    Default Power Supply recommendation

    This is the link to the local store in my country. I live in Costa Rica. 1 USD dollar = 610 CRC(colones); the currency in the site is all in CRC. It's in spanish but you can see the particular model and some basic info. http://extremetechcr.com/tienda/24-fuentes-de-poder
    I currently have the following parts: i5 4460, 16 GB DDR3@1600 RAM, 160 GB intel SSD, 2 TB Seagate HDD@ 7200, the board is the Asus B85M-G and the PSU is a Thermaltake TR2 600W non certified. It has serve me well for around 3 years now althought I have read many bad things about that unit. I know the system isn't asking that much power to begin with. Anyway, I'm planning to buy a new GPU. I was thinking about an RX570 or maybe the RX580. Could you guys please make a PSU recommendation? I know 500W is enough but those units normally come with low end components and performance. I was considering the Gigabyte PB500 500W but I know very little about PSUs. I have a mid size case from TT.

    Any other shops in your area??
    The PSU they have don't look too interesting.

    Lower end is just shit.
    And I don't know if I should trust the Gigabyte P650B...
    Even if it has DC-DC, I'd say I'd rather not trust.

    Any other Options??

    That's the best shop to be honest. The other one isn't worth mentioning but https://www.intelec.co.cr/index.php?...88_678_485_586

    I've read that the seasonic focus gold is a good unit

    I just want to get a solid one. I can do all the way up to the Seasonic 650W Focus Gold but if any of the other options would perform ok, it would also be nice to save some money because I have to pay for the GPU

    the blind chicken...

    And they have something that seems reasonable:

    Onyx 650W Bronze.

    If its still this, its a good choice:
