    Question How reliable is the Apevia ATX-PR600W Prestige 600W 80+ Gold Certified

    Just like the title says I need help knowing if this power supply is reliable or not. I am choosing between this one or the EVGA 600W BR 80+ Bronze, if the Apevia psu isn't reliable.

    Why can you only chose on of those two?
    What are your full PC specifications?

    Probably because they're trying to buy a potato-est PSU for 50$.
    What are your PC specs, OP ?
    Cheapest PSU from 'okay' category is EVGA BR for 55$. But if you're not powering ultra-cheap build with GTX1650 Super or smth there's basically nothing i can recommend for sub 130$ so you'll really have to raise budget.

    Well, that's not exactly low-power GPU but it's cheap so EVGA BR should be good if you don't intend on upgrading this build soon. Although be aware that this PSU might have coil whine.

    I plan to overclock the CPU and GPU to get better gaming performance out of it, so should I be going 550W or 600W EVGA BR 80+ Bronze PSU?

    Wattage is irrelevant here, quality of PSU is. Also, i've just noticed Antec Neo Eco Zen in stock at Newegg, it would be better choice.

    It's not in stock at Newegg. It's from a 3rd party in Canada that only has a 50% positive score. Also pretty high shipping cost.
