    Default New PSU for New build

    Building a new rig and was wondering the amount of wattage I needed from a PSU. Because of an emergency I had to spent part of the budget in something else so I'll either need to wait to buy a PSU or buy a mid-range quality one. (Recommendations please!)

    Build is:
    AMD Ryzen 7 1700
    Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K3
    16GB (2x8) DDR4
    1 SSD
    1 HDD (1tb)
    1 RX480 (so far...may upgrade to a RX580 if I can trade it with a friend)

    I'll be OCing the processor probably but I don't think I'll add a second GPU since Crossfire gives very little advantage in my case.

    Edit: Budget is less than $50-60.

    No, those aren't good choices for your PC.

    Corsair TX550M $54,99 after rebate https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16817139210
    Seasonic G-series 550W $49,90 after rebate https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16817151119

    Those are good choices, also more then enough power for overclocking the CPU and graphics card.

    Think I'll get the TX, cuz the Seasonic rebate needs to be postmarked today and I won't be getting it for a few days so...
