Would the Corsair 520 be enough to heavily OC that system? Or would it be a better bet to go with the Corsair 620 or maybe the Xclio 650 GreatPower?

That Corsair 520HX is more than enough for that budget system. Even under heavy overclock. I would probably get the SeaSonic 550w though, over the 520HX, because it's the same price, not considering the rebate.

Why is it I see alot of folks recommending 600+ Watt PSUs than for system builds that do not look much more power intensive than this budget build? Still learning this PSU stuff which is why I am asking.

Some like the idea, of having a PSU that has room for future upgrades, rather than buying another power supply.

You need to add a better power supply.
