[SOLVED] PSU recommendation for $55

I have a friend that needs a PSU to replace a dead unit. It's a non-gaming rig used for working from home, so all it has to power is a core i5-12400 / B660 chipset MB / GT 710 (no PCIe to GPU).

In the past I've purchased the below unit for people who need something to get by, but I thought I'd ask if something else was recommended. I could stetch budget to $60 if necessary.

Seasonic S12III 500 SSR-500GB3
$54.99 USD

S12III is not a great, built by RSY underneath but It's fine for what you need.

HOWEVER, here are better choices at a few different prices:

Corsair CX-F 550w Bronze $45 after rebate, 65 before

Super Flower Leadexx III Bronze 550w $40

Bitfenix Formula Gold 650w $55

NightHawkRMX Thank you for the quick response. I opted for the unit below and ordered it five minutes ago. Had Super Flower not had been available at that price, I would have leaned toward the CX. Thank you once again.
