Looking for budget PSU for 3700x+Rx 5500XT build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys! I'm looking for a budget PSU for my first build. My budget is below $100. All I want is stability. I may need to keep the machine on and run CPU intensive job for longer than a week.

pcpartpicker estimates the power consumption is about 319W. I'm considering

 

Any other recommendations? Should I wait for the restock of other PSU?

My partpicker estimates the power consumption is about 374W. I'm not sure if CORSAIR CX Series CX450 450W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply  is enough. The price on newegg is around $64.94.

The CX series (grey label, not green) is an okay choice, something like a Corsair TXm would be better. And 450W will be enough, I have a similar spec PC with an R7 1700 and Rx 580 8GB powered by a 450W PSU as well, max draw has never really gone past 300W.
