You don't need to spend so much. Even a 750w is sufficient for that, with enough headroom to upgrade...

Why do you think you need to replace your current psu?
It is an excellent unit and more than strong enough for your graphics card,
The unit you picked is also an excellent one.
I'm having issues with getting 3 displays (1 TV & 2 monitors)
I can get 3 displays to work but I can't get HDR to work on my TV.

Used to work fine but I recently replaced my motherboard, processor, & cooler & it doesn't work anymore.
I'm being told to replace the PSU since it's ~11 years old.

BTW, will the Corsair RM850x fit in my Fractal Design Define R5 ATX Tower Case?

I do not see your display issues as being connected to the psu.
The Corsair rm850x is a standard atx psu that should fit no problem.
What do you think the problem is?
I bought new cables & used different port combinations on my video card & still can't get it to work.
Reinstalled windows & video card drivers as well.
 
Either a problem with your GPU, the video out ports on your GPU or the TV itself being stubborn. There's no way those problems are linked to your PSU, though the 11 year age of your current PSU is more than good enough a reason in itself to replace it ASAP.

Thing is GPU works fine with my old setup. Same with TV o_O
Either way, I will upgrade PSU first since everyone is recommending it.
BTW, you mentioned to upgrade ASAP, what are the risks if I don't?
 
You don't have to upgrade, but you do need to replace. 750 watts is fine in most cases but with the newer graphics cards pulling (almost) half or even more, sometimes 750 watts isn't enough. 850 watts could give you that little bit more headroom. The age of your current PSU is the main reason to replace ASAP.
