Hello, I recently built a simple gaming pc. All of it is new except for my generic PSU which I bought in Sept 2013. Back then my specs were an Athlon II X3, radeon 5670, x1 4GB Ram, x2 Seagate HDD, 20 inch LG20EN43 monitor, Edifier X100. I had no problems with my PSU.

Now I bought new specs, Intel core i3 4130, Radeon R7 260x, 8GB Ram (x2 4GB ram), x2 seagate HDD, Edifier X100, HP Optical Drive, LG 20EN43.

My choices are:
HEC COUGAR SL-600W ATX PSU
HUNTKEY APFC 600W PSU
HUNTKEY GREEN POWER 550W
CROWN EVOLVE 600W PSU

I'm on a budget and availability is also scarce. I'm not gonna overclock or I don't have any special needs like crossfire, dual gpu or anything like that. I just want a good running PC

I wouldn't use any of them PSU's as none of them are trusted at all.
What website are you using and what's your budget for a PSU?

Huntkey are a tier 5 PSU manufacturer they're "NOT RECOMMENDED." - According to http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

Is there anything you can buy from the following manufacturers:-
Seasonic
Corsair
XFX
OCZ
Antec
Rosewill

Or anything I have missed that're tier 1/2 on this link. ( http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx )

HEC COUGAR is also a tier 5 PSU manufacturer.
You should only buy a PSU that is in tier 1 or tier 2 of the list as these are the PSU's that will definitely keep your system working properly.

May I ask, what site are you looking at?

alright. Just remember buy nothing from the tier 4/5. Tier 3 will work if there is nothing tier 1/2.
