PSU's are so annyoing need help choosing 40-65euro

My build
Cpu intel i5 6500
Gpu msi gtx 1060 6gb oc 1v
Hdd some hitachi 1tb from my old pc
Case corsair spec 01
Ram 2x8 ddr4 2133mhz


i need minimum 430w

a Psu corsair atx xc450m costs 55euro where i live and it has 84 month warranty in a trustworthy warranty shop and it is supposedly tier 3 psu
while another psu i found xfx tx 500w costs 50 euro but has 24 moth warranty but is supposedly tier 2 psu

which one do i get or do i get something different

can someone explain why is the euro /to warranty/ to tier ratio so confusing

if you want to suggest something else suggest from my used sites only 1a.lt fortakas.lt

i think i might overclock gpu but not any other parts.(a few years later)

  1. In this case the Corsair is the better choice. Thats a new model that just came out and is much better than the older CX.

    That particular XFX model is made by Hydance and is not good quality, the XFX TS is the model you want if you were gonna go with that brand.

    i kinda care about is the overclocking ability i would choose the 6 year warranty no doubt for general use but i want to go for one that would be better for overclocking,(less pc burning) im not gonna extreme overclocks though if i will.

    maybe you have some idea what else would be better for simmilar price i can easily go up to 60 euro. but i do want to go for one in those sites.

    or maybe both are same at overclocking no dangers with how much power the wire outputs or any of that kinda confusing stuff?

    You cannot overclock the i5-6500 CPU. You can overclock your GPU but that Corsair PSU is fine for overclocking it.
