This is the PC I'm going to be building in a couple weeks. I'm considering changing the CPU as I have gotten a slightly increased budget to around £530-£540 (meaning I have 80-90 for a CPU) I was wondering what the best RYZEN Cpu I could get which is better than the r3 1200 and paired best with an rx 570.

EDIT: I've already bought the SSD So Don't suggest a change for that.

Yes but for how little the 550W is now - as it's only £5 above the 450W CX, that covers you for any future upgrades for at least the next 5 years too.
I initially only put 450W on mine too, but then after seeing Lutfij show the CX that low, it made sense so edited it in.
Or you could just save the £5 and get the 450W. Perfectly fine.

I found a 1500x for about £20 more than the r3 1200 at £60, would you say its worth the extra £20 for it?

For £20 probably not, simply because the 1500X isn't significantly better than the 1200. Especially not gaming.
The 2600 is much better though.
will a 2600 bottleneck an rx 570? and i dont really wanna upgrade the gpu to the 580 as then i need a better psu
