Define "budget"? If you're planning on upgrading to an Ampere GPU then I'd assume you can fit at least a decent PSU in your budget.

Well, I can't really comment on that since we have no info on Ampere GPUs at all, nevermind specifically a "3060", but I couldn't find any reviews on the Antec B550.

I just hope that it's not an atomic timebomb in disguise, considering the "ATOM" branding on it and how cheap it looks.

I think so CX650M seems solid for me semi modular too


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Yes, the new, grey label CX models are also good. They're a bit louder compared to the Pure Power 11 but if that's not an issue then yeah, they're also solid options.
