    It's not the best buy ATM. I think you should consider the Mask's suggestion.

    But in shop i posted they cannot get me those 2.Idk why are those even on site.Chief is giving me 45a for both cpu and gpu,its 80% eff so it like 430 w for both.My cpu is not using above 100w so there is plenty of power for my gpu.Thats why i wanted that chief that they can get me in 2 days.

    It's a shitty PSU.

    Shop elsewhere if that's the best option where you're shopping.

    Can u give me more info why is it a shitty one? Cause mask's 2 that he posted are total overkill for my config.Like 150w more power that i dont need.

    You shouldn't only be looking at wattage. Wattage is not what makes a PSU better. Yes, those PSUs are higher wattage, but they're QUALITY BUILT. It's like if you bought a Yugo. Yeah, it seats four. But how long is that car going to last. A Honda Civic Coupe only sits two comfortably, but at least it will out last the Yugo.

    The Chieftec GPC-600S is a 230V only, double forward, no DC to DC PSU filled with questionable brand capacitors and a sleeve bearing fan. It's only slightly better than what you already have.

    The lower you go in price, the shittier the PSU gets.
    ~500W PSU go from like 20 to 120 with a fan and up to 200 without.

    Same with your drill, you can get something for like 20 or so or something for 200 or even more than that.
    The reason is more obvious there: stronger plastic for example the more expensive ones should be fiber glass reinforced. So even if you move your car over it, it might not break.

    Its similar for PSU as well. You have different kinds of how to buld a PSU, different quality parts.
    The most obvious is the fan. THe cheap ones have a fan that cost next to nothing and also last as long.
    The good ones have a fan that should outlast the unit.

    And with cheap PSU you get a cheap piece of junk in most cases that should be avoided at all cost as it has shitty voltages, bad voltage regulation, protections are also mostly not there.

    In short: If you want to keep your stuff longer, you listen to us.
    If you do not care about the components and don't mind them beeing killed sooner rather than later, it doesn't matter...

    Yes they are overkill, but the reason for the recommendation is based on quality, performance and price, not on power. If for example a FSP Hexa 85+ 450W was available I would recommended that one, but you don't have that option. Your options are just really limited and those two are the cheapest ones that are recommended for a PC like yours.

    Edit: is this site an option?

    If the RX 570 (and future graphics card) only needs one 6 pins PEG connector the 350W is enough, otherwise get the 450W version.

    It's a totally different PSU, not an interesting one. The ones I named are really the cheapest interesting ones you find on emmi.rs. But is gigatron.rs an option? See my edit.
