    Default need help choosing a PSU for a MINI ITX prodigy build

    As the title says I am looking for a PSU for a MINI ITX Prodigy build. I am looking for 550w unit either modular or fully modular. Im trying to stay away from to many cables as Im getting tired of hiding cables n such

    So far I have 1 choice a Silverstone Strider 550w Gold Fully Modular( 140mm) length but its a little pricey at $110.00

    Is there anything else I should look at? The MAX size for the PSU they said needs to be 160mm or it wont fit

    Why do you need that much power for a mITX build?

    The Seasonic G550 is 160mm deep.

    A 780Ti only has a TDP of 250W. Give yourself another 120W for everything else and there's no reason in the world you need that much power.

    so your saying I should jump down to what then. Dont go with a 550? what else should I look at then? This is going in a Mini ITX Prodigy.

    The system will be a

    3770 (Non-k)
    asus Z77-I Deluxe Mini ITX
    16gb of 1600
    1tb HDD
    250gb SSD
    Hyper 202 EVO
    Bluray drive
    GTX 780 or ti (Which ever I choose)
    Fans: x2 120mm, x1 200mm

    No overclocking will be done at all. I dont care much for overclocking.

    What case? A mini-ITX build in a typical mini-ITX case would not use an ATX PSU. Is this a Silverstone case?

    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC
    HD: WD 500GB (old); Case: LIAN LI PC-7H Aluminum ATX Mid Tower
    PSU: Seasonic Platinum 660W

    The case takes a standard ATX PSU, but the depth is limited.
