    Default PSU advice needed

    Hello guys, I am in need of some guidance to purchase a new PSU for my first built PC which the process was nerveracking but everything went fine until the second day the PSU decided to blew up, it was a EVGA 450BT. I went to the store right after it blew up but they are trying to push blame on me because they said my system drew more power that the before mentioned PSU could give or there was a power surge, etc. This whole process has been shivers and cold sweats even more now that I think I fried all my new components. (the rgb of the mobo and the orange led that I think tells that the mobo is getting power were working fine after the incident)

    Link to the store below, its on spanish but you can navigate through the pages and see the models just fine. (the ones that says "agotado" are sold out").

    Im kind of burdened to buy in this store because in my despair after the incident I wanted to test if my system didn't burn whole so I bought a PSU that I didn't open so I could return it monday because I realized my mistake of buying a shitty PSU. I just want a good or decent given the choices PSU that is not going to blow up on me. I'am so sorry for asking so much help and wasting your time but I would thank you from the bottom of my heart if you could help me.

    System specs

    Case: NZTX 340s (two fans)
    CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 (stock speed)
    Motherboard: ASUS Strix b350-f gaming
    GPU: EVGA NVidia GeForce gtx 1050ti
    RAM: Corsair vengeance lpx 2x4gb 2400 mhz
    HDD: Seagate barracuda 1tb 7.2k rpm
    PSU: EVGA 450 BT

    Outervision PSU wattage calculator said it was around 320w so I though I was fine with the 450 BT but aparently not, now I'm willing to go much higher (not as much as a EVGA 1000w GQ, that would cost me like 220 dollars for a light gaming pc ), again I'm sorry for asking so much.

    The people at the store are idiots, and you bought a shit PSU... That machine will struggle to draw 150w, maybe 200w, let alone 320w...

    Your best option is probably the EVGA GD 450w: https://www.spdigital.cl/products/view/60560

    As shown from these reviews
    GTX 1050 ti Power consumption@tomshardware
    Ryzen 1600@tweaktown
    The overall power consumption can vary to 154-160w(+ and - depending on storage numbers and other 12V dependent peripherals)
    So as awesomegamer919 pointed out,your best option is the EVGA GD 450W,although if you do not mind spending 10 more euros you could get the 550w version.
    I am where all the magic smoke is.

    Thank you so much for replying guys, my top choices after reading the forums for a while were the EVGA 450-550 gd, the thermaltake thoughpower grand rgb and the riotoro onyx, but I'm going to go with your suggestion. Thank you so much for your advice.
