    Default Another One (in need of a psu advice)

    Hey there, I'm still new to this forum and to PC building. It's been two months now since I started researching, planning, and buying parts, but I'm still baffled of all the PSU options in the market. I understand how important the PSU of a computer is, so I'm asking for suggestions from you experts.


    Specs:

    CPU - Intel i7-8700K

    CPU Cooler - Cryorig H5 Ultimate

    Motherboard - Gigabyte Z390 AORUS ELITE

    RAM - Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200

    Storage - Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive and Samsung 850 EVO-Series 120 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

    GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3 GB SC GAMING

    Case - Fractal Design Define R5 ATX Mid Tower Case


    Main purpose of the build is for music producing and maybe a little bit of video gaming. I am also not planning on overclocking.

    I originally wanted to buy the Seasonic Focus Gold 650 80+ Gold 650W for $91 (Rp.1.280.000), but it's out of stock everywhere. Now, I'm considering buying the Corsair CX650 for $71 (Rp.1.030.000), but am not sure.

    I live in this hellhole called Indonesia btw.

    My budget is around $70 - $94 (Rp.1.300.000 MAX), but if you want to make any suggestions outside my budget range, feel free to do so.

    I also prefer a quiet PSU.

    For reference, the online store I use to buy the parts are called Tokopedia, just search it up on google.


    That's all I have to say, help me choose the best PSU!
    Thank you!

    BitFenix Whisper Gold 550W is a good choice, also enough if you upgrade to a high-end graphics card.
