    Default PSU advice for my new build

    hi folks, i'm building a system for myself so i need a psu.

    my specs are:

    Ryzen 1700

    GTX 1070

    4X8GB DDR4 RAM

    1 SSD & 4 HDD

    im thinking to buy a 550W psu but i'm not sure its enough. i live in turkey but im going to buy from amazon.de. unfortunately they dont send every product to turkey. i chose some that i can get but i'd like to hear any other from you.

    here's that i choose:

    Corsair Vengeance Series 550M - €67

    Corsair CX550M/CX650M - €65/€82

    Corsair RM550X - €95

    Seasonic G-650 - €91

    Seasonic M12-II EVO 620 - €85

    i can go €100 for max.

    thanks in advance.

    Are you planning to overclock your CPU and/or GPU?

    Anyway, you would have enough with 400W. I would automatically discard from the list the CX550M-CX650M (just because Vengeance are the same with some improvements), and the Seasonic M12II 620 (not only expensive, also quite outdated).

    It's more than enough.

    It's ok.

    Doesn't worth a look, the Vengeance costs the same and it's a bit better.

    It's the best PSU of those.

    It doesn't worth a look, as the RMx costs about the same and it's substantially better.

    Too old, solid but an underdog nowadays: too much expensive for what it offers, forget it.

    not the gpu but im not sure about cpu. maybe i'll overclock to 3.7 ghz.

    so there are two left to choose.

    Corsair Vengeance Series 550M - €67
    Corsair RM550X - €95

    is it worth for €30 to buy RM550X?

    It surely worths if you praise quietness, as the RMx is vastly quieter than the Vengeance.

    Otherwise, YMMV, I mean, the Vengeance is good enough to serve you well, so no strict need to spend more money.

    Corsair RM550x is a great option then indeed, it's extremely silent, has great performance and the quality is quite high.

    Not really, and significantly worse noise output.

    You won't find something better for it's price then the RM550x in Germany, because it doesn't exists.
