Depending on the OS you're using - 32bit or 64bit - the more and fastest is the best line of conduct for nowadays AAA games running on 64bit OSs (Win 7, 8 and 10 for example)
32bit OS can handle a max of 3.5GB
Power supply is never big and tough enough, you'll be using it after several years of upgrades. I prefer the modular type for cleaner appearance and ease of use. 1000 Watts should be a minimum, especially to handle video card(s).

Well, when I bought my new Falcon they advised at least an 800w-850w. I went with 1000w. It's an I7-4770K, 2 optical, a SSD and an HDD, and Titan Black.
You can always adjust the power scheme down in Windows but if it's not enough power, it will play hell on your gaming and other things. I've always preferred more than enough power over less than enough. Especially if you might add that 660 ti or another card in SLI, now or lateron.
Somebody else can weigh in but for me, I'd feel much better with an 800w to 850w if not a 1000w. After subtracting credit for the 600w, it shouldn't cost very much more either.

Would have either went MSI or Gigabyte for a mobo.
But other than it is fine, as said 16GB is a bit over the top, but if you got them for the same price as 8GB then hey ho.
If it is a corsair H80 or H100 you will be fine for cooling, don't have to go extreme on that side of things.
The 600W is good for the entire lot, but if you do plan on using your 660 as the Physx and CUDA card then you will need at least an 800W.

Good move bro. Enjoy that new rig.
Btw, are they letting you pick a new game with that video card? There's deals for that, try and get one. Last I saw was either Far Cry 4, AC Unity or The Crew. It's worth asking about anyway.
