    Default Need help choosing PSU

    guys.. I have i5 2500, R9 270x, 8 gigs DDR3, 1 TB HDD, 2 80mm fans
    my old PSU is thermaltake litepower 500, I want to change this to other budget PSU

    this is the list:
    Corsair CXM Series 450W (out of stock)
    Antec NeoECO II 450W - 80+ Bronze Certified (out of stock)
    FSP Hexa + II 500W (ready)
    FSP Hydro 500W (ready)
    be quiet! PURE POWER 10 400W - 80+ Silver Certified (ready)
    Enermax RevoBron 500W (ready)
    Seasonic S12II-520 520W - 80+ Bronze Certifie (out of stock)

    which one should I buy? if it's out of stock should I wait or buy the ready one?

    Why would you even consider the ancient S12II thing? That's group regulated, has a bad protection IC so it really isn't a great unit.

    From the rest the Pure Power 10 400W seems like a good option...

    It's not worth the 200€ or whatever you have to pay for it. For half the price it would be OK, but for THAT amount of money, a 4 core CPU without SMT is just bullshit.

    Get a Ryzen 5 with 6 cores instead...
    That's the way better option than the overpriced Intel...
