Smile Need help choosing the PSU

Hi everyone, i finished planning for my new build (xfx Rx 580 - Ryzen 2600 - 1TB - 8gb ddr4 (will add the 2nd 8gb stick next month) )

I live in Egypt (We use 220V) and i am torn between some choices:

1- XFX TS Series 650W Bronze
2- Seasonic S12II 500W Bronze
3- Thermaltake Smart SE 630w

The seasonic and the XFX have great scores review here on Guru (9.7 and 9), but i read some comments that its really old now, and was wondering if there would be newer better options?

I have no interest in OCing but i may upgrade the gpu 2 or 3 years later if a better card is out..

This is the site i am shopping from:

If the price listing is right, Bitfenix Formula Gold 650w is the best choice for your budget.

actually yea, the prices are correct, thats what surprised me the most, this PSU, which is 600W and gold and is in the "A" category of those "Tier lists" and its cheaper than most of the bad ones, the only reason i didn't consider it was that i never heard of this brand name before (It's page on amazon and newegg have literally 0 reviews) and wanted to stick with a more familiar name like Seasnoic or XFX

Bitfenix Formula Gold.
Well, 650W is overkill but there’s no lower wattage model...
