Hi guys, I'm looking for a PSU for my first PC build. Most calculators say I need around 400-500W, OuterVision and Seasonic say I need 600-650W or more, but I was advised to get a Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W 80+ Gold instead.

Do you think that's enough or should I go for 650W? EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze seems to be right in the middle, but I'm no expert.

 

Please note I don't play games, only heavy photo editing (Photoshop). This is my build:

 

MoBo: ASUS TUF Z390-Plus Gaming Wi-Fi
CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200MHz
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 250GB
GPU: ASUS Phoenix GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB DDR5
Cooler: BeQuite! Dark Rock 4
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox H500
Monitor: BenQ BL2711U (4K)

+ standard mouse and keyboard, 2TB HDD and a graphic tablet.

 

Budget is $100.

 

Thank you! :)

Good 400-450W unit would be enough, considering that only the CPU would be drawing major power,

i.e. Formula Gold

If you plan to add graphics card for rendering or other workload, you might want to consider 550W:

Quality unit is needed, not so much wattage. 450W is enough, but I'd just go for a 550W for a bit of expansion room.

 

Go in PSU Tier List, get a power supply Tier A or above. It is linked in the signature of this post.

Thank you both! Since I have already placed an order for the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W 80+ Gold, but it's not been shipped yet, do you suggest me to cancel it or will it work just fine for my build?

Seasonic is a good PSU, 550W is fine unless you want to do some serious overclocking or SLI some higher-tier GPUs
