    Default PSU Recommendation

    Hi I am building my first budget gaming PC and I am at the last hurdle of picking my PSU.

    First I thought going by tiers was the way to go, but after some reading here, I just got more confused.

    Here's my setup:
    CPU: Intel Pentium G4560
    GPU: Asus Dual Fan RX 480 4GB
    RAM: 2 X 4GB GSkill Aegis
    Motherboard: Asus h110m-k
    SSD : 120gb Samsung Evo 850
    Casing: Tecware f3 or similar

    Location: Malaysia
    The more common brands here are Cooler Master and Corsair, amongst others.

    Looking for a budget build, but also planning to upgrade my components 2 years down the line.

    Appreciate suggestions on PSU, thanks!

    Please link to your favourite e-shops or local online price comparators.

    I usually survey prices at lelong.my (online marketplace)

    Or to get local shop prices, they provide price list pdfs at this site:

    http://www.hardwarezone.com.my/priceLists

    The prices for shops are quite similar so I would just recommend checking out Czone, Asashi, Cycom & Viewnet are the more famous shops.

    Hope that helps.

    From: here:

    1. This is the absolute minimum, anything lower (quality/performance) is pure garbage: http://www.lelong.com.my/fsp-hexa-40...-01-Sale-I.htm
    2. About same level, different capacity (not really useful, you need 200W more or less): http://www.lelong.com.my/cooler-mast...-02-Sale-P.htm
    3. This one is rather decent, the least expensive one I found: http://www.lelong.com.my/cooler-mast...-02-Sale-P.htm
    4. About same level as above, this is a decent option from Corsair, albeit it should be some special offer given the rated, higher (pointless, for your needs) capacity: http://www.lelong.com.my/corsair-cx-...-11-Sale-P.htm
    5. This one, instead, should be a bit better (at least: it might actually be rather good, but I never saw a comprehensive review about): http://www.lelong.com.my/super-flowe...-01-Sale-I.htm
    6. This other one proved to be a rather good PSU, under any respect: http://www.lelong.com.my/cooler-mast...-02-Sale-P.htm

    Hope this helps.
    Best, Luca

    Hi Thanks for the quick response,

    I was looking at sub RM300 PSUs and was wondering if they are any good (good enough for my usage):

    Cooler Master CM Elite V2 550W
    Cooler Master CM B2 500W
    FSP HYPER MODULAR 500 Watts *80P SILVER
    Corsair VS550
    ThermalTake Litepower

    Else, I'll just save up the extra RM100+ and get the CM V550 or Superflower Leadex Silver II 550w

    Thanks again!
