550W is enough as long as the PSU is from a quality manufacturer. What is the make and model?

or some more powerful, like...

Hiper ATX 2 680W

Of the power supplies you listed, the Fortron 650W is the one I would recommend. Fortron Source/FSP has been producing quality units for many years. I've heard bad things about the LC Power units.

You shouldn't need to buy a cooler as the CPU should have one included. The motherboard and graphics cards have built in coolers for their chips.
