Yes. Your old PSU will be sufficient.
Note, that you GPU requires more power than your CPU.

The 2 major components ( CPU, GPU ) cost around $1100 combined and you want to run them on a low quality $50 pos ?

That PSU is a POS that is only capable of providing 450W on the 12V rails. Calling it a 600W PSU is laughable when over 80% of the power draw from modern PSUs is on the 12V rails.

Your PC probably won't pull more than 350W or so at full load. If you already have the CM EP+ 600W it will likely be sufficient. I personally wouldn't put a $1000 CPU/GPU combo within a mile of that PSU.

On that PSU, no.

The x79 chipset is very demanding power wise

Its not the best 600w PSU. but it will be sufficient.

If you're considering a new PSU:
Antec HCG 620W
SeaSonic S12II 620W
Corsair TX650W V2
OCZ ZS Series 550W

Fans are a couple of watts each, the H60 is a few watts and the DVD is max 25W; most of that is considered part of a standard system. So yes, it is still sufficient. I would still upgrade your PSU to something like the Seasonic M12II-520W.
