It is more than enough. You can run a 7770 on 450w.

Yep that's what he meant, in a way your build wont draw all 600 watts but its good to have headroom for upgrades and overclocking.

Easy. It will run on 450w just fine. 600w is overkill for a 7770. Its just a middle range gpu. If I was you I would switch to a non k CPU and use the extra money to get a 7850 instead.

That's the best 450w psu by far. I have it with that same 7770 and its great.

what kind of water cooling are you going for? Closed loop? No good just grab a high end air cooler at that price that will perform better. If custom then go on right ahead.

Well a good budget cooler that performs very close to the H60 is the Hyper 212.

Take a look at this, the hyper 212 trails the H70, the H60 should be below or above it but very close by. My guess would be below since I own the Kuhler 620 and it is almost equal to the H60.

Edit: According to this foreign review, the Kuhler 620 does perform just a bit worse by .1 of a degree and the hyper 212 evo is equal to it.
