Can somebody help me find a good power supply

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys I have another question about pc building but this time it is about a power supply. I need a 650w power supply for my rig and I need it to be around the $100-$200 price range, does anybody have any good suggestions on maybe some 80 plus gold power supplies for 650 watts? Thanks.

the rm650x is a solid unit, albeit if you can find it in stock

I have and RM650i great PSU, I would suggest it (RM650x you don´t need the "smart"  functionalities), and in case you wanted more headroom the RM 750x is always a good option

Seasonic makes reliable units but I don't have much experience with them, but if you wanted something other than corsair, well, go for it.

PSUs are often out of stock at the moment so you might have some problems finding some models

I'm going to 2nd the RM650x. The RMx series has proven quite reliable for my 24/7 applications.

 

Alternatively you can reference the PSU tier list people have linked above.

BTW my recommendations are:

1. Be Quiet Straight Power 11 650W 80+ Gold

2. Corsair TX650M 80+ Gold

@blackviking03 These are the specs I am think of getting for my first of build:

 

- AMD Ryzen 5 3600x or ryzen 3700x

- either the msi rtx 2060 or the msi rtx 2070 super

- Corsair vengeance 16 GB dd4r ram

- Samsung 970 evo plus 1TB ssd

Go for the Be Quiet Straight Power 11 650W 80+ Gold, it is fully modular and really really quiet, you will be satisfied.

 

AMD Ryzen is a good choice for you.

 

Don't buy an AMD GPU because AMD has driver problems and if you want something to work properly and be ready to game without problems right after you install the drivers NVIDIA is the choice for you.

 

If you have the money go for the RTX 2070 Super, but RTX 2060 is also a very good competitor.

They have all been fixed. I have had my 5700xt for 8 months and have never had an issue, the same as 95% of people.

That is just incorrect. The 5700xt frequently gets 20-30fps more.

Well, my friend bought components for his new rig and had me build it for him (because he didn't want to risk damaging the new components). He bought a 5700XT to combine with a Ryzen 7 and 16GB DDR4 memory. Everything worked fine after I plugged everything in and turned it on, I went to the AMD site ,downloaded and installed the newest drivers and everything seemed alright. Not more than 2 days after I built the computer he started having issues, I had to go to his house like 5 times in one week because he had issues with blue screens, driver crashes etc. I successfuly fixed the issues a few times but they just kept coming back and I told him to return his 5700 XT and get a 2060 or a 2060 Super and he got the 2060 Super and since then he hasn't had any issues.

Well then he is one of the 5% who have had problems.

I was an owner of an AMD card myself and I have had tons of problems with the drivers and since switching to NVIDIA I honestly never thought of going back to AMD (excluding the CPU, I own a Ryzen 5 2600 and I don't have any issues with it.)

 

Why risk with something when you know the other side will work better?

@gloop do you have any suggestions on specific models because I don’t know much about amd gpu’s. I know many nvidea brands like msi and evga but I don’t know what would be a good option for a 5700 xt, thanks

Thanks you and why the teamgroup mp34 1tb ssd

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Y6YLrH/team-mp34-1-tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-tm8fp4001t0c101

 

because its a whole lot cheaper while offering only slightly worse drive performance. 

 

with few exceptions, the samsung drives are overpriced for what they offer.
