    Lightbulb Choose a good power supply for about $80

    I am thinking to build a system with Ryzen 5 1600, GTX 1060 6GB, 8GB RAM,
    I think 550W would be pretty good but which power supply to choose is the confusion. There are a lot of power supplies out there and this being my 1st build, I really have no idea about them.

    CX-M, Focus Gold, Focus Platinum, G2, G3, TX-M, others.

    For a Ryzen 5 + 1080, anything in the 450-550W range should do fine. Now, since you said 1080 6GB, I assume you mean a 1060 6GB? (in which case, my answer remains the same.)
    4790K @ 4.5Ghz
    BeQuiet Dark Rock 3 /w 120mm Slipstream LP
    MSI Z97M Gaming
    Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-1866 4x8GB
    MSI GTX1080TI Gaming X
    Mushkin Reactor 1TB
    EVGA G3 550W /w R/B Ensourced Custom Cable Extensions
    Fractal Designs Define C Mini /w 2x GP-14 X2 BLK, 1x GP-12 X2 BLK
    Fiio E10K
    (To many headphones now to list individually, HELP ME. HELP!)

    Is there any difference between CX series and CX-M series except the modular cables?
    I don't need modular cables, and CX-M seem to be a bit costlier.

    The new CX is a bit better, than the new CXM. Only the 450W CX misses the second PEG cable, but other then that it's better.
