Question Could my PSU be causing the crashing issues I encounter in Modern Warfare?

I have always encountered crashing issues in Modern Warfare. I think I've watched almost every youtube video that is supposed to "fix" it and I still have the issue. I've always thought it was my CPU since it was poor compared to my GPU. But I saw a thread here and someone mentioned that any PSU less than 550w could cause crashing issues. My specs are:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000

GPU: MSI Radeon RX 580 8 GB ARMOR OC

PSU: EVGA BR 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX

Well would a 50w difference actually help? And I was thinking about the Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX.

Enough is enough.
Corsair TXM is a good unit.
I have no problem overprovisioning a PSU a bit. Say 20%.
It will allow for a stronger future graphics card upgrade.
It will run cooler, quieter, and more efficiently in the middle third of it's range.
A PSU will only use the wattage demanded of it, regardless of it's max capability.
 
Do you believe if I got this PSU my crashing issues would be solved?
Really, I do not know.

If your problem is with one particular game, I would first look to a game patch for the game.
The support forum may help.

If you can, test with a known good psu of sufficient power.
If you still have problems, the cause is not likely to be the psu.
If you run well, then a psu replacement is in order.
