650w will do, but if you have to pick from one of these 4 I'd get the P2


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a mobile workstation/gaming laptop double WITH CRAPPY THERMAL PASTE THAT 1/2 THE CINEBENCH SCORE

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1700MHz 0.812V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 CL19 (timings are so loose, might as well have lower frequency). Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 2 exhausts Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

850W is bullshit for a single CPU/GPU System and 750W is also something you do not really need.

 

Any other Options?


And a good 550W is more than enough.

Corsair RM650X. For an OC 9700K + OC GTX 1080ti, 650W is fine.

The RMx offers great performance, build quality, protections, and is quiet. It is certified as Lambda A++ at Cybenetics.

i'm planning for gaming and programming, almost 16h usage per day,

750w? 

because i'm afraid of system failure from 650w

Your system won't fail. Your system can't even get near 600W as @Stefan Payne said a good 550W is enough.

and i would pick 850w because the price is lower than 750w

I can understand if the 850W is reaaaaaaaaally cheap and you are 100% gonna buy another GPU for SLI/NVLINK. But you don't really need 850W, or 750W.

so what 650w should i get ?

 

Supernova 650 G3 (74$)  or something else?

 

and if that something else is near 100$ then 850w would be better to get (because da its cheaper)

That is pretty solid PSU, it sits in the tier 2 in PSU tier list.

You shouldn't get a 650W. 

The G3 is among the loudest PSUs on the market, and it has issues with its protections. If you like loud, potential fire hazards, it's a good pick.

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

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

A good 450W if you get the 2070 or 1070 Ti, a good 550W if you get the 1080 Ti. 

The exact recommendations will depend on your local pricing. 

Straight Power 11, Whisper M, RMx 2018 or RMx. If none of those are available at decent prices, G2, GX-F or Formula Gold.

650w is G2 is cheaper than 550w
