Is Corsair CV550 enough for my computer?

Hello there. My current PSU is dead. I'm looking for a replacement. I don't know what happened to it, system turns on for 5 seconds and shuts down. Current PSU model is Gigabyte P650B bought in March 2020.

 

I have Intel Xeon X5450 CPU and AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU.

 

I found Corsair CV550 for good price in my country.

 

Is it enough for my system?

What version of the cv550 is it? What color is the label.

 

The reason your gigabyte died is because its a literal BOMB of a psu. It's known to catch fire and kill systems. I hope your system is still alive DO NOT TURN IT ON UNTIL REPLACED and unplug it.

Are there different versions of the CV?

Are you mistaking it for the GP P-GM power supplies? Not saying the P650B is a good power supply, but I haven't heard anything about it catching fire and killing systems.

Groupregulated PSUs are good for...almost nothing. I'm wondering why they still make that kind of platforms. Get a CV650 because at least it has DC-DC or some other independent regulated PSU. Do you have a link to a webshop?

No confused it for the vs series and yes I also confused the gigabyte letters.
