    Default PSU dilemma

    Hello guys, i am sort of following this forum for years and i never actually made an account... which is sort of weird...so here i am... with a question naturally.

    Now, i have a dilemma regarding new PSU i am intending to buy for my PC.

    My current hardware is:

    - i5 3570K (will probably be replaced by Ryzen 2600 or similar in upcoming months)
    - RX 580 XFX 8 Gb VRAM (recently obtained)
    - 16Gb of DDR3, 1600Mhz (will be switched naturally for DDR4)
    - 2x1Tb WD Blue HDDs and 512Gb SSD by Intel
    - couple of 120mm fans, nothing fancy

    Currently all of this is working on 7 years old Chieftec CTG-500-80P, which might not be the best idea obviously

    Now certain company in my country decided to give me a refund for some hardware i sent to RMA which they couldnt fix or replace, and i have about 10.000 in local currency to waste on new PSU, but i have to do it in their shop.

    Their site is (links to fans and PSUs): https://www.emmi.rs/konfigurator/pro...categoryId=219

    And i was somehow personally fond of FSP, something like lets say: https://www.emmi.rs/napajanja-i-doda...roductId=79678

    Now what would you guys suggest i take from that shop, amount of options is not that great. Raidmax which i would likely skip, some SAMA models which i do not know much about and bunch of random stuff like that Kolink.

    Thanks in advance for advice.

    FSP Hexa85+ 650W is also a good budget PSU for it's price.

    These two are good choice, both are available on emmi.rs. Don't get the FSP Hyper M, it's worse and more expensive.

    I assume HEXA is abit better built due to being FSP compared to SAMA?

    Also da Hell, SAMA has their .ltd domain suspended

    Both SAMA and FSP have everything, from really low-end stuff till high-end stuff. Only the best FSP is probably better then the best SAMA. But the difference between this two isn't that big. But I guess I would take the SAMA.

    I assume more powerful Sama Armors are Just upscaled design if that same PSU? Or they are completely different?

    I am simple man, i like big numbers

    Only thing that worries me is the warranty which is 3 years on sama yet certain FSP series got 5, like Hammer.

    And yea as you said its all about tier, friend of mine got FSP HYDRO for his build, looks like extremly solid piece.

    They are indeed the same design with some components minor changes so that it can deliver 750W. Which makes quite uninteresting. I mean if you really need 750W you probably should infest a bit more in a higher quality power supply. So just go with the 550W and don't make the rookie mistake of choosing quantity over quality.

    FSP Hammer is a lot cheaper to make and the performance is also a lot worse. It really is an uninteresting PSU. The reason FSP can give it 5 years warranty it's because it's cheap to make, so the margin is probably higher.
    And yea as you said its all about tier, friend of mine got FSP HYDRO for his build, looks like extremly solid piece.
    Well it certainly isn't, FSP Hydro M is something to avoid for a new PC, just like the Hammer series.

    FSP HG750 was in question, it looked like very decent purchase to me.

    Well i Will probably go for Sama in this particular case

    That's indeed a totally different power supply. The FSP Hydro G 750W is a really good high quality power supply.

    Weird question now, are these two PSUs the same?

    http://www.monitor.rs/napajanja/750W-FSP-HYDRO-G-750

    and https://www.emmi.rs/napajanja-i-doda...roductId=75614

    According to what i can see on FSP webpage that is same PSU, however one of them is clearly HG750 while other one is just market in webshop as G750W.

    From what i deduced there are two lines, Hydro GE and G, while G being somewhat superior in build quality.
