What you have there is a ~400W system at full load, why do you need/want an 850W PSU?



ps. RMA your HX850

maybe extra watts to overclocking or add another card in future
i live in Iraq so there is no RMA in my country, it takes alot of time to sent it to Europe and sent it back, i want new PSU to replace the old one until they fix it
but i am confusing to select the best one (high quality is very important thing)
need your advice thanks

Well, if i was going to throw money at the problem and hope for the best I'd go with this.

however, you might want to investigate possible root causes;

Power line quality? heat problems? other problems with your rig?

So you want to waste money on the PSU and your electrical bill and get a quite noisy one.
Why?

So a 550W Seasonic G-Series could be a quite good option, if available.

I know we're torturing you, but you simply aren't specific enough.
What Amazon (.com or .co.uk or maybe .de)?
Do you have any shop in Dubai that you can link?

I would RMA your current PSU. It shouldn't have died, and likely won't again.
Or RMA it and then sell it and buy a 500w PSU.

From what I've heard, you may want to spend some money on a line conditioning UPS thing. The only things I've heard about the power in Iraq are horrendous (surges, brownouts, etc. Nothing PSUs like!).

Definitely get a PSU with a full line filter and a TVS diode at the very least.
(The link in the post above this one has one, for instance)
