Question Good power supply to replace my Corsair vs550?

I've ran in this problem that when I play games (mainly League of Legends) my screen turns pixelated and distorted while the speakers make buzzing sounds. After around 10 seconds the program crashes or the pc restarts. All of this started happening after I got a 1080x1920 monitor. I've tried updating drivers but the issue still happens. Someone told me this might be because of my PSU Corsair vs550 (I was told this is a tier 4 psu? which is just a tier above junk) Does it mean that my pc doesn't get enough power? That's why I decided to get a new one.
The problem is: I have no idea what PSU should I get. A lot of people suggest around 550 W which I currently have and some people suggest to go for 750 W so I can have more room to upgrade.
I only learned about pc parts 2 months ago so I have no idea.
Hope you can help me.

Do you have any recommendations for a PSU?

Budget: below 150euro

A good quality 550W unit is enough for most single GPU gaming PC's, at the most go 650W.
