    Default OLD Seasonic replacement - PC upgrade

    Hello, I would like to upgrade my PC soon and replace my good old Seasonic X-560 GOLD (SS-560KM) which is 11 years old.


    Specs:
    MB: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite
    CPU: Ryzen 7 3800X > Ryzen 9 5900x/5950x
    CPU cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports DUO (2 fans)
    GPU: MSI RTX 2070 Super Gaming X > RTX3080/RX6800XT/6900
    RAM: 32GB(2x16) G.Skill Ripjawsx 3600 CL16
    SSD m.2: ADATA XPG SX8200 pro 1TB
    SSD: Micron 1300 1TB
    SSD: Crucial MX500 1TB
    SSD: Micron 1100 256GB
    HDD: Toshiba 1TB 7200rpm
    FANS: 2x120mm, 1x140mm
    USB devices: 6-8
    PSU: Seasonic X-560 GOLD(SS-560KM)

    Bugdet: 200euro?

    I was thinking about a Seasonic Prime unit. Something with GOLD, Platinum or Titanium efficiency, but PSU turining off problems with new RTX cards bothers me a bit. To be honest I don't want my new PSU to be lower class than my current. This Seasonic survived few PC confiigurations so I trust the company, but I'm open for any recommendations. I live in Poland but buying from european amazon is not a problem.
    Sorry for my english. Thank you for your time.

    Edit: Would be nice if there's an option to avoid coil whine.

    Get a good quality 750/850w with multirail design. Something like be quiet! Straight Power 11, Corsair HX V2 or Enermax Revolution D.F.

    Sorry, I forgot to set my bugdet. Is 200euro enough for good PSU these days?

    I'd wait for the release of new AMD components before any accurate recommendation can be made. Could be that your current one is enough (for RTX it indeed isn't).

    Would be nice if there's an option to avoid coil whine.
    Cannot be guaranteed sadly.

    Thanks, I think I will wait for next year. PSU prices are much higher than in the first half of the year.

    Yes, Black Friday and then Christmas/Holiday shopping fever will mean prices in general won't be great until it's all over.

    Price depends on the brand. If you want Corsair you pay more but if you get similair quality like Enermax Revolution D.F. for exemple you pay a normal price. https://www.amazon.de/-/pl/dp/B07P6Q...s%2C191&sr=8-1
    https://www.amazon.de/-/pl/dp/B07THV...4320637&sr=8-2 is also a great choice.
