    ASUS ROG STRIX B360-G
    HyperX Fury 16 Go DDR4 2666 MHz
    Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT 8G

    For the rest I will reuse my case, etc., for now.

    I live in the middle of nowhere, the nearest place selling power supplies is a guy who repairs computers, he has not got a website and does not get much deliveries at the moment.

    So I can buy from him now what he has in stock or wait (until after summer?) when things will be back to normal, hopefully.

    Regarding the Inter-tech they are very basic models, up to something like 400W if I remember well.
    The Corsair are also the most basic series.
    I considered at some point the Cooler Master MWE Gold (650W also), is that any good?
    The EVGA is gone and he has a client interested in the Fractal Design.

    Does this help?
    Why 650W?
    Core i7 4770K @4.3GHz + iGPU | GA-Z87X-UD4H | 2x8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3@1600MHz
    Prolimatech Armageddon heatsink w/ 2 x 140mm NF-A14 PWM fans
    Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD | WD Black 4TB file disk | WD Red 3TB backup disk
    Fractal Design Define R5 case w/2 x NF-A14 ULN front fans | no exhaust fan; grill removed
    PSU Seasonic X-650 Gold

    I thought it was sufficient to power these components, without running 100%, and would leave me some margin to change/add things if I wanted to.

    Is that bad? Too much or not enough?

    A high quality 450W PSU is the minimum without overclocking.

    So I need a minimum of 450W
    And since I would rather not run it at full power, to minimize noise and maximize efficiency (which seem to be between 50 and 100%), I thought that 650W was a good choice

    That's not how it works. If you want a silent power supply you should buy a silent power supply. If you want an efficient power supply you buy an efficient power supply.

    Do you mean that these are neither silent nor effective?
    What would be a better choice then?

    The best choice always depends on availability and pricing.
    For example if you would look at Komplett, the best choice would be a Corsair RM550x. Efficient, extremely silent and it has a good price.

    I should have explained that we do not buy on the net because deliveries in remote areas like ours is always a nightmare.
    In normal circumstances I would go shopping when I visit a big city, but in this instance I have to rely on this local guy.
    One can try to "order" stuff through him, and if he is in good mood that may work, although it would take some time.
    I could always ask: would this Corsair RM550x be the best choice (it is already 1200kr on komplett)?
