Good Budget Power Supply?

So I'm building this set-up:

 

CPU: Ryzen 5 1500X

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-AB350M-D3H (OR GA-AB350-GAMING)

RAM: Avexir Core 8Gb DDR4-2400

Video Card: GTX1070

Storage: WD 1Tb 7200

 

I really doubt my Seasonic 520W 80+ Bronze would satisfy the system's need. Can any of you recommend a good but budget (USD$50-70) power supply? I prefer if its low-profile coz im building the case as well. Thx very much!

Well Ryzen 5 1500X needs a TDP of 65W, then GTX1070 needs 500W, and around 100W for the rest of the system.

It recommends 500W for overall system usage.

Ok so now I'm confused does it needs an overall (as in everything added together not just the card) of 500W?

no GTX 1070 and 1080 request a 500W power supply for the entire system.

however, this is actually overkill. you can run a 1070 with a 400W PSU with likely no problems.

if you didn't overclock, you could SLI two 1070s on that 520W PSU, although that is pushing it pretty close to it's limit.

I'm just gonna TL;DR:

 

Keep your Seasonic and don't replace it.
