So my computer has been freezing and restarting, and I think the culprit is the power supply, so I'm looking for a good power supply (preferably) under $80. I previously had the Corsair CX430w, can I rely on a CX600w? Maybe something else? My PC specs are below.

Best you could get for that price (after rebate):

Total: $79.99
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Another would be the new CXM line for a little less (this has a $20 rebate available, but not applied to the price below to give you a sense of up-front-cost):

Power Supply: Corsair CXM 550W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $69.99
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

The CXM line is a drastic improvement over the old CX, and honestly would be a very good choice for a quailty budget PSU in your price range.
