New Builder PSU question

Im planning on getting the Thermaltake 500w 80+ White. I play warzone, apex, fortnite, r6, csgo, rust, other esport titles and some slightly more demanding games. I don't know if I should opt for a coolermaster 550w 80+ bronze though. Let me know.

My build is the following:

Mobos: Any a320m boards

ram: 4x2gb ddr4 3200mhz

Case Fans: 2

SSD: silicon power 256gb

CPU: r3 3100

GPU: RX 570 asus rogstrix 4gb

 

I'd just like to add, I know the Coolermaster is better than the Thermaltake PSU. Although if the Thermaltake will suffice my needs then I'd rather just go for the Thermaltake. Please keep in mind that this is not a gaming rig. Merely a PC I will be using to entertain myself and sometimes gaming (a bit every day and more on the weekend).

I would go for the Thermaltake 550w 80+ Bronze.

It has a bit of extra wattage wiggle room, plus it's slightly more efficient so it won't draw quite as much power under load.

Is this the MWE 80+ bronze V2?

 

And i do not suggest getting the thermaltake smart, if that is the one you are looking at. You are outlining the efficiency, but thats not what makes a PSU good. 

 

If the MWE 80+ white V2 is and option, then that is a better pick than the smart by a long shot.

Would drawing more power be a performance problem or a money because i live in canada electricity is worth 0.017cents.

No, the psu im talking about is this. If this drops in price i think i might just go with this, it looks a lot better.

better for less

 

400w is plenty for that system.

same unit

100w extra that you wont use, but still cheaper and better

even better, tho only 1 6+2 pin connector, but that is fine for a rx 570

this thing is also a bit better than the system power 9 (dont buy the 450w and 550w variant, those are completely different units internally. )

little bit more than the MPX, but also much nicer. 

 

 

 

pick any one of these, they are all better than the thermaltake smart and MPX as they dont use group regulated topologies (which is something you prefferably avoid)
