Alright, Below are the compnents I am running.

-AMD FX 8350 4GHz
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
-Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
-Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (And for some reason in My Bios it has it set to 1439 how can I switch it back to 1600?)
-Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
-Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 1GB Video Card (The Overclock edition)
-Raidmax Helios ATX-819WB ATX Mid Tower Case (Ive got one front fan off and the top fan off) - (Why? They stopped working)
-Asus DVDE818A7T/BLK/B/GEN CD Reader, DVD Writer

I do plan to play video games, and stream at the same time, I have all pieces needed for PC to work, but the PSU I have, Raidmax TR2 500W sucks so bad, I get the random shut downs (Without a shutdown screen) so please help me pick a new PSU $60 is all I have.

for 60$ youd be hard pressed for a decent psu. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That has no bad reviews its in your budget should work fine. plus blue led

Well My case is Raidmax, and 2 out of 4 of the Fans have already failed, and im not to sure if I would want to go with one of their power supplies because of how the case is.

I would skip the Raidmax psu's. Actually the only case manufacturers that I would recommend their psu's are Antec and Corsair.

I was just looking online at the Reviews of the PSU that you linked, and it looks very good, but from what I read, I will not get a warranty if I dont sign up on the website, and that the website is very bad. Im not to sure right now, but I do know for sure that as for now the XFX is my choice, Im still researching and looking around though, but thank you for the suggestion

Another great manufacturer is Super Flower.
