Have a Seasonic M12II 520 watt power supply but don't you guys think I should have a 6oo watt PSU?

Parts compatible. Sweet build !
PSU is good, but since you gonna be overclocking, to be on a safe side, get 550W PSU.
You're good to go!

How much ram are you going for?

I haven't built a PC in about a year so I'm not up to date on hardware but if you want to maximize your performance with games I would spend exponentially more on the GPU in relation to the CPU.

It's been said (and reinforced by most benchmarks with the exception of RTS') that the GPU is responsible for most games' fps rates, and CPU performance is secondary. With modern CPU's being blazing fast you should be fine with whatever quad core you go for- so if I were you I'd consider downgrading the CPU and upgrading GPU if you want to maximize gaming performance.

Of course, if you want a more balanced set up (although frankly for most purposes any quad core is essentially overkill- unless you're a heavy photoshop user/ converting music types often or other encoding type work) spending approximately the same makes sense.

Just my two cents! Last PC I built I spent about $200 on the CPU and $400 on the GPU and still kept my build price under $1000.

Looks like a good build though!
