I am thinking about Corsair CV-450 80+ or does my system need more Watts

450W is plenty but that unit is too poor quality to pair with a dedicated graphics card imo.

If you want to go cheaper, get a System Power 9 400W/500W or a Pure Power Gold (non-modular) 400W.

the absolute cheapest I would trust with that system.

https://rozetka.md/be_quiet_bn245/p100684123/

 

also, I would change the case. the h510 has notoriously bad airflow. get one with a mesh front, like this one:

https://rozetka.md/deepcool_matrexx_55_mesh/p139942980/

 

Was thinking about getting a new case but i already have this one. And i don`t think that 400W is enough. Thanks for replying!

The 500W version seems reasonable.

Yup it will do well in your system.

What about a Xilence performance A+ series or X?

Maybe a Chieftec Core bbs? Saw it in the Psu tier list

I can't personally recommend them since I've never looked into them.

The PSU tier list is definitely not the be-all and end-all of accurately telling how good a power supply is, but if they're at least in the B tier then I guess there's a reason why they're there.

if you pick anything in the tier lsit that's B or B+, you'll be fine. B+ is preffereed of course, I was not sure what your budget is. The a+ isn't great, the X is good.

Yep, saw a reddit thread regarding the Performance A+ series and a the thread creator had big issues , i guess that i will have to look more in the tier list or just go with a be quiet! 

Was thinking about Xilence because i heard that both Xilence and be quiet! have their PSUs from Liston or smt like that.

So do you recommend a Xilence Performance X ? Did find it in the B+ tier.

What's wrong with be quiet's System Power 9 or Pure Power 11..?

I couldn't find any legitimate reviews of this unit, all I know is the regular Thermaltake Smart is really poor.

There are no Gold rated Thermaltake Smart SE, only one with fake '87%+' bardge, neither it is currently in the list, definitely not in tier B, it would be added to tier D in the next revision.
