Hi,

I'm currently saving money and buying new pc-components but I don't know which PSU to buy. The PCs I did build together were all with pre-selected parts. this is the first time I choose the Components myself

CPU
Intel i5-8600K - Tray (LGA 1151, 3.60GHz, Unlocked)

MoBo
MSI Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON (LGA 1151, Intel Z370, ATX)

Case
Corsair Crystal 570X RGB (Midi Tower)

Cooling
NZXT Kraken x62 inkl. AM4 (3cm)

RAM
Corsair Vengeance LPX (2x, 8GB, DDR4-3000, DIMM 288)

GPU
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Mini (8GB, High End)

HDD / SSD
WD Blue 1TB
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB

 

What PSU would you recommend?

Any 550w PSU with at least a 80+ bronze rating that fits your budget. Preferably modular and black sleeved cables.
So yeah, Be Quiet Dark Power series, Corsair Rmx series, Evga Supernova series are what I'd recommend

Odd SSD selection. Quite old, and I think it had issues with its durability.

 

Without knowing the budget or what's available, Straight Power 11 450W, Whisper M 450, RM550x or Focus Plus Gold 550W. Most to less recommended.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Yeah... The SSD is recycled from my last build that's why it's quite old maybe I will consider replacing that part too

That's a lot lower end than the rest of the system. Instead of getting a budget PSU, consider changing the case to the 460X, or the cooler to something like the H115i Pro.

It'll do fine, however I'd like to note that you can get a Corsair TX650M on sale for under 70 USD on Newegg right now which is a great deal even though your system doesn't need that much power.
