Hi guys!

I'm going to build my first gaming rig and these are the components I'll use:

- CPU: i5 3570k (bought) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600MHz (I'll upgrade to 8GB in about a month)

- Video card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 Twin Frozr III (bought) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Hard drives:
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB http://www.amazon.com/WD-Blue-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B00...

I'll also use an old Seagate 160GB SATA II hard drive.

- Optical drive: Samsung DVD burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- PSU: Corsair CX600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Will my system run smoothly with this PSU? Should I get a CX750 instead? I plan to overclock in the future.
I wanted to get a TX650M; sadly, I can't buy it. It is too expensive for me. :( 

Thanks guys!

It will be more than enough. If you wanna go CF in the future, then I can only recommend you the 750 edition.

Also, I think you would be pleased by adding another 4 GB of RAM. Games have begun using more RAM, an example would be Far Cry 3 where it is recommended to have 8 GB of RAM and at least 4 GB.
