    Default Help me to decide which PSU is better?

    Hi guys just a newbie here with building a pc. I'm having trouble to decide which psu is good.

    My pc build plan is:
    Ryzen 5 2600
    MSI B450 Mortar Max
    Team Elite 2x8gb 3200mhz
    Zotac 1650 Super
    Tecware Alpha M

    And for overclocking I don't have a plan about it yet or none at all.

    For my location, I'm living in the Philippines.

    My options right now are: (Php is our currency and USD is just a roughly conversation)
    CM MWE 230V V2 650w (php2750 / $55)
    CM MWE 650w v2 Bronze (php3750 / $75)
    Corsair CXM 650w (php4050 / $81)
    Corsair CX 650w (php4250 / $85)
    Seasonic Focus Gold (php4020 / $80)

    Some might be out of stock so if you could rank them, that will be much appreciated. Thanks!

    You don't need 650w. With a MWE 450w V2 Bronze or Corsair CX450 you have plenty of power.

    Focus > CX > CXM > MWE V2 230V

    Not sure where regular MWE v2 would go, though...

    Ohh about that, the CX and Focus gold only have 650w lowest variant so I made it 650w for all to be uniformed. But still thanks for idea tho.

    Thaaanks for the ranking.

    Btw, the focus gold variant is the FM. Is this one still good? Because I saw something like GX but it is more expensive and kinda out of the budget.

    You should post down the store’s URL so that everyone can help picking up the most appropriate one.

    What will you use this PC for? The spec looks like it can be better optimized.

    There is a CX550M at Lazada for 3845 PHP
    It will be only be 3645PHP at the 12.12 sale.

    There is also the Seasonic S12G 550W(not the outdated M12/S12) for only 4036.50 PHP although it is not modular.

    There is also an EVGA 550 GD for 3584 PHP.

    All of them are at Lazada.

    The CX550M is grey,not the old CX.

    Mostly for gaming but might be for editing as well. Sure man, I will be happy if you have a better specs in mind.

    Btw, here are some websites I'm looking for PSU:
    https://awesome-table.com/-KrkkVbKZR_HZ2x8lsHk/view

    https://dynaquestpc.com/collections/...-500-650-watts

    And the LAZADA app (this is a little bit sketchy so I'm trying to avoid this one as much as possible)

    Ohhh thanks for the heads up but this might be my last option cause I want to build the pc asap and this one is a little bit sketchy.

    Dynaquest also has the CX550M if you don't like lazada.

    https://dynaquestpc.com/collections/...r-power-supply

    Not sure on availability though. That's why I spent over 30,000 PHP on my purchases on Lazada even though it seems sketchy to you.
