I have vengeance 16gb 3200 mhz ram, radeon rx 570 OC, and ryzen 2600, I'm also looking to overclock CPU and get an H100i corsair. What wattage is cheapest but also very safe?

No such thing as cheap and safe, a good quality 550W, which I'd recommend for that build is going to cost around $60-70 (USD).

No, it's a pretty low end unit. A higher end 550W unit would be much better then any low end 700W+ unit.

What is your max budget for a PSU? If possible I'd highly recommend the Seasonic Focus Gold, it's excellent quality and has a 7 year warranty. The Plus version is fully modular (easier cable management) and has a 10 year warranty. The TXM I posted above is really good as well.
