    Default Choosing a budget PSU for my build.

    My current build is:

    Ryzen 5 2400G
    AsRock B450 Steel Legend
    16gb 3000Mhz Patriot Viper RGB
    240gb Patriot Burst SSD

    I'm planning to buy a bequiet! System Power 9 400w 80+ bronze to power this up and for future single mid-range card (eg. RX 570/580, 1660/Ti, etc.). Will this be sufficient?

    Quick Specs of bequiet! System Power 9 400w 80+ bronze:

    • Rock-solid stability with two strong 12V-rails
    • DC-to-DC technology for tight voltage regulation
    • Multi-GPU support with two PCIe connectors
    • Temperature-controlled 120mm fan reduces system noise
    • Stand-by drain of less than 0.15 watts
    • 80 PLUS® Bronze efficiency (up to 89%)
    • Attractive black sleeved cables
    • Complete suite of top safety features
    • Meets latest Intel® C6/C7, ErP and Energy Star 6.1 guidelines
    • 3-year manufacturer’s warranty
    • Product conception, design and quality control in Germany

    Is this a reliable psu? Will it pair with a mid range card?

    system power 9 is ok/decent budget PSU. wattage wise it's enogh for the rx 570 / 1660TI , and i think it's enough even for the RX 580,though 450w/500w would be safer for the rx 580. if you can wait a little untill you can raise your budget and get the Be Quiet Pure Power 11 400w. it's a little better and it's rated as GOLD.

    I decided to buy the Seasonic Focus Gold 450w 80+ Gold which I think is better because it has 7 years warranty, semi-modular, DC-DC, 80+ Gold Rating and etc. Thank you.

    Warranty is just something you pay for. Longer warranty means a higher price. Selling a crappy PSU with 10 years warranty is also possible, as long as the margin is high enough so you can pay for all the returns.

    it is impossible for jo average such as me to distinguish the reliability of a psu in specific terms outside of the warranty....which for me reduces the risk of a production fault causing problems down the track.

    IF the be quiets are as good as their price suggests (a bit higher to be honest where i am) tacking on a longer warranty is just eating too much into the profits? its a shame. but the reduced risk is worth more than the punt i would take on the higher cost bequiet unts.

    this is just an honest comment from a consumer here.

    You are absolutely correct.

    Most people don't NEED a warranty. Most people don't NEED car insurance (I've been driving for 30 years and the only wreck I was in was when I was 18 and it was the other guys fault). But you're glad you have it when you need it.

    Some can say that it's a marketing "trick", but fact of the matter is... even if a longer warranty does not imply a better build quality, it's still nice to know it's there if you need it.
