The GX-lite isn't rated 80 plus and has some iffy reviews. I'd go with the Corsair CX600. But I don't thing your rig will need 600W.
Try out for the Xfx core 550W, it's price/performance is great should do you.

Overkill for that rig. The Geforce GT 520 isn't exactly a power hog (TDP = 29W lol).

The CX600V2 will be the best choice.

Any reason why you want a 600W PSU? Are you planning on upgrading a GPU?

If the OP upgrades than its certainly worthwhile. Better than CX 600 anyway.

It's definitely better than the CX600, but the CX600 is enough unless you want SLI/Crossfire. And it's (probably) cheaper.
