I was wondering if the CX600 by Corsair (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) would be enough to power this system -

ASRock Z77 extreme4
i5 3570k (will probably overclock to around 4.0 in the future)
8gb Vengeance RAM
gtx 670 FTW Signature 2 -OR- gtx 660 FTW Signature 2

Please let me know if this is enough to power the 670 even with overclocking. I may spring for the 660 anyway though, so that could get rid of that problem.

I'm also open to PSU recommendations.

As long as it has 30A on the rail it's fine, that psu has 46A, it's plenty for the cards in question.
A 500W psu will do for the 670 gtx signature 2, see here : http://tpucdn.com/reviews/EVGA/GTX_670_FTW_Signature_2/...
As for the quality there're other psus out there.

The cx600 has plenty watts/amps. I think djangoringo is hinting that with
the quality of your rig you might want to step up from budget/opening
price point PSU to something a little higher up the food chain
