My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

I suggest the SeaSonic S12III since it's a good budget PSU and has 2 6+2 PCIe cables that you probably need for your 970, though if you want to reuse your PSU in a future build with higher end parts, the Seasonic Focus GX 550w, or if you are more budget limited, the Seasonic Core GC/GM 550-650w would work too.

Do you have a site we can visit ?

Well you won't fine anything that's cheap but good enough and won't explode.

Stretch your budget a bit or wait.

As for something around the 50ish€ range to 60ish that won't explode 

CV550

Vs550 

MWE White V2 

And the best out of all of these 

Cx550.

*MWE white 80+ V2

 

And add the system power 9 400w (or higher)

 

Those can be had cheap in the UK at least.

 

Irish retailers would be helpful

You can get a Seasonic S12III for very slightly cheaper (about 60 euro), but really I'd take the System Power 9 over it.

If you are in countries where there are variants of the System power 9. Like System power U9.

 

You might be able to get a system Power B9. Which is the unpainted bulk variant for slightly cheaper.
