Default First gaming build 2

Alright so a month or 2 ago i posted and got a good setup from you guys.
This was supposed to be for christmas but for sum reason they didnt order it and just gave me the money for it so now im gonna start over since prices have probly changed.

So the budget is around 600 dollars so a little over isnt a big deal but i just need the best i can get for the budget.
Im open to all suggestions!
Thx

Can anyone else confirm that? I'm building my first PC and while my processor is a little beefier I'm probably using the same video card. I was planning on going with around 600W, is that overkill?
