So I have a Corsair CX550M Bronze right now, but with my 5700 Evoke XT which says 600w is recommended, though everything seems fine as of now and my plane to get a new cpu cooler and cpu i feel like i'll need more. My complete system as of now is GPU: msi 5700xt evoke oc edition | CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 | RAM: 16gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 2666Mhz | 2 Seagate BarraCuda hard drives 1tb\2tb and 1 Samsung Evo SSD | 4 usb devices.

So I'm not much of a PC builder and all these amazon reviews of psu's freak me out, plus my buddy says my corsair psu is fine. So i imma be stuck. lol So i'd love some input from you peoples.

It should be perfectly fine. Although 600W may be the recommended power, it isn't the minimum. As long as your computer is performing normally, it shouldn't be a problem. Also, hurting your GPU by undervolting it is very rare, so you probably don't have to worry about it.
