Hey, for my build I'm planning to get a 600W PSU. Is it enough or should I get more. I don't want to use more than €90/$90 dollars on the PSU.

Specs:
Intel Core i7 3770
Asrock z77 Pro4-m
4GB, Corsair Vengeance
128GB, Crucial M4
2TB, Seagate Barracuda
Asus HD7850 DC2

I'm also planning to put some LED case fans and are there any recommendations for quiet CPU coolers?

Thanks

For $90 you can get the Corsair TX650V2

Its a very high quality unit & will provide enough power to your rig & will also be sufficient for two 7850s if you plan to crossfire in the future.

As for the CPU cooler, the stock cooler should be silent enough & it cools well too.

Edit: If you're looking for a cheaper PSU, then get the Seasonic M12II 520W

Again, A very high quality unit, quite sufficient for you rig & its modular as well.

600W is plenty. That system shouldn't pull any more than 300W.

CPU cooler - The stock cooler is fine in the vast majority of instances. You will only need an aftermarket cooler if you bought an OEM cpu, plan to overclock, or have a case with airflow restrictions/problems.
