Hey, I'm wondering whether or not a 600W PSU will be enough to run a GTX 670.

Here's the PSU:
Corsair Builder Series CX600 600 watt 80 Plus Certified Power Supply Compatible with Intel and AMD Platforms ATX 700 CMPSU-600CXV2

From my research in building my own PC featuring a GTX 670, 600w should be plenty assuming you are not overloaded on other components. I have an i5 3570k with a Gigabyte GTX 670 and I believe I had heard that the recommended wattage for my system was about 550w. If you plan on going SLI in the future, you probably will need to upgrade that PSU some, so factor that into your decision on your PSU purchase (I believe I got a 750w PSU, corsair branded and modular (be sure to look into whether it is modular or not, if you don't have a huge case or one that has convenient cable management features you may want to go with modular) and was told that it would be satisfactory for a future dual 670 setup).

Ok, I don't plan on going SLI, so I'll stick with the 600W. Thanks, Will
