    Question Advice on choosing power supply for the upcoming Ryzen 3900X

    Hi! I'm planning to build my first PC since the time of Athlon 64. (I've been out of it for a while) And need help choosing power supply (there is just too many options out there and it drives me crazy)
    Spec:
    Ryzen 3900x
    Motherboard x570 (if prices are too ridiculous then ASRock - X470 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard)
    Nvidia 2070 super or rx5700xl
    2x8 DDR 3200mhz 14CL
    2TB 7200RPM
    512GB p1 crucial nvme ssd
    (I would like to be able to play with overclocking on both GPU and CPU but sticking to budget is more important)
    I currently have max 100 euro left for my PCU.
    I will attach some options I found and would love your input. BTW I'm based in Spain

    https://www.pccomponentes.com/nzxt-e...odular-digital currently on offer for 99,90
    https://www.pccomponentes.com/therma...d-full-modular 89.99
    https://www.pccomponentes.com/nforte...d-full-modular 99.90
    https://www.amazon.es/dp/B06W9G6H11/..._-DHhDbGCB4WE8 85.00
    https://www.amazon.es/dp/B06WLHSQ6G/..._qGHhDbFQ3TE96 96.99
    https://www.amazon.es/dp/B01JP77ZLK/..._0GHhDbVVYBYJY 79.94
    https://www.amazon.es/dp/B0728D9NL3/..._QHHhDbW763WKY 89.99

    Are any of these something I should go for or I'm completely out of my depth here and should just give up

    Thanks for any and all help in advance

    The Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 650W is a good option for 90 euro's.
    https://www.pccomponentes.com/therma...d-full-modular

    It uses a the GPU platform from Channel Well Technology (CWT), just like the Corsair RMx 2018 and BitFenix Whisper Gold.

    The Nfortec Sagitta RGB 1050W is something you really wanna avoid.
    Looking at the internal pictures here: https://elchapuzasinformatico.com/20...agitta-review/
    It looks like a low quality, low performance 600W power supply with 80PLUS or 80PLUS Bronze certification. There is zero chance this is a 1050W power supply with 80PLUS Gold certification, that clearly is a big fat lie.

    Thank you for quick reply do you think 650W is enough for this specs or should try to save some money on other parts and get something better? if I get navi card then I should have around 50 euro extra. Is it even worth spending more on power supply? It's mostly a fun project for me I will probably never use the full potential of this PC but I want to treat myself to something outrageous (at least for me)

    A high quality 650W should be enough for a PC like this, including some graphics card and/or CPU overclocking. Also spending ~150 euros on a power supply won't get you a much better power supply. Sweet spot is around 100 euro's if you look for a 550/650W PSU.
