Need help finding a good PSU with a 60-80 euro budget

I started a build quite some time ago and found out that my power supply was faulty (this also made sense because I bought a ghetto az PSU out of excitement for the build). I don’t want to make the same mistake so I have been looking for a good suitable PSU that I can trust to actually perform. The specs of my build are: 

RAM: 16GB ddr3 

GPU: GTX 1660 Super 

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 

Storage: 60GB SSD, 1T HDD

 

I know upgrading the CPU would be worth it but for now my main goal is to just get the computer up and running. My price range is 60-80 euros (more or less) and I live in Spain so sites from Europe would be great (Coolmod, PCcomponents, Amazon.es etc...)

I really don’t know too much about the qualifications of a PSU except for brand and certificate which is why I am going here for some help:))

You should save up a bit more to get a good RGB power supply from the likes of corsair.

At what point in time would having RGB on a freaking PSU make it "better"?

The ✨Aesthetic✨ which will never be seen, gotta have that inner beauty. Seriously though I’m thinking of going with the  Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply (the reply from Ankh Tech) is that PSU fine for the most part? Again don’t know too much about power supplies so I’m really basing what I do off these replies.

Yah, :P

The MWE bronze or the CXM would be great for you I think :)

Wait the Cooler Master MWE Bronze 550 550W 80 Plus? I was looking at the CXM but it’s out of stock and if I want it shipped in it would be +20€.

Ok so I was looking and I did find it but then I also found one that is white certified and has 700W that is still MWE but it’s cheaper which concerns me. 
 

He the normal one:

Here’s the other one: 

https://www.coolmod.com/cooler-master-mwe-700-white-230v-v2-80-plus-700w-fuente-psu-precio

 

The other site has tended to have better prices so maybe it’s just a deal, should I go for it or just stick with the 550?

If the 700 watt one is 80+ Bronze or better then I'd take the deal :)
