Hello, my friend want to upgrades his gpu, in my country rx 580 costs 160 euros, 15 euros more from rx 570. His psu is a corsair vs550watt with a fx-6300 cpu and iam not sure if this psu is enough to power the fx-6300 and rx 580 without to cause any problems in the future. (Sorry for my english)
Thanks in advance.

It will be fine. The VS power supply is not a very high quality model and is probably better suited for a workstation than a gaming system but it has enough power. If it's more than 4-5 years old I recommend replacing it with a higher quality model.

Try to go for the Corsair CX gray labeled units, as those are higher quality than the VS series PSU's. The EVGA SuperNova G3 is also a great PSU, but can get on the expensive side at times.

As for wattage, 550 is fine unless you are overclocking or any sort.
