Planning on buying rx 580, but I realised I need a better psu (currently have thermaltake litepower 550W).
my current specs:
asus h110m-k d3
intel i5 6600k
geforce gtx 1050ti
2x4gb ddr3 1660mhz
ssd 250gb
What are your recommendations, please let it be under 100 dollars im on a budget.
 
My personal picks going from lowest price to higher price (From good, to excellent quality)
The Corsair CX550M/CX650M (Semi modular)
The Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550 (Modular) (Wait for sale using CamelCamelCamel or Froogle)
The Corsair TX550M (Modular) (Wait for sale using CamelCamelCamel or Froogle) (Occassionally under $100)

If you plan on powering a lot of conventional HDD (Spinning platter mechanical ones) I would aim for a 650 myself.

Edit: Holy cow I just checking pricing. Everybody seems to be out of stock of everything. The global pandemic must be really hitting hard on component supply. Just a year ago I purchased a Seasonic Focus + 850 Watt Platinum for $135 after rebate + free $20 steam card. (Which was a banging sale price, but man...pricing is just inane right now )

Can you give me some psu's that are equivalent to the corsair txm 650W but from a different brand, so I can compare the prices in my market. I'm from serbia so the PSU's are more expensive than other countries.
Also what is the difference from the txm 550W and txm 650W besides the 100 wats?
Here I found the price for the txm https://www.kupujemprodajem.com/kompjuteri-desktop/napajanja/corsair-tx550m-tx650m-tx750m-tx850m-tx-series-modular-gold/oglas/71472859

The Seasonic GX and GM are good power supplies same with the EVGA G2. As far as wattage a 550 will be enough for your system but anymore I would recommend a 650 for future upgrades.
