You're not going to find a PSU better than that one for under $100

Microsoft is ending support for W7 at the end of this year (Jan. 2020). If you're still on W7, consider switching to W10 soon.

Most PSUs above $50 are a lot better. A lot under $50 are also a lot better

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

The NEXGold is Corsair VS tier (maybe CX tier)... The fuck are you getting that from?

 

Anyway, it should work but it's not a really good power supply. If you have an expensive rig or something, I would suggest going for the RM650x or prime ultra 650w from seasonic (efficiency doesn't matter; it's a 4% difference for much more money).

my pc specs are i7800k,16gb ram,gtx1080 ssd

I would upgrade it to a SeaSonic Prime Ultra Gold 650W then. 

It's available from B&H for 114.99$ with a 20$ mail in rebate, from SuperBiiz for 109.99$ and from Amazon for 114.99$.

It might seem like much, but the Prime Ultra is singlehandedly one of the best PSUs you can get, period. 

 

Here's some tips and facts about the PSU I'm recommending you:

  • The Prime Ultra Gold is fully modular. DO NOT throw out the included cables. Keep any cables you don't use in the PSU's original box.
  • 650W is more than enough for your build.
  • The Prime Ultra series has a ten year warranty and is comparable to a Corsair AXi (except for efficiency. If you want a power supply nearly identical to the AXi, get a Prime Ultra Titanium instead).
