Also note that this psu is actually too good for a ~60$ psu. "Flawless" according to the review. So I don't necessarily need a flawless one. A psu reliable enough not to burn out my PC any day will suffice for me.
"Flawless" meaning no overt flaws that were seen. It's good but not anything that amazing, just a decent group-reg unit done well. If it's around $60, there are better options usually.
2. If I buy a ~550 watt psu I've found 3 possible candidates. XFX core edition 550 W, Seasonic S12II Bronze 520 W and Rosewill Hive 550 W. I don't know much about Rosewill and other two brands are traditiolnally more popular. But three of them are more or less equal right?? I mean in terms of quality??
The XFX is also S12IIB. Rosewill Hive is decent also but has a bit worse capacitors but definitely nothing to be really concerned about.
3. Anything else in 500-550w range u wish to recommend which will be cheaper with more or less equal quality?
Not really. But I'd just buy the Rosewill Capstone 650W for $64 while it's on sale. It's a couple tiers higher in quality than the others mentioned so far.
4.. Does the warranty depend where I buy from? In newegg each product(PSU or not) have specific info on warranty under the 'Details' tab. But in Amazon I cannot see anything written explicitly for many products. So does it matter on the store I buy from too or only the brand of the product?? Some products I'm looking for are cheaper in amazon. Some products I'm looking for are cheaper in amazon than newegg.
The retailer has a return policy for something that's bad soon after purchase, but the product warranty is through the manufacturer. It doesn't matter where you bought it from.
Yes, that's the only 550W PSU XFX has ever sold.

my current psu is making an ANNOYING sround and i think it is causing problems to my video card, problems ive had before with other psu's
Specs are? Causing problems for the video card seems unlikely unless the thing is really bad.
Country? Where are you buying from? What's available? How much are you willing to spend?
