Will this build work/what PSU?

Hello!
I was wondering if I could get some help on if this build would work well, and if a 600W PSU is enough. I will be using the PC for recording gaming/gaming, and editing videos.
CPU (I don't plan to overclock) Intel i5 2500
Motherboard Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 LGA1155 Intel Z68
8GB Ram
Case (Can come with power supply)
Video Card: Nvidia GT 520 1GB (Might upgrade later)
Hard drive: 2x 250GB SATA (Will upgrade later)
DVD/CD: HP DVD Writer 740b and IDE DVD DROM 6216 (From old PC)
Monitor: A 1280x1024 one. (Will upgrade later)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

I hope I can get some help!
Thanks in advance,
Adam.
PS: Sorry if this is in the wrong sub category!

    A cheaper i5 2500 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/CPUs/Core+i5+-+Socket+1155/Intel+Core+i5-2500+3.30GHz+%28Sandybridge%29+Socket+LGA1155+Processor+-+Retail+?productId=43217 £159.12 inc. VAT
    Buy a good brand PSU , Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, OCZ. A 550W psu is enough for a future GPU upgrade.Those X-Case Power Supply's are weak.
