It's a lot cheaper to spend a little money up front than to spend a lot on a new PSU and MOBO or RAM when it blows and takes them with it.
You have been lucky if you managed in the past with a crappy PSU, but don't push your luck.
OCZ or Corsair are the best PSUs on the market at present and if you can afford it buy one of them.

It's not necessary to spend $150 to $200 to get a very solid power supply. I want to say I spent about $120 on my modular Corsair...but getting the modular one with fewer wires was a real priority for me. Without going modular, I would have been around $90.

Yes, 600W should be fine if it is a decent manufacture.
