I am looking to change my PSU is 500w and I think that's the problem to my computer freezing so I'm going to order a new PSU but need everyone's advice or at least someone who knows what there doing.
My PC components are:

-BitFenix Comrade Midi-Tower

-1TB Seagate Barracuda SATA III Hard Drive

-24x LiteOn Internal DVD-RW Drive

-AMD (Piledriver) FX-6300 3.50GHz (4.10GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 6-Core Processor

-8GB (2x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz CL9 DDR3

-Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Dual-X Boost OC AMD Graphics Card 2GB Graphics Card

-Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P AMD Socket AM3+ Motherboard

Those are my components and I feel like I would like to have a 750w PSU but I don't know which one would fit and power it all.
I have been looking at a ;750W Corsair RM Series 80PLUS Gold Modular Power Supply
But I don't know whether it'll fit and power everything as I'm not very good with Computers.

I doubt that your psu is causing freezing. Your psu should be fine as it is. The corsair psu you have selected should work fine.

That graphics card requires a 500W power supply.  Unless your current PSU is poorly made, old, or defective, it should be able to power that system.
