they're not units that I would put in my gaming system, even a cheap gaming system.

 

You should consider the CX450, CX450M, and CX550 if you want to save money.

I'm getting a new computer (Ryzen 3700X and a 5700 XT). As it is a long time since I did it, I would like recommendations. I'm looking into this PSU:

Or this Corsair should be better?

If none of those are good, I'm thinking about getting the Corsair CXM or TXM 550W. What are your thoughts?

you said one thing in the title and linked another thing in the post.

 

neither are very good for a gaming PC.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

CX550M (with grey label, not green) would be best here.

Let's put it this way. I trust the EVGA BR as much as the old CX Green. Meaning, not at all. The BR is pretty crappy and not worth the money at all.

If I can ask just one more thing, because I couldnt find a lot of information about this PSU series:

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX80375

 

Is it better than the CX series?

GD is on the same level, but usually it's more expensive because it's 80+ gold (which doesn't matter here)
