Default Advice for new gaming computer.

Specs:

i5-8400
GTX 980
2x8gb DDR4 ram
Cooler Master HAF XB EVO
One Nvme harddrive and one standard SSD
One optical drive
Asus Xonar D1 sound card

The CPU will be left stock and the GPU will be overclocked but not to an extreme level. Brand does not matter to me as I know they are made for those companies and labels slapped on.

Thank you for any help or advice.

I was trying to use that as my guide to make the post. I see now I left out a few things. My motherboard is an ASRock b360 Pro4. Graphics card will be overclocked no more than 10%. I'd like to keep it under $100 but will spend more if I need to. I understand the value of buying a quality power supply as they can last you 10+ years as my last one did. In Helena, Mt USA, using USD, mostly order from www.Amazon.com and www.Newegg.com but if there is a great deal somewhere perfectly fine with using another vendor. Think I've got everything now. Thanks for any help.

Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum 550w would fit the bill nicely. Quiet,compact, fully modular, efficient, and comes in at just $100 with top of the line components.



Other options would be:

BitFenix Whisper M 550w or Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550w. These units are about $12-20 cheaper, and slightly less efficient but have all the other same positive qualities as the Focus Plus Platinum.

Looks great to me. I like that it's Platinum efficient. Thanks for taking the time to help. Good to see Seasonic still makes quality all these years later.
