At minimum I would suggest something like one of these two

I would not recommend that especially when you could get something as good as a bitfenix formula gold for cheaper.

cheaper corsair power supplies are iffy imo. I'd recommend the seasonic power supply I have, its $60 but has a mail in rebate that has SeaSonic send you back $15, so the final price is $44.99.

Theres a power supply tier list here on the forums, the VS550 isn't too high on the list

the one I suggested is overkill, even for my system. Better safe than sorry though, its also modular meaning you can unplug the cables you don't need to use in the system, reducing clutter

Pure Power 10 400W for €51. If you can't afford that, you downgrade something else in your system.

There's no reason at all to get the CXM in Germany. The Vengeance is the German market version of the CXM, and it's just better, for the same price. It has a better fan and multi rail.

M12ii 620w isn't THAT much better than a VS. I'd still recommend a group regulated unit like the CX/CXM grey sticker, pure power 10, or masterwatt (non lite) instead

The cxm is a good buy, it just wasn't in my head I guess. The newer cxm models are better than the old ones, right?

Yes, by a lot. Funnily enough electrically wise the new CXs are better than the CXMs too :D

The S12/M12 II Lack protections, so it doesn't take that much to be better than them. The VS should have more, and working protections, so they're arguably better than the S12/M12 II.

The other PSUs you mentioned are DC-DC.

I believe electrical performance wise the s12ii/m12ii are better though, no? I just remember s12ii/m12ii being towards the better end of group regulated psus when it comes to electrical performance

Yes, probably. They're still group regulated, though. So a high load on the 12V rail and close to no load on the 5V rail can cause it to go out of spec. And that sort of load is exactly what happens in any modern PC. 

Lacking UVP on the 12V rail prevents it from shutting down under such a scenario.

First $40 is around 35€.

For that money, you can't even get a be quiet System Power 9 with 400W wich is the cheapest decent PSU.

Xilence Performance A+ is more than taht and I wouldn't go lower than that

No, its not electrically better.

 

You remember this?
https://www.computerbase.de/2017-07/cooler-master-cougar-xfx-zalman-netzteil-test/

 

The Cougar VTX450 has better voltage Regulation than Seasonic S12II variant. But it gets worse. Way worse...

 

https://www.computerbase.de/2015-10/350-watt-netzteil-test-lc-power-xilence-sea-sonic-super-flower/6/

 

Voltage regulation of the S12II Bronze is comparable to the cheapest bunch of PSU...
