    Default Help with PSU Upgrade

    Hello all just registered after some browsing. Iíve been contradicting myself on a PSU upgrade. Thereís way to many brands and models to choose from and Iím looking for some recommendations on some decent ones for gaming. I currently have a Thermaltake 600w Smart 80+ White. When I built my pc last year I didnít do any reading in it and now all I see is horror stories. I just started finally really using my computer for more demanding games so I feel I need an upgrade any recommended PSUís will help. I have a budget of $100. Here are my PC Specs

    ASRock B450M Pro4 MOBO
    Crucial P2 M.2 1TB 3D NAND NVME SSD
    Ryzen 5 2600x CPU
    Crucial Ballistix Sport 16gb DDR4 3200 Ram
    Thermaltake 600 80+ ATX PSU
    Asus ROG Strix GTX 1660 Super GPU

    You don't need more than a good 450 watt...they just don't make really good 450 watt.

    be quiet! Straight Power 11 450w is a very good one but not available in the USA. Another option is https://www.newegg.com/super-flower-...5109-_-Product

    Low-end, mid-range, high-end, enthousiast? What's the range you're looking at?

    Iíd say mid range or high range because I do plan to upgrade some parts in the future, and yes just an enthusiast. The $100 budget is flexible. Itís not gonna break the bank to go over a tad

    $100 should be more than enough, especially if you wait till Black Friday. A high-end PSU between 550W and 750W should be fine. The early named Fractal Design ION+ is a good PSU, but there are many more, it just depends on the prices Friday.
