New PSU under 100$ (550W or 650W?)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, so I´m planning to upgrade my PC and with that also a power supply. I went through the PSUs tier list and searched for them in my local eshop (I´m in eastern Europe, so the prices are higher). An online wattage calculater told me I should get a 435W PSU or higher (385W load). I´m not interested in overclocking and I do mainly Adobe apps (graphic, photo and video editing, after effects) and some gaming and I was planning to do some streaming mby. I was thinking I should maybe get a 650W PSU, because I´m not planning to upgrade it for at lease another 5+ years, but I might upgrade the GPU in the future and it would require more power (I wont go high end)? 

 

Specs:

- AMD Ryzen 5 3600

- RX580

- 16GB DDR4 (2x8GB)

- 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD 5,4K and externals

 

PSUs I found in tier list or my shop.

1)  EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G+ (104$)

2)  EVGA 750 B3 (89$)

3)  EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G3 (88$)

4)  Corsair CX650M (87$)

5)  GIGABYTE P650B (76$)

6)  EVGA 650 B3 (76$)

7)  Corsair CV650 (60$)

 

The only one from A tier is the EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G3 (88$), but I was also thinking about the Corsair CV650 (60$) B tier, because its cheaper and is 650W vs EVGA is 550W. Feel free to recomment eny other option and thanks for any information.

A good quality 550W unit will be fine. Do you have a link to your local online retailers? What EU country are you located in, because if,

Should be able to order in other european countries too and get it shipped without taxes.

The EVGA G3 550W would be my choice from that list.

Yeah I don´t really want to order it elsewhere, because than if there are some problems with it or whatever It will be very difficult to return it.

Is amazon available to you? If so, returns are very easy. 
 

if it has to be of the list you mentioned I agree with @Spotty

I always recommend the Corsair RMx series. (550W model will be fine)
