Currently, I am running an ASUS STRIX NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 TI non OC and an Intel Core i3 9100f. Will be upgrading to a GTX 1070 and a Core i5 9600k in 2 months. I have been searching all day for a PSU that is in tier B, that costs $90 USD or under. I need at least a 600 Watt Power Supply, but, I cannot find one for under $120 USD. I am looking to buy from Newegg or a name brand website, not from Amazon, due to their my bad history with them. Could someone please give me some recommendations?

If you are okay with bronze, these EVGA B5's are on sale and are B tier and 5 year warranty https://www.newegg.com/evga-750-b5-220-b5-0750-v1-750w/p/N82E16817438165?Item=N82E16817438165

If you keep an eye on sales usually at least once a week a 750w gold A tier unit will go on sale for $90 or so. I got the Superflower Leadex III 750w 3 weeks ago for $90.

Personally I would try to get a 750 just for the extra headroom and possible upgrades in the future.

Edit: Found a Seasonic A tier for $80 after $10 rebate https://www.newegg.com/seasonic-focus-750-gold-ssr-750fm-750w/p/N82E16817151201
