    Post Picking a replacement PSU with limited options?

    So my current PSU(Cooler Master G550M, model RS-550-AMAA-B1) is causing random restarts, and I'm looking to replace it. It's still under warranty, and I can pick a replacement one in the price range(not sure if I can get the same one, seems they are out of stock).
    If I have the option, should I stick with the model I have(it worked fine for almost 2 years, and has a 5 year warranty, most of the other ones have 2, some 3), or should I get one of these below? Min 500W.
    Mine was 8.200 din, so anything below the red line I would have to pay extra, which I'd rather not do if they aren't much better, and to a max of 9.200 din.



    Here's the rest of my components: ASUS R9 270-DC2OC-2GD5, GIGABYTE GA-990X-Gaming SLI, AMD FX-6300, Kingston Fury HX313C9FB/8, Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001, 1x 80mm fan, 1x 140mm fan.


    Sorry for any english mistakes, it's not my first language.
    Any help is appreciated.

    I would go for the VPF450. For the current system the wattage is completley adequate. The LC Power LC6560GP3 wouldn't be too bad either if it isn't loaded above 450 watts.

    If you favor to have a warranty, the Antec one would be the better choice. LC Power doesn't grant warranty.

    There is a German review: https://www.computerbase.de/2015-07/...r-thermaltake/

    Is that Antec better then the current CM G550M, if I have the chance to get it again?

    The fan quality is worse, so are the looks and it isn't as quiet, but the build quality except the fan is a bit higher.

    The best one, if by far, the Antec VPF 450W.

    More than fine for your system or any future update (ex, i7 + GTX 1070).

    Overall, the VPF is a better unit. Its Delta made and has better caps.

    I dont like the GM. I wouldnt trade a quieter fan for lower end caps and lower build quality.

    Lol that's pretty obvious, Antec makes some good stuff, not crap.

    Wish that at at least the Antec HCG 750 would be available to him.

    Or Antec Earthwatts.
    ....
