Should i go with the tx550m or cx650m for this build:

Ryzen 2600 oc 4ghz

h60 liquid cooler

Rx580 8gb oc

Rgb case (with 4 ish 120mm fans)

2 hdd and 1 ssd (roughly)

2x 8gb ram

 

will i have headroom with the 550 watt?

the tx550m is a little higher qualitywise. but most single gpu/cpu systems can run on 550 watts on overclock. so both are fine to use

Ideally, neither. Get a higher end 450W instead.

Depending on what's available, Formula 450W, Whisper M 450W or Straight Power 11 450W.

I refuse to believe your entire city or country has two power supplies... Does every citizen have only Corsair CX or Corsair TX in all of their PCs then?

TX550M is better than a CX one and is actually by all means a great power supply.

 

It'll work out fine cheers

Both are quality made units, and will work fine in your system.  The TX has a few notable differences over the CX series such as a quieter fan, uses more reliable 105c Japanese capacitors, and longer warranty.  Should you upgrade to the TX model?  Really depends on exchange policy and budget.
