Hi everyone, I want to swap my current PSU (one that came with the case, which is, probably, in bad shape after 3 years of use) before it kills itself or any of my other components. What I have connected:

FX-6300 Black Edition @ 3.5Ghz
2x4 RAM DDR3
ASUS M5A78L-M plus USB3
A400 SSD
500GB HDD
8GB RX-570
120mm Fan
80mm Fan

I don't plan on OC any of the components nor adding anything extra, save a better cooler for the CPU, eventually. As of right now I have the equivalent of $60USD, but I could probably squeeze an extra 15 given some time, I dont know how doable this is but I'd appreciate all and any help you can give me.

But you don't have much upgrade room. I'd try to go for a 550W or 650W of that model
So, let's say I plan to upgrade to a Ryzen in the future (as well as swapping the mobo and rams), Would I be fine with a CX450 or is the 550 necessary? Also, what would be the limits while playing with any of this PSU's?

You could definitely upgrade to Ryzen with a 450W PSU. I was referring more to GPU upgrades being limited, though there are still some options.

I would get a 550+ watt psu and a minimum rating of 80 percent bronze. The reason why I would get a moree powerful psu because PSU overtime can reduce efficiency overtime.
