    Default what power supply should i buy

    hello guys im new here but i personally always read reviews from jonnyguru.
    I hope you guys can guide me in this matter, my situation is this im looking for a new power supply and my budget is very adjust at the moment,however in my country there is no too much options in terms of power supplies.
    this is my setup:
    -I7 8700k
    -Motherboard Aorus Elite Z390 (this mob need 8+4 pins to start )
    -Corsair H75 WC
    -GTX 1070 TI Asus Strix 8gb Advanced
    -16gb Gskill Trident z RGB 3200mhz
    - SSD 240gb Corsair neutron gtx
    - HDD 2tb Toshiba 7200RPM
    - Case Corsair 400r
    - 4 more fans

    i'm planing to do O.C but not too much just for test my pc, I was seeing sources of power from 550w to 750w I think it would be enough but I'm not sure, in some stores I can find some corsair, coolermaster, evga and seasonic, I currently have in my sights a seasonic 750w Fx plus gold and an Evga 650w gold G1, I have seen some Evga 850W BQ but I do not know much about that model, I will be grateful for all the suggestions
    any help is welcome, thank you very much

    Don't get the BQ. It's not good.

    By "FX Plus Gold", are we talking about the Focus?

    You don't need 750W, BTW. Nowhere near. 550W is more than enough.

    Do you have some links to stores in Chile you can share with us so we can help you shop?

    those are all the models i can find with 2 cpu connectors.

    In this link we can find all the components that are currently in stores in Chile, it's like a google with prices and store, but as you can see, there are not too many options. I am very grateful that you have answered me.
    I'll wait for your answer please:

    are you getting a motherboard with 2 x cpu connectors? you dont really need 2, it wont use them....as far as i have read anyway.
    going higher than a 6/12 cpu and ocing with liquid nitrogen...2 cpu connectors may be needed...
    i dont know whether the load is shared between the 2 cpu power connectors?...is that a factor? i'm just asking.

    You sure? Normally a motherboard like this should work fine with an 8 pins EPS, the extra 4 pins ATX12V is only needed for extreme overclocking.

    and well i guess my best option is the seasonic focus plus right? What aboutcougar cmx?
    If the motherboards has enough on a 8 pins EPS then the Seasonic Focus Gold 550W or Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W.

    Or if you want to keep the cost down, the EVGA GD 550W is also an option.
