I bought a corsair RM550x at the end for 100 euros, good right?

Even better - the RMx is a really solid choice.

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB

Motherboard: MSI B550-A PRO

PSU: Corsair CX 600 (pretty old but works well)

Secondary memory: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD

Case: Thermaltake Case Mid Tower H200

 

Right now i want to use a sapphire r9 270x, but for christmas i'll buy (probably) a 1660 super. I have to buy a PSU. https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator tells me "recommended PSU wattage:353 W" so i was thinking about a 450W, but to be sure, i wanted a 500W at least.

 

The same website recommend me this PSU:

https://www.amazon.it/dp/B079KBPXZJ/?SubscriptionId=AKIAIGIKPS7N7DIKIGVQ&tag=xov-it-21&linkCode=xm2

but on the internet i read that this i much better:

https://www.amazon.it/Corsair-CX550M-Alimentatore-Modulare-Bronze/dp/B019NWRUXK/ref=sr_1_2?__mk_it_IT=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&dchild=1&keywords=corsair%2B500w&qid=1603891731&s=pc&sr=1-2&th=1

 

75 euros is very expensive for me, but if i have to i'll get it.. is there something else on amazon.it, as good, for a lower or similar price? What do you guys recommend me?

Thank you!

Thank you so much! I dont know about the Seasonic S12III since in one of the reviews on amazon a guy says that it burned his computer. The be quiet pure power 11 500w is exactly the same price as the cx550m, which one is better?

The S12III is okay for what it is (a value unit), and should work fine for your components. I'd take the MWE Bronze v2 over it - I put it in there mostly just to show another option.

I wouldn't really call random Amazon reviews or whatever reliable per se, so who knows whether there was something else at play in their case.

The Pure Power 11 is definitely better than the CXM.

There are actually multiple reviews on amazon.it and .com saying that the seasonic s12III fried their components, but yeah maybe they did something wrong since most of the reviews are 4+ stars. If you think that the pure power 11 is a lot better than the seasonic, and it's worth the extra price i'll get it, otherwise if i can save those 20 euros, i'll be glad. What do you think?

If you want to save some money, I'd get this: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B082NK1QWG?tag=pcp06-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1

If ~€70 isn't a problem, I'd say the Pure Power 11 is the way to go.

The first one is not available, so it's 62.40 euros.. so 15 euros difference wouldn't really make a huge difference if it's worth it. For the be quiet you mean this one here right: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B07JJH9XLP?tag=pcp06-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1

Ah, you're right, my bad. The 450W is available though.

 

Yes, that's the PP11. Do note that the 300/350W models are significantly worse in terms of quality, but you probably weren't considering those anyway.

Oh wow the 450W is very cheap compared to the pure power 11, do you think there's a big difference between the 2? is it worth the extra 33 euros?

I'd expect the Pure Power to be quieter (at least under load), but either of them should work just fine for your components.
