PSU for 2070 build.

So, with holidays coming I am looking at picking up a 2070, I don't mind that it is a bit of a meme, but a 2080/ti  is just absurdly out of my price range.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mhCVw6 my rig specs are here and a while ago I posted https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/929107-suggestions-for-a-new-more-reliable-power-supply-mines-a-fire-hazard-apparently/?tab=comments#comment-11362399 in which i discovered that my PSU is a fire hazard if anything beefy was to be hooked up to it.

 

Naturally, as you might imagine, that doesn't sound like any kind of fun at all.

 

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mhCVw6 This is what I have now, and while not spectacular, it beats the hell out of the 2nd-gen i3/4gb-ddr3/9600gt micro atx "computer" (if you want to even call that thing one) that I had prior.

 

So, as you can see in the pcpartpicker link provided, I am using 190w of 650w currently.

If I were to add the 2070, I would go up to 300w but apparently upgrading the CPU to say 2700 from 1600 would still be the same 65w usage.

 

I think that a 750w gold or platinum is really the only way to go here to be on the safe side.

These were the 4 that were suggested to me, and I would like to know if they are still being manufactured and good power bricks.

Remaking this thread as I don't want to necropost, and the old post got a bit off topic discussing the danger of my PSU rather more than discussing what I should be moving to.

If you're referring to the wattage, yes its fine but I think you'll actually be good with a 650w. I hope you're not referring to the gold and platinum ratings as quality.
