I'm looking to upgrade my PSU in my current build for fear it is on the brink of failing. My specs are below.

PCPartPicker Part List: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/NGkyMc

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-A320M-H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
Storage: Kingston A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6 GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ Video Card
Case: CiT F3 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider Plus 700 W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

The system draws between 400 - 450W under load according to PCPartPicker...
So I was looking at the Corsair TX550M 550W Semi-Modular 80+ Gold PSU

Any thoughts? Thanks.

For ~£70 that is a good PSU. For a lot of systems 550W is plenty as well.
