My pc specs:
CPU: R3 3100
RAM: 16gb
GPU: Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 4gb

PSUs I'm able to buy( recommendation for which is the best from these would be good ty):

TX 550m -80 plus gold
7 year warranty

CX 650m- 80 plus bronze
3 year warranty

Antec Atom G750 700w- 80 plus gold
5 year warranty

CX 550f RGB- 80 plus bronze
5 year warranty

Antec EA550G pro- 80 plus gold
7 year warranty

Antec NE600g Zen- 80 plus gold
5 year warranty

Gamdias Kratos P1 650g rgb- 80 plus gold
3 year warranty

Antec High Current Gamer 650w -80 plus gold
(No warranty specified on site so not sure if there is one though the actual product should have idk)

That's about the best ones that I could find in my price range so any of the best from these should suffice for a few years i guess

There are much better ones on Amazon but problem is the shipping cost to my country which is like $30 or so which is out of the question.

Ty in advance

Antec High Current Gamer 650w -80 plus gold is the best on the list with a seasonic build and 10 year warranty in US. Your country may be different
The TX 550 and the EA550 are the next highest quality units in your list.
Thanks for your response
Will consider it after I verify the HCG warranty

Yes thanks I've seen it. In my country, South Africa, the cheapest is $112. I was just more skeptical about warranty that's all cos I know it's 10 years but the company selling it didn't specify though that shouldn't make much of a difference Idk

3 links in all. First 2 are the HCG at 2 different stores and last is TX
Based on the pictures those should be the 2018 models which from what I have found seems to be a rebadged Seasonic Focus Plus Gold. The older HCG were 80+ Bronze rated units from what I have seen.

The Corsair TX-M is a very good PSU. According to jonnyguru the TX-M sits between the RM & RMx in terms of quality. http://www.jongerow.com/Corsair_PSU_hierarchy/index.html In all if you trust both vendors to be reputable then either PSU will be good. However, if you are at all worried that the reseller might try and pull a fast one on you, I would go with the TX-M to be safe.

Ok thanks for that. Both are reputable sellers but the one which sells the TX doesn't state the warranty which is a bit worrying in terms of returning it back to them. The other site is reputable but they sell from different suppliers but their return policy is good and they state the 10 year warranty on the HCG on their site so I may go with them then if there is little to choose between the 2 and also a 10 year warranty will help if i decide to sell my whole build few years down the line as it's 3 years more than the 7 year on the TX

The Focus Plus Gold itself has a 10 year warranty so odds are higher that the HCG Gold is the newer model.
