Hi Im planning to replace my current GPU which is GTX1050Ti with a RX580 or GTX 1060 (But I prefer 580 so I will focus on it). The problem is i m on a budget build (im currently a student who earns only thru freelance designing) Im currently on a VS450 psu which I just bought in January of this year. This is my current specifications:

 

Proc: Intel core i3-4160

Ram: 2x4gb 1600 ram (no heatsink)

SSD: none

GPU: GTX1050Ti (current)

Monitor: 768 reso generic monitor (planning to add a 1080p monitor or replace it or get a 2 1080p monitor for graphic purposes if I got the money, but will probably add a 1080p alonsige with my 768 first)

HDD: 1x 500gb 7200rpm Seagate, 1x 250gb HDD from my very first pc back in 2008 lol BTW Im planning to replace the 250gb with a 3tb hdd

Fans: 3x Omega Nova 2 rgb fans

UPS: Secure

 

Now I know that there are some PSU calculator sites but upon researching, most of them are not that accurate. So I have to ask in the forums before I do something on my very budget pc.

Yes, that system will only pull less than 300 watts

Yeah you have plenty of wattage. Your CPU is pretty low power. Your PSU isn't very good quality... but it has plenty of wattage.
