Could i go 650 if I want headroom for overclocking and Wanting  to upgrade in future

You could, but there's no need for that, choose better quality over more wattage, also components are getting less power hungdry, not more.

Tier b+ at least and up and you are good :

 

I can’t decide whether to go for a 750 watt psu or an 850 watt psu for 2070 super and also can’t decide either corsair or EVGA

both are overkill for a 2070 super, a good 550w PSU is enough.

Company doesn't matter, and 550 watts gives you a lot of headroom

 

Also make sure to quote us so we can see your responses.

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

Just click quote on the post of the person you are responding to or mention them

@Mitzy

And again, you don't need 650 w, you need a quality unit of 550w, 600 if  you can find a good deal.  Just don't buy a unit because it has enough wattage, that way you might end up with a fire hazard that will kill all your system.

Not talking about color, model name. Never mind that, you picked decent unit. As it was pointed out, it's not the best, (didn't say it was) so if you have the budget for it, buy something better, tier A and up.

Do you know why g3 isn’t good for a psu 550 unit. Found out dodgy fan controller so I’ll go corsair instead 550x

@Mitzy I have this unit https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3Vc48d/be-quiet-straight-power-11-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-bn281 in one of my pc's, no known issues afaik. Very quiet too, would highly recommend it. @LukeSavenije @Juulardoes this unit has some sort of issues or problems that I'm not aware? If so, please recommend something that does not.

I think i recall some reports that it's unstable with AMD Vega GPUs but it should be easily fixable by using two PCI-e cables from different rails. It's a good PSU.

Tag or quote me so i see your reply

Yes, it is. What cpu you are pairing your gpu with? Just curious.
