Yeah since a PSU can take other hardware with it, no thank you. I would not take any risks...

 


I will not buy or use a shitty PSU, in the hope the manufacterers of those shit PSU go bankrupt and we only have good ones left. :)
(i know, but a man can dream cant i.)

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

for budget I'm assuming it's in usd, can I get a decent one at around 25 to 50 usd? I only have a low end pc btw a biostar A320MH, ryzen 3 2200g, a1 stick of ddr4 8gb or ram(planning to buy another one), a WD 240 sata ssd, and an acer V196HQL monitor, doesn't even have gpu.

I'm from the philippines btw thank you for your help

Yeah i think to get most eyes on it, is make a seperate topic for that question. (USD works but since it needs to be sourced localy also local currency helps, there are ppl from all over the world in here.)
Remember the better you make that post look the better the results might be. ;)

 

Also pretty sure if you not planning on putting a GPU in there 500Watts is way overkill.

The CPU would barely reach 100Watts used then a HDD is about 5-10Watts mother board takes around 20Watts. So you could even do with a 200Watt PSU.
But to be safe i would recommend a 300Watt-ish quality PSU.

Google 80+ ratings, to understand what white means.

Thermaltake Smart 430W

The 80+ rating is about the efficiency of the PSU. Your house's voltage is probably somewhere between 120 and 240 volts, but your PC parts don't run at that voltage. They mostly run on 12v, 5v or 3.3v power.

A PSU takes your mains 120-240v and converts it to 3.3v-12v power. In converting this power, there is some ineffeciency. The 80+ rating has various level (white, bronze, silver, gold, etc.) with varying levels of efficiency but they start (as the 80+ name suggests) at 80% efficiency and go up.

 

Anyways, this efficiency rating is mostly irrelevant when picking out a PSU, because it is not a quality rating. There are numerous components in a PSU, which need to be of sufficient quality.

 

Without knowing what PC parts you're getting, it's hard to say what sort of quality of PSU you need (as you can imagine a system with no videocard vs. a dual RTX 3080 needs a way different quality tier of PSU).

This Thermaltake PSU is not great though and I cannot recommend it.

 

Please list the components in your PC (at least the CPU, videocard and case) and rough budget on the PSU for some different recommendations.

Efficiency is how much power the psu draws from the wall to supply the needed power for the build. it has nothing to do with quality.

Budget? what are you powering? and location and currency? the thermal take smart is pretty bad and i personally would not use it.

thanks for your reply its very informative I almost thought that 80+ ratings are quality ratings

 

anyways here are the specifications of my low end pc:

 

ryzen 3 2200g(and a stock cpu cooler)

Biostar A320MH

WD Green ssd 240Gb

1 stick of 8Gb ram (planning to buy another one)

a 24 inch led monitor

i don't have any GPU

and planning to add 2 case fans

don't know what brand my case is though but it's a generic one that comes with a psu

 

my budget is around 25-50$

 

thanks for helping bro

Both are slightly out of this budget, but these would be the cheapest PSU's I would be comfortable recommending.

reason I asked is because if it's for example a non-standard case, a new PSU might not fit in the current case.

Oh yea that's a rough budget. 

what are you powering exactly? and does the system power 9 or the MWE white V2 or the bronze V2 or the cx or the pure power 11/11cm (400w and above) fit in your budget? 

because honestly, please don't cheap out on a psu.

Welp, my brother are on the same problem. And kind of the same budget, unfortunately. @minibois @TofuHaroto

 

Ryzen 5 1500X, stock cooler

8 GB of GEIL RAM

ASUS's 1050 Ti

MSI B350 Mortar

1 140mm front fan, 1 120mm back fan

 

I saw on PSU calculator and it's on 320-ish W.

Is it actually good enough to use a 450W PSU for this build? Previously he's using a 500W XFX XT (and yes, shady af brand turns out. Can't even find a contact of the local company. Seller claims it's Seasonic's OEM lol) that suddenly dies of no reason.

Humor me, as you should do.

 

Daily drivers:

 

Acer Aspire E5-475G

Intel Core i5-7200U 2.5 GHz (Turbo 3.1 GHz) || NVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB

4GB Micron DDR4 + 4GB Team Group DDR4 PC19200

120 GB WD Green M.2 SATA SSD + 480 GB Pioneer APS-SL3N SATA SSD

Windows 10 Single Language x64

 

Some old computer laying around as my HTPC

Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 1.8GHz || (fake lol) NVIDIA GeForce GT730 2GB DDR3

Some random old motherboard. Works fine tho.

512 MB + 512 MB random DDR memory

40GB IDE HDD + 1 TB old laptop SATA HDD, got bad sector unfortunately

Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Xfce x64

Some old TCL CRT TV laying around + RCA to HDMI converter

 

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8

4GB RAM, 64GB Internal Storage 

64GB SanDisk Ultra (80MB/s Read) External Storage

MIUI 11 Global

Aukey Turbo Charger PA-U28 QC2.0 + Aukey CB-CD4 PVC Type-C Cable

 

Audio

Some random home-theater speakers I took freely from someplace and big-ass bass with old computer speaker amplifier. It sounds good af tho.

The CX450 would be fine for this build.

Can't recommend the S12III with a dedicated videocard.

Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately can't even find any single one CX 450 on the market. All of the CX variant started on 550 and it's way beyond of the budget.

 

Is CV 450 will do any good?
