can handlle with the CPU and GPU overclocked.
The diference between Patriot and G.Skill is just the price.
