Hi there
I recently ordered the below hardware and I'm not sure if my OEM PSU-002 (nod, 550W) psu will handle it, considering the fact that I will definitely overclock.

Intel i5 2500k
Motherboard ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 USB3
GTX 660 ti
2x8 gb g.skill RAM (1333mhz)

If not, what would you suggest in the 30-70 euro category? (cheapest prefered..)

It's in the right wattage range but I wouldn't trust an OEM PSU for more than the PC it originally powered.

Look at 500-550W PSUs from Corsair, Seasonic etc.
