    Well, this is XFX we're talking about. Who else would the OEM be?

    From what I understand its the same platform as this https://www.jonnyguru.com/blog/2017/...-power-supply/ but is gold not platinum. It has a 5 year warranty so at least the manufacturer has some trust in it. Granted, iirc a thermaltake smart has a 5 year warranty so that doesn't mean an awful lot.
    According to the pictures it's a SG700G. I haven't seen that one before, GPx00G is the one you always see. GPx00G is always an interesting option in east Europe for example. But I don't know the difference between SGx00G and GPx00G. GPx00G is by the way not the same as Platimax D.F., it's similar, but the GPx00G is downgraded.

    Both the description and URL says GP. ODD.

    Assuming its the GP model, it could handles something like a 5600xt?

    Segotep GP700G 600W is a good budget/mainstream option for a PC with RX 5600 XT. So if it is a GP700G it's probably the best PSU you will find for 50 dollars or less on Newegg, not counting any rebate.

    Okay, sounds good. I'll pick one up then.

    I hope its the GP700G, if it is the SG700G I might open it up to see what's the differences.

    If you open it, you will lose your warranty.

    Deal fell through on the 5600xt, got a 1070 instead. More efficient so I could have gotten a slightly more inexpensive PSU in theory, but whatever.

    So it came today. A bit dented thanks to fedex doing what they do best, but not too bad.

    Manual says GP series but the unit has the SG-700G model number written on it. ill have to open it here shortly.

    Looking through the grille it looks like the GP I saw a picture of before.

    If the specs are right it will be no problem at all. Primary caps don't die because old age, if they die it's mostly because the voltage got to high. So if it's a 450V one, the chance of failing is almost zero. If it's a 400V it could be a problem, if you're on 120V and the voltage is sometimes quite above that.
