Hi, i was looking at upgrading my power supply to a corsair RM550x 80+ gold psu, would this be sufficient with a little headroom for this current setup and how reliable are corsair psus? Ive heard nothing but good things. Im looking to upgrade my gpu and motherboard to an RTX 2060- 2070 super in the near future and mobo is undecided

Specs:

RX590 8gb Gaming X OC GPU

Ryzen 5 3600 CPU

Asus Prime b450m-a motherboard

16gb ddr4 3000mhz RAM (dual channel 2x8gb)

500gb WD Blue nand SSD (upgrading with a second 1tb)

Current psu: thermaltake smart 600w 80+ gold

Peripherals: USB mic, network adapter, rgb mouse and keyboard

 

 

 

Yes it will be enough and it is a really great PSU.

 

As for the motherboard I advise a MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX or A-PRO MAX.

Yes, that's a fairly good PSU IIRC, and more than enough for your setup and upgrades.

Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you.

I have no preferences they are both great. I personnaly use Gigabyte motherboard. The x570 Aorus Elite is a good one but pricier. Or the  Asus X570 Prime-P which is cheaper than the Aorus.
