use this psu tier list to choose your power supply. the psu's you have mentioned are really bad, and I wouldnt recommend any of them. Whats your budget and specs, which gpu are you upgrading to??

Im upgrading to a gtx 1650 super and I’m looking to spend around $80 on psu
im checking on newegg not sure about you location but
CX450 grey is a decent psu, gold plus bronze rated comes around 65 dollars(price on amazon and pcpartpicker is around $110, i guess a great deal then)
https://www.newegg.com/corsair-cx-series-cx450-450w/p/N82E16817139201?Item=N82E16817139201&Description=psu&cm_re=psu-_-17-139-201-_-Product&quicklink=true

in the future in case you are upgrading your to a higher gpu you will have to upgrade you psu as well but for the 1650, this is perfect.

EDIT: any particular website you want me check on? ill check there too, there are 550w psu in case you want to upgrade cpu or gpu later , going for $80 on newegg, but with shipping im not sure if it will fit in budget.
