New low budget PSU need advice...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello there! greetings from tacoland ?

I have few options to replace my 7y old Antec 520w HCG high current gamer psu, it still works with no problems whatsoever but ... this psu is very old,  ima get gtx 1650 super or anything with 6pin connector then a better CPU in the next months so i don't wanna push it any further with more hardware, it might work for few extra years but i think it's time to replace it with something equal or better.

Here you don't have too much to choose from, local stores suck, at best you find some evga 500w white psu or rebranded chinese psu's like 700w with 15a on 12v. ? so my only options are online stores and this is what i've found so far that suits my budget. No Fractal, no Rosewill, BeQuiet or more brands why is that? idk those are very rare, couldn't find any available, finally most online stores sell only refurbished corsair psu's, nothing brand new and i don't trust refurbished stuff plus only 1y warranty with corsair and few months with the store? that sucks, btw thanks GoldenLag for the help in my previous post.
 

According to PSU tier list 4.0:


- EVGA 550w 550 Supernova G3 (Tier D+) (fully modular) - part number/id: 220-G3-0550-Y1

 

- EVGA 600w 600BR 80 bronze (Tier C) - part number/id: BR-0600-K1
- EVGA 600w 600BQ 80 bronze (Tier C) - part number/id: 110-BQ-0600-K1
- EVGA 700w 700BR 80 bronze (Tier C) - part number/id: 100-BR-0700-K1
- Gigabyte 700w B700H 80 bronze (Tier C) (semi-modular) - part number/id: GP-B700H 


- Cooler Master 600w MWE 80 bronce (Tier B)- part number/id: MPX-6001-ACAAB-US

Can't find any of these in psu tier list:
- EVGA 600w 600GD 80 Gold - (maybe tier B) part number/id: 100-GD-0600-V1 
- Cooler Master 650w MasterWatt 80 Bronze (semi-modular) - part number/id: MPX-6501-AMAAB-US
- Cooler Master 750w MasterWatt 80 Bronze (semi-modular) - part number/id: MPX-7501-AMAAB-US

so if you had to choose one of the above which one would it be? imo i like the EVGA 600w GD 80 gold and Gigabyte B700H, even Cooler Master MWE 600w.

My potato specs? thx in advance?

You shouldn't go higher than 400W for that PC. 500W max with the upgrades in mind. As it currently stands, even a quality 300W unit can power everything no sweat. The 750ti needs like 3 and a half watts.

Its in there, Tier B. 

 

That one is fine to pick up. 

 

Edit: the G3 is also fine. Tho it has overload issues worth avoiding.

He can got higher. Tho there wouldnt be any reason to other than having the possibility to upgrade in the future to something with a higher powerdraw.

That is true, the issue is finding anything worth picking up at that wattage.

500w might be considered a little low considering certain hardware on the market. While it should power most configurations. 

 

Also your wording sounded as if there was a reason not to go higher. Whicj outside of singlerail >750w really isnt a thing.

I was going to ask about why i shouldn't go higher besides fact i won't take advantage from the extra wattage, like does it explode or malfunction or anything bad could happen for having such potato running with 600-700w psu?

Anyway i'll get the evga 600gd that one is cheap, actually all the psu's above are about teh same price but if for any reason 600GD runs out of stock what do you think bout Cooler Master 600w MWE 80 bronce or Gigabyte 700w B700H? excuse the engrish tyvm

Nothing happens. 

 

You can go as overkill as you want on wattage. It just becomes rather expencive.
