I bought an Corsair CX550M, but im aware that it wont be enough.
MBO: ASRock H370 Pro4
CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F (Turbo mode)
COOL: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports DUO
RAM: 2x4GB DDR4 2666MHZ C15
GPU: Havent bought yet. Im choosing between:
  1. RX580 Nitro+ Special Edition
  2. 1070 ti
  3. 1060 6GB
But keep in mind that i will overclock the card that i will get.
Im thinking about swapping the psu with CX750M or maybe:
  1. Seasonic Core 650W (SSR-650LC) 80+ Gold
    [*]Seasonic FOCUS Plus 650W Gold (SSR-650FX)


 
Some thoughts for you:

Graphics card vendors bin their chips and use the better ones in factory overclocked versions
that they can sell for more. You may be able to OC more, but then again, perhaps not.
They try to differentiate by adding cosmetics and fancy coolers which also sell for more.
I do think you get fair value from a modest factory overclocked card.
If you need more performance, they buy a higher tier card in the first place.

Among the cards you listed, the GTX1060 6gb should run on your 550w psu.

The seasonic focus 650w would be an outstanding upgrade.

I might suggest looking at the GTX1660 in the ti, normal, or super variants.
which are stronger than any of them, priced reasonably.
They are low power and will run on a single 8 pin aux power.

For other gpu options, this chart may be helpful:

In my country this card isnt very cheap. Im gona buy used card. As far as i see you tell me that my psu 550w will be enough?
 
Older Corsair CXM green units are not considered as reliable as newer grey units.
I would first opt for the GTX1060 6gb card.
Normally it will use only one 6 pin aux power lead.

Second choice would be the The GTX1070ti which requires typically a single 8 pin power cable.

Last would be the RX580 card which needs both a 6 and 8 pin power cable.
For that card, I would also upgrade the psu.

If any of the cards are factory overclocked, like the RX580, they may need even more power.
