PSU change needed for rtx3080?

Current build, 

R7 2700X

8G x4 ram

2 nvme, 4 HDD(max can be 8 HDD) 

5x 120mm fan

Gtx 1070

Evga G1/G+/G1+ 650w power supply(not recall which model, 650w is conform) 

 

Straight plug-in 320w monster rtx 3080 is a no-no. So i plan to upgrade 850-1000w power supply. 

Which i should start? Because i never go above 600/650w before, so has no idea what kind of power supply i will need. 

 

With early search, i found one 1000w brand new power supply with weird pricing: Superflower Leadex Platinum SE 1000W only about 100-150usd (after conversion). I know it was like 2010-2012 old model, but how that even happen with that price? Will it work?

You'll likely be fine with that 650 watt power supply too. It's a pretty decent 650w and that 2700x is not as power hungry as the 10900K that the 750w recommended on the 3080 is for. And Nvidia did leave themselves headroom on that too. Buying a 1000W psu is just overkill that's not needed at all.

If a deal looks too good to be true its probably not. You should be fine with a 1000w and have room  to grow  Never cheap out on your PSU

Honestly your PSU is fine.

I have a link in my signature talking about how you don't need a big PSU (it's a bit dated, but still relevant)

Nvidia says 750W for the 3080 so.

 

I wouldn't go above the 850W range however, that should give plenty of room for future upgrades and or builds.

850w is plenty for a rtx3080 build. unless you are crazy crazy overclocking then maybe you might need more, would have to see benchmarks and reviews first before i can say for sure. but nvidia recommends a 750 watt psu for a 10900k and a rtx3080. but if you have a crazy amount of fans and drives etc then you might need more. anything with 80+ bronze or better is prettyy good. there are some brands better than others but everyone is so biased on that its crazy. so id say get a quality psu with good reviews

Due to all said it's fine. I quote all together and reply. 

 

Is it real 650w will run fine? 

The 27x i didnt oc it, only oc slightly voltage for the ram to run 4x 3200mhz.

 

Because there got people(other forum) asking with 550w,750w powersupply but seen like nobody with 650w asking. 

 

Also the leadex 1000w is legit, only downside its old product. The pricing i check was on local reputable pc hardware store, not random aliexpress nor taobao. 

 

Maybe i wait it release and check out the total power consumption later? So to decide i switch power supply or not.?

A 750W 80 Plus should be more than enough, good quality tho

Can't hurt to wait, but seriously I think you'll be totally fine.
