    Corsair VS and Antec VPx50P are serviceable, though not amazing units. Calling those garbage is a huge stretch.

    Dunno about newer CM offerings either.

    Ok, got it again, it seems, if you don't pay at least 125-150$, you won't get anything, even at this price, it's the minimum. Damn, it's near the 1/3 of a Desktop PC these days. I mean, a futureshop PC, but hey, it does it's job.Anyway, that's the way it is i guess. Got it again.

    Seriously. A PSU that can output maximum continuous power (albiet, only at room temperature) versus a unit that is rated at "peak", or higher even, is a bit of a stretch.

    Pretty dumb to call cheap Antec or Corsairs garbage. For the most part they will do exactly what you want within specification. Just because they use some cheap caps and cheaper technology doesn't make them crap. It just makes them bargain psus. Most people would do perfectly fine with a bargain psu since they never come close to max output.

    Now mind you there are a few coolermasters that are pretty poor. But overall a cheap antec or corsair is miles ahead of the garbage you currently have.

    Here's a couple cheap psus you can grab right now (or multiple) to replace all the junk you have -

    Ok, that's a good conversation we're having since the beginning of all my Crappy PSU. That's really interesting to see you guys giving me a lot of knowledge. I'm always fascinated by people who's been there, done that and seen it. Can't really buy these kind of conversation !

    I think i'm a go with 2 of these :

    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/XFX-Core-Edit...2ef9844&_uhb=1

    Recommended by one of the member here. So around 75 $ that's one of the best i came across.

    And someone was offering me this : Seasonic G Series 550W ATX 80PLUS , he's been using it for a year now, he's asking 50 $.

    50 dollars for a year old Seasonic G-550 is a fair price imo.

    Yeah, I'd take the G-550 and call it a day too.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    All the answers seem to presume that OP can read the labels, knows what the numbers mean. But sometimes Amps sum to a larger number than their source.

    Is there a reference somewhere that could help him read labels? After all that was his original question.

    After reading reviews and looking at labels, I think I have a grip now on how to do Amperage sums, label-style. But it would be nice to have the stuff explained explicitly.
    CPU: Core i7 8700k, HT enabled, all 6 cores OC'd to 4.8GHz, Vcore = 1.24v
    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
