Help Looking for a PSU

I need some help picking an appropriate PSU for my friend's budget gamin build (non-overclock). I also would like it to be able to handle upgrades to other components. Thinking about the 600B or the 750B2, but I'm open to suggestions.

Requirements:

At least 600W

Tier 3 or above (I know there are different lists)

Under $80

The B2 is substantially better than the B. Get the unit you have listed in that build.

Why do you want more than 600W? This whole setup will hardly reach anything more than 230W under load.

Want it to be able to handle upgrades. Potentially a beefy gpu + overclocked cpu.
