It would be really helpful to know what kind of hardware you want to power (Full PC specs). No purpose in spending the money on an 850 if youd only need 500 or 600 watts. I would recommend having a peek at the Cases and Power Supplies category of the forum, you will find the tier list and the, "How many watts do I need?" thread. @LukeSavenije (whom I owe another beer to) and many other of his colleagues spent a lot of time working on these threads for exactly this reason :) have a peek and if you have any questions feel free to let me know.

 

Cheers!

I checked it and i probabbly need around 600-700W

(planning on upgrading to a next-gen 2070 with the 3700x i already have)

So what PSU should i get for that wattage range?

Thing is, the RM650x and those bitfenix PSU aren't in stock anywhere here.

Are you sure about that?

There's this site and this site and this site, though I don't know how reliable they are for you.

There's also the Seasonic Focus GX which would also be cheaper than the PX

Thanks, i'l look at those!

I can get a focus PX for 10 euro more, wich is platinum rated instead of gold, so wouldn't that be a smarter choice (unless the focus PX quality is lower compared to the RMx)?

The 80+ rating is only for efficiency. It says nothing about how good the PSU is. I would go for the RMx, as it has a fan that isn't crap, it's quieter, and it has more easily available custom cables
