    Will I need different/more power?

    You'll be fine. I don't expect that system to draw much more than 350w at any given time.

    what is the best cheap min 430W PSU ??

    Nothing wrong. 2018 RMx is simply newer.

    Corsair RM 650 vs Antec EA 750 G Pro

    The RMs are older, but they're still pretty good. If you're talking about the RMx 2018, then definitely. Excellent unit. The new Antec Earthwatts is literally a Seasonic FOCUS, so it's pretty good. If it's RM vs Antec, nothing wrong with either, but I'd get the newer unit: The Antec.

    Which psu should i choose?

    The Toughpower Grand RGB is okay. Poorly priced, however. MWE Gold isn't bad, either. But there are better options. I'm not going to quote the tier list, I'll give you a tiny list of PSUs I recommend. EVGA G2 - G3 is smaller, but this is arguably an overall better unit over the G3. EVGA G3 - Don't worry about the users reeing over the protections. They're set high (and low in some cases), but they work. Corsair RMx 2018 - This and the Whisper M and Formula gold are the best mid-ranged units. Corsair CX450 - If you don't want to spend much, it's very well built for the price. BitFenix Formula Gold - Basically a Whisper M, but it's non-modular BitFenix Whisper M - Excellent all around.

    my seasonic m12ii520b

    The SeaSonic M12II is truly a garbage PSU. You say you have an EVGA bronze, but there are two models that immediately come to mind. The W1 and B1. Both aren't great. If you're aiming to get a new power supply, I would certainly go for a CX450. It's an excellent unit for 45$. I would trust a CX450 with higher end modern components, like Ryzen 5 with even up to a 1070, so it'll certainly handle any R9 card. If you want to keep a PSU for a long while and are willing to spend more, then you have a few more options: BitFenix Formula Gold BitFenix Whisper M EVGA G2 or EVGA G3 Corsair RMx 2018 To answer the wattage question, 600w is certainly not needed. I doubt your system will draw more than 350 watts under load. So a 450-550w unit will be just fine. To add more detail, don't dwell on efficiency or brand. They are not determining factors for PSU quality and performance. Most modern PSUs meet ATX spec in most or all ways, so it's more important to look at build quality (in my opinion). The PSUs I mentioned above meet ATX specification, have working protections (People will ree over the G3's protections being high, but they still work), and are built well.

    Corsair RM850x vs HX750i?

    Both the HX and RMx platforms are near godlike. Only a few power supplies out there that can compete with them.

    EVGA G2 VS G3

    The G2 fails hold up times test (Which can be mitigated through a UPS) and although I haven't confirmed it, it supposedly lacks OTP. The G3 performance wise is excellent. But its OPP is set about the recommended 125% mark and has a high OTP trigger point. But, this is common is semi-passive/hybrid units. Many on this site will recommend against the PSU just for that, despite the real work implications not being as drastic as it seems nor is the chance of someone overloading this unit. Alternatively, you could go for the BitFenix Whisper M or the Corsair RMx. Both are solid units.

    Asus thor

    Hopefully so. Maybe ASUS did some other tweaks, but that’s assuring it’s based on a modern seasonic platform. This PSU is going to cost a premium that’s for sure.

    Help with what cpu cooler to choose?

    Thermalright Macho Rev.b or the Scythe Mugen 5. Both perform like a Noctua NH-D15, but they're only 50$.

    Asus thor

    The PSU itself looks really damn good, but I will wait for a proper review of the unit. If the unit isn't perfect, I don't want it.

    What technology would you create to solve a modern world problem?

    Replicators from Star Trek would solve most problems, including world hunger. A holodeck would be infinite amounts of fun Portable anti-matter reactors (with safe and proper containment) The list can go on...
