    You also need to include links to online shops that you're going to use, and your budget unless you want us to choose the cheapest decent one.
    Why does it "look like it's dying"?

    thank you very much for the reply
    does my system will stable with a 550 w psu
    like i said , i was pkanning to buy seasonic focus plus gold,
    but doesn't know the wattage , and if that model is a good one ???
    how about seasonic s12g 550w is that a good psu ???
    s12g is cheaper with 7 years warranty (i think)
    i need advice for a good quality psu .
    note : in 2 month i will build/upgrade to ryzen 5 apu without vga card, but will try to overclock the gpu .
    i can go with seasonic 550 w focus plus gold if that a good quality psu .
    does s12g 650w is over kill for my system ??
    note : my room temp is around 25c-30c .. im in hot country.
    hopefully you guys understand me , english is not my native language, sorry.

    550W is plenty even for a high end system with a top of the line VGA, at least at stock speeds so it should be fine.

    S12G good? yes

    cheaper? yes but 5 year warranty as opposed to 10 on the focus and lower quality, get the FOCUS plus if you can afford it, and for me, the corsair rmx are the best bang for the buck in high end power supplies but focus one from seasonic is pretty good too.

    650W overkill? for a pc with no graphics card yes, if you install a good one in the future no. If you want to upgrade the psu, this is your chance to get a good one

    what country are you from then? I'd help a lot, as well as info regarding your budget

    i live in indonesia
    our country is in rupiah not dollar
    my budget around 1.500.000 rupiah for a good decent psu
    i can force to buy seasonic focus plus gold 550w if i sure enough
    that is a great value for my system & upgrade path ... ??
    perhaps yes , cause i think it will need another 1-2 years more toget vga card at msrp pricing .
    so .... is it 550w willbe enough for atleast 8 hours a day with oc and it have room for future upgrade.
    i hv 2 choice :
    550w focus plus gold
    OR
    650w s12g

    OR MAYBE
    550w s12g

    * for overclock daily 8/24 a day ryzen 5 2400g gpu @ 1500mhz
    im going to build that apu in 2 month without vga card , so i can safe transfer the psu to that system.
    let just say that, i will not upgrade my apu system atleast 2 years , and i dont want to get psu problem again like my old cx-500(3v,5v,12v tester ok, fan spinning but cant make my lga 775 system to boot. already breadboard)

    Antec NeoECO II 450W is a good budget option for it's price. Perfect for your current PC, also fine for the upgrade you're planning.

    Andyson H6 AD-F60GG 600W is also a good option, a bit better quality and performance wise, also more efficient.

    Segotep GP600T 500W is efficiency wise a nice improvement, it has a 80PLUS Titanium certificate, but the quality is probably a bit worse then the Andyson. But it should still work perfect a long time.

    Seasonic G-450 Gold 450W is quality wise then a bit better then the Segotep, but the efficiency is of course lower.

    Last interesting option for you is the Seasonic Focus Plus 550W, mostly interesting because of the 10 years warranty. Otherwise it isn't much better then the others.

    how about if i choose the 500w version of what you pick ,, is that still a good one
    or there is another list for the 500w version ... ???
    i'd like to have atleast 500w/600w/650w psu for future proof(within my budget) , not always have to but its a good room for future proof( and also long life time psu)
