    Default PSU Recommendation for New Build

    Hello, I was hoping to get some recommendation for a PSU for my new build.

    FULL SPECIFICATIONS
    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
    • CPU Cooler: Corsair H150i PRO
    • MOBO: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI ATX AM4
    • RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory CL16
    • STORAGE #1: Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME
    • STORAGE #2: Gigabyte 512GB M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD GP-GSM2NE3512GNTD
    • GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB ROG STRIX
    • CASE: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic ATX Full Tower Case
    • CASE FANS: 6x Corsair LL120 RGB LED 43.25 CFM 120 mm Fan
    • ADDITIONAL: Corsair Commander PRO Link System Control Unit


    OVERCLOCKING
    I have never overclocked before but will be looking to try not going to be going crazy with the overclocks though.

    COUNTRY & STORES
    I live in Western Australia, so my selection of brick and mortar pc stores are not fantastic. I've included some stores below (both local and online):
    1. PLE Computers
    2. Austin Computers
    3. PC Case Gear - unable to pick up - shipping approx. $15-22
    4. MWave - unable to pick up item - shipping approx. $25-30


    BUDGET
    $200 including shipping

    Thank you all very much

    Since your system consumes around 330W or so max load OC, I'd recommend the Corsair CX550 as the best price/performance: https://www.austin.net.au/corsair-cp...t-80-plus.html
    If you desire modularity and a higher quality PSU, I'd get the TXm 550: https://www.austin.net.au/corsair-tx...pply-unit.html

    Thanks!

    Would it be better for me to go with an EVGA Supernova G3 650W? Seems I can get it for $169 (+$31 courier shipping).

    Will that be sufficient for me to do some overclocking?

    Sufficient, yes. Of course. 450W or 550W is sufficient. But not worth it. That's hardly cheaper than an RM650x and besides, the G2 was actually better.
