    I have a 1060 and a i5-6600. I know 650W is kind of overkill for that, but I'm just buying a 650W PSU in case I want to upgrade in the future.

    You sure you're gonna need 650W in the future? You can power two GTX 1080's in SLI with an overclocked i7 8700K with a good 650W power supply.

    Your current PC with a GTX 1060 and a i5 6600 will only take around 225/250W out of the PSU under full load.

    You do make a fair point. Quick question, is the Seasonic Prime Ultra 650W 80+ gold's fan in any way noisy? I was doing some research on the PSU itself and noticed videos about how the fan's noisy.

    Don't look at the brand, but look at the PSU and the price.
