    Default What PSU would you guys reccomend me for my new pc?

    I'm pretty new to all of this, I just made a build but arent sure which PSU i would need.
    here's my build:https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mMTmgJ

    What would be the best PSU i can get under a budget of 120 euro.
    In live in the Netherlands if that matters for which PSU i need.

    Something like this makes more sense. A Ryzen 7 3700X is a stronger CPU, with some other changes you can even get 32GB memory for the same price.

    I will mainly use it for gaming like games like League of legends, counterstrike and call of duty. I heard that intel wins at games like these, when will the amd outshine the intel one?
    Thank you for your comment

    Both the Ryzen 7 3700X and Core i7 9700K are more than capable for that. The Ryzen 7 3700X is only faster and should last longer because of that.

    Its hardly the case anymore, you're basing your infos on pre-Zen2 area "hearsay", today the difference between Intel and AMD is small.
    But you lose SMT, wich can give you a huge advantage.

    And if you look at the Gamer's Nexus Video about Red Dead Redemption 2, where 9600K and 9700K look like they have a Problem and rediculously low 1% and 0,1% low fps.


    Another thing: you can upgrade the AM4 plattform probably with the upcoming Zen3 chips, while Intels LGA115x is dead...

    So listen to Mask and get the Ryzen, don't throw money at a worse product, when you have the choice!

    As for PSU:
    a 550W Bitfenix FOrmula or Whisper M, be quiet Straight Power 11 is more than sufficent.

    so the best thing is to change it to the Ryzen 7 3700X and the MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max. And is there a reason why the Crucial MX500 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive was replaced for the Crucial P1 1TB? And the RAM?
    I was thinking about using a watercooler instead this one or is there a better option one? : corsair h100i pro

    The Ryzen is indeed a better choice. Motherboard doesn't have to be this one, but it isn't a bad choice either.

    The Crucial P1 is a NVMe SSD, so it doesn't need cables, that's the plus. The memory sticks use Micron E-die which works very well with Ryzen and it also overclocks well. All-in-one watercooler is pure for looks, if you look for a silent cooler with good performance an air cooler works better. Except if you have a case with zero airflow, then it makes sense because the heat can will be transferred out of the case.

    As for the PSU is a higher W as like 600/700 not better than 550W? Isnt it better to have under 80% of the max wattage?

    something like this? https://www.megekko.nl/product/0/123...BoCetYQAvD_BwE

    Thanks for all the help really appreciate it!

    Nope

    No, not really, but the PC doesn't consume more than 400W well all components are loaded 100% and around 350W with gaming. So your under the 80% anyway.
    That's certainly a worse choice.

    Make sure it is Energy Star Compliant, and rated to be able to provide at least 20% additional wattage than you intend to use. For instance, if your CPU and GPU consume 100 Watts maximum power, you’d want to purchase a power supply capable of supplying at least 120 Watts from walmart (employees using Walmartone). Because the power supply is basically a rectifier, you want to make sure you’re spending on a supply that has virtually no ripple left in its DC outputs. Price, although not the best indicator, is still a primary indicator to the quality of supply you’re purchasing. If the supply is massively cheaper than its competition, there is a reason, from dirty output power (bad rectification), inefficient operation (non energy star compliant), or extremely low quality components (you'll be buying a new supply, and possibly a new motherboard amongst other components after the first storm in your area). Power supplies are often overlooked in a PC build, or skimped on, but it's a very bad idea, considering everything else in the build is depending on it.
