Hi guys! I'm having an issue with my build. I can't decide on which PSU should I get for first custom build:

- Mother GA-A320M-S2H
- Ryzen 5 2600 3.9GHz + Wraith Stealth Cooler
- 1x16GB 3000 Corsair Vengeance LPX Black
- SSD 120GB WD M.2 Green Serie Gen3 6Gb/s
- 2GB 7200RPM WD Caviar Blue
- Asrock RX 580 8GB OC Phantom Gaming D
- DVD-RW Unit
- Case CorsairCarbide SPEC-03 Black Red Led

Should I get a 550W, 600W or higher (certified FYI)? I don't intend to change anything drastically for the next year, at least.

EDIT: I'm currently shopping at www.compragamer.com, if it helps.
 
A good 550 watt PSU will be enough. I suggest a quality PSU from EVGA, Corsair or Seasonic.

Here is a decent budget option:

This is one of the better PSU's on the market. They have a decent sale going on the 650 watt and it is cheaper at the moment than the 550 watt. There is no problem going with a higher PSU than you need as your system will still use the same power. Buy higher wattage PSUs tend to cost more.
