So my specs are.
Fx6100 (cpu)
Rx 580 4 gb gigabyte (video)
970A-G43 (motherboard)
And 12 gb ram ddr3


Here is a list of pcu's I found in my budget range in a second hand place. I didn't have enough money for a better one.

Here is the list: MS-Tech MS-N550-VAL - 550W

Zalman zm600 LX

Sl 700W (switching power supply)

Sursa OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W

Mars Gaming MPII550 85+

Corsair vx550W

Argus Apx 620W 80Plus

Spire Jewel SP-ATX-650WTN-PFC

I have a OCZ modxstream pro 600w and it handles a haswell i5 and an rx 470 fantastically, and before that it was a mild OC 8120 with a gtx 950 . The corsair VS seems to be the newest followed by the antec, and both are fairly well known, but if the OCZ is a decent price its honestly what I'd go for. Quick googling says it got a decent review on hardwaresecrets even if it is a bit older. With an FX cpu you don't have to worry about the sleep state certification or whatever either haswell started..

I would hold off.

The PSU is the lifeblood of your system. A good one will provide clean, stable power to your components, and, if something goes wrong, will protect your components.

A bad one will provide irregular power, aging your components prematurely. If something goes wrong, a bad one will possibly take out other components with it. A bad one can also cause a fire when it fails.

How much do you value your CPU, motherboard, video card, etc? That's what you should be asking when deciding on a PSU.

Read up the first link in my sig.

CX600 sounds like one of the older (pre-2017) models and should be avoided. 550 is MORE than enough for your system, and the G3 is definitely a higher quality PSU and has a longer warranty than the CX.

You can go confidently with the G3 550W.
