    TacosBurritos reacted to MEC-777 in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    No worries, be confident in your purchase. It's a good quality unit that's priced really well.

    On Mercado I saw a few eVGA BR, which - as beeing Tier C+ - should be suitable for you as well - if cheap. 
    And Corsair CXM (semi) modular. They're good, Tier B, and not so expensive. (450/550/650 is Tier B, 400/500/600 Tier C+).
     
    CX550m for $63 sounds good to me.

    TacosBurritos reacted to illimay in Inquiring about my power draw...   
    I've used OuterVision, and I don't think that's a very accurate calculation of what my PC is using in terms of power.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me estimate how much power my PC is drawing. 
    I'm well aware that I need a proper power meter to get an accurate reading, but I just wanna know the ball-park figure.
     
    MoBo: TUF B450M Pro
    CPU: Ryzen 9 3900x (stock cooler)
    GPU: RX 580 O8G D5 8GB
    RAM: two 8GB cards at 3000mHz
    SSD: 6 regulars and 1 M.2
    HDD: 2 (7.2k RPM)
    Fan: 1 for the case
    Monitors: dual 27 inch
     
    I'm using my computer maybe around 16 hours a day for work.
    They're usually CPU intensive since I run Cubase and requires a lot of real-time audio playback but my CPU never goes over 20%

    I still disagree on >550W (o.k., max 600W), there has to be a viable option somewhere. And $15 not spend is $15 saved, no matter where and why, you do not get any benefit on higher psu-wattages.
     
    And the Antec (Tier C) did well so far, it's just at age. They don't have the very Antec any longer?

    Yes, they'll probably talking about system power consumption, not the power draw of the graphics-cards.

    Yeah, don't trust those calculators.
    The GTX 1660 will max out at around 125W, and the 1650 probably below 100W.
    Out of the units you've mentioned, probably the RM750 would be the best option - it's fairly similar to the RMx series, except for the fan that isn't as quiet as the one on the RMx, but it also has the zero RPM feature (fan won't spin until a certain load) so I still wouldn't worry about any noise.

    Unless you're using Ryzen 9 or 2080/5700XT level of cards, 500w is still good enough

    This is correct. The part number you listed for the RM750 CP-9020195-NA is for the new 2019 version.
     
    What are the prices of each?
     
    Your system will only consume like 200W... The GTX1650 is a very low power consumption card and the Ryzen 1300X doesn't consume much power either.  The other stuff like a single HDD and single SSD hardly consumes any power.
     
    Are you buying from stores that have a website where we can see what is available?

    That system even runs on a 300W psu. Even with a 3600 and a 2060s and a ton of drives my system draws under full load only 270W, so there is still plenty of headroom on a 500-550W PSU. Save some money in getting a lower power psu and put that towards upgrades. Even something like the corsair cxm450 or how this thing is called should be plenty even with upgrades. And if you dont get crappy fans or server fans, they won't draw a noticeable amount of power. Leds are very power efficient so thats a couple of watts at max too.

    Do they also happen to have a TX550M or an RM550x? 
    Your system could legit run on a 400W PSU, as it won't consume more than 200-225W even at full load, but 550W is a good sweet spot as in your efficiency won't be as low as if you were to go with a 700W+ unit, and it will still be plenty for CPU/GPU upgrades in the future.

    Agree with 450-550W psu rec, they should have something in this area. And I'd go semi-modular, not full.

    My mistake, but my point remains the same. The 1650 Super requires even less power.
     
    I don't know prices in Mexico are, but you might consider an RX 470 or 570. They're both better than the 1650 Super, but cheaper in the US.

    Probably just size tbh. 
    Smaller cards have worse cooling but fit smaller builds. 
    Tbh with a card like the 1650 super you shouldn't loose anything by going with a smaller card

    then the best deal of the bunch is the Strix, period.
     
    Maybe better than the TUF but not an outstanding card by any means. Gigabyte's low end (in the product stack) dual fan cards are always in the line of "good enough to replace the stock blower but that's it" category. Exception being the RX Vega 2 fan model, but they dont offer anything better either so that might as well be their flagship.

    Unless there is a design you really like, just buy whichever is cheapest. The 1660 Super is pretty low on power consumption, so cooler design isn't a huge deal. The only time it would make a difference is if you're constrained on space.

    TacosBurritos reacted to Jurrunio in GTX 1650 Super different models, why?   
    Also, why Asus?
     
    can't find reviews of these exact cards, but similar coolers are used on other 16 series GPUs so we can extrapolate from that
     
    The Phoenix worked ok on the 1660, so as long as Asus don't cut down something in their cooler it should fare ok.
     
    No reviews on the TUF, but small (80mm, others look like 90mm) fans typically generate higher pitch noise and the more sealed off shroud design harms airflow. I won't consider it just by looking at it.
     
    Strix card should be overkill, which is a huge problem when we're talking about an affordable GPU. Imo overkill is only good for the high end, where you can't buy a higher end product with that bit of extra money anyway.

    500w might be considered a little low considering certain hardware on the market. While it should power most configurations. 
     
    Also your wording sounded as if there was a reason not to go higher. Whicj outside of singlerail >750w really isnt a thing.

    You shouldn't go higher than 400W for that PC. 500W max with the upgrades in mind. As it currently stands, even a quality 300W unit can power everything no sweat. The 750ti needs like 3 and a half watts.

    they are all terrible, just so you know. 
    as ive allready informed, you can run your new GPU untill you can get  PSU

    TacosBurritos reacted to GoldenLag in 1650 super and very old 520w psu... should i?   
    you can run a 9900k/3950x + 2070 super on the cx450. 
     
    the 80+ bronze sticker is an efficiency rating. says nothing about how good the PSU actually is. 
     
    the cx450 is really a 80+ silver PSU in terms of efficiency, and its a really good budget PSU. id opt for the 550w model as that can run any consumer single GPU system. 
  22. Agree
    TacosBurritos reacted to Fasauceome in 1650 super and very old 520w psu... should i?   
    450 watts is more than enough, see my signature below for a reference.
     
    well, older PSUs can have multiple problems, not necessarily explosions but lacking protections and good power delivery can cause general problems down the line when using modern hardware.
     
    If you love nvidia, look at getting a GTX 1060 3GB, which is similar to an RX 570, or a GTX 1060 6GB, which is similar to an RX 580 (and therefore the 1650 super). There's also the GTX 970 but then you're getting into graphics cards that require more PCIe power connectors and the CX450 only has 1x6+2 pin PCIe.
  23. Agree
    TacosBurritos reacted to Bitter in 1650 super and very old 520w psu... should i?   
    If you don't mind used parts then there's always PowerColor RX580 Red Devil 8GB on ebay for around $120 which is still a pretty good deal for the money. You do need some decent case airflow and an undervolt to keep them cool but they're good cards with a good cooler.

    Its a S12ii rebrand which means its fine to use for some time. Id look at changing it in the future tho. 
     
    I wouldnt suggest getting the gtx 1650 tho as other offerings like the rx 570 or 580 is more desirable. 
     
    edit: the S12ii being a group regulated unit based on a pretty old design. its not desirable to buy it new today (yes its still sold sadly together with many other group regulated units).
