Which psu to bought?

11 hours ago, OscarUF said:

Hi guys, first post here.

I'm currently building my first PC and I need some recomendations about which PSU should I get, my current build specs are:

MOBO: ASUS PRIME B450M-A
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600.
GPU: Sapphire Pulse RX 5500 XT

RAM: 16 GB (2 x 8 GB )
Storage: 1 SSD NVME & 1 7200 HDD.

Case: XPG Invader

 

I don't have plans to do an OC (and not with this MOBO).

PD: I'm from México, the budget can be roundly the $65.

Here is a link for PSU tiers 

Honestly speaking, Pick anything you like and fits in your budget - just remember try to get a PSU that is atleast Tier c or higher and is rated atleast 80+ bronze.

Thanks, I was actually thinking on that EVGA, but my first thought it was that maybe will be a little fitted.

Look for a corsair CX instead, all of those are crappy.

Scratch that, filter was set wrong. However there still isn't much choice under the $65 mark for a decent unit

Well it can be more higher, there is no problem, the point is to bought a good PSU that can handle correctly the PC but also not in something that's exceed too much.

As @Herman Mcpootis said, a Corsair CX450/550 would be fine.
