    Default Need help in choosing a PSU for mid range pc

    Hey everyone, 1st time posting long time lurker. Just like the title says I need help in choosing a reliable PSU and relatively cheap (One that won't die on me after 1 year of use or toast my components lol) No plan to overclock yet but perhaps someday when I learn more about overclocking however that is very far into the future so not really considering overclocking into my PSU requirements. I am no expert but I am guessing that a 450w PSU should be enough but due to limited stocks I am also considering 550w PSUs.

    Specs
    MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk
    i5-10400F
    Palit GTX 1660 Super Gaming Pro
    16gb ddr4 2666mhz Kingston Fury
    3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
    512gb AdataXPG SX8200 Pro M.2 NVME

    Looking around for in stock PSU (that I can afford) in my area (Philippines, Metro Manila) I was able to find several options which I hope you can help me in choosing and thank you in advance for your help.

    FSP 450watts, SFX Pro SFX series, 80+ bronze, full modular

    Corsair 450watts, CV, CV450, 80+ bronze

    Cougar 500watts, VTE 500, 80+ bronze

    Gigabyte P550B, 550 watts, 80+ Bronze

    Corsair 550watts, CV, CV550, 80+ bronze

    Corsair 550watts, CX, CX550M, 80+ bronze, semi modular

    Cooler Master 550watts, MWE 550, 80+ gold

    Seasonic S12III 550watts, 80+ bronze

    Cooler Master 550watts, MWE 550 v2, 80+ bronze

    Best one is the Cooler Master MWE Bronze V2 550W, followed by the Cooler Master MWE Gold 550W and the Corsair CX550M in my opinion. All others aren't interesting for a PC like this.

    The only ones I would get are the CX, MWE Bronze and maybe the S12iii (because it uses a dual mag amp design)
