Recommended Wattage for my build.

How many watts would you suggest I should get for: 

Ryzen 5 1600 (Most likely will not OC) 

16GB 2666-2800Mhz RAM

GTX Gigabyte Windforce OC 1060 6GB

 

I want to get a platinum one just to save a few bucks here and there. 

 

Thanks in advance :)

500 watts would be plenty.

You could go for 600 watts if you plan to upgrade the card down the line to something like a 1080Ti.

I have a 500W 80+ Bronze. Should I upgrade to a platinum one?

Nah, you're talking about maybe a couple dollars in savings over the course of a year.

Hell no. They are super duper expensive.

 

What is the model name of the one you have?

It's a Kolink 500W. I don't know if it will harm my PC or anything

No idea how good Kolnik PSU is, but 500W is more than enough for your build.

Check my signature ... with monitor, routers, speakers etc. my max power usage was 400W.

Not a PSU I would stay with. Wattage is more than enough, but there's no open the casing review to assess the build quality. All I can find is voltage supplied, which are within limits and seemed ok.

depends where u live, if the electricity is extremely expensive ( like my country for example )

 

that bronze to platinum might help u ... however the platinum ones are extremely expensive its better to get a gold one as a upgrade instead :P

 

electricity in usa is cheap af tho if u live there i wouldnt bother

I live in the UK. I've done some research and it's just a tiny bit more expensive than the US. So I think I should be fine with a Bronze for now.

But your PSU seems a little sketchy. I'd get a new PSU in your position. I'd not buy a PSU based on its efficiency though. There are more important factors when buying a PSU like the build quality and electrical performance.

 

If you wanted something more efficient then an EVGA G3 or Seasonic Focus Plus would do well.

|PSU Tier List /80 Plus Efficiency| PSU stuff if you need it.
