Is 'Tier 2' power supply good for what I am going to do with it?

I will buy gaming pc soon. Parts that I will buy: CPU: FX-6300; GPU: R9 380 4GB(OC version); MB: MSI 970 Gaming. I will overclock FX-6300 to ~4.5GHz. I will buy 'tier 2' power supply for my PC, because 'tier 1' power supplies are too expensive for me(I'm looking for 50-65EU PSU). And should i get 550W or 600W PSU?

More about tier power supply good
  1. 550W is fine.
  2. Tier 2 is still very good, no worries there.
    But... On a new build, I would not go with a FX processor for gaming.
    FX cores are slow.
    Many games depend on the performance of a single master thread.
    Few can use more than 2-3 threads.
    FX-6300 has a single thread passmark rating of 1408.

    In your price range, look for a I3-6100, it is a surprisingly good mid range gaming cpu.
    The single thread rating is 2102.

    so corsair psu vs series 550w will be fine?
  4. It's not a good PSU , dead last in terms of quality in the Corsair Lineups.
