Well get a 550W then, as I already said there is no need for more useless watts. Typical game load will be around 60-65% for a high-end gaming PC with one graphics card on a 550W PSU.

Set aside it's not clear about which reasons these desired ratios are backed, as said by The Mask with a 550W unit your expected average gaming load ratio should be around 65% with an Intel based rig and a 980ti-class power envelope (and around 55% with a 980-class power envelope), and so around 55% (45%) with a 650W PSU, and around 50% (40%) with a 750W unit.

Eventually I agree that you wouldn't need a larger than 550W PSU, though obviously YMMV depending of the specific game, actual OC and specific CPU/GPU: but if you feel more comfortable at throwing some money out of the window, feel free to do what you think best, definitely it's up to your call (and pocket).

The last question, bq dark power pro 11 is good? I have come to my attention that not as much as version 10. In comparison to those mentioned earlier something special to stand out?


so-so I look on eXtreme Power Supply Calculator, and after completing the data recommended me 750w psu that is probably lying

Yes the be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 are good PSU's, only not as good overal as the Corsair RMx series.

About those PSU calculators, we call them random number calculators.

The P11 is a good PSU: the 550W main strength is the quietness (it's also slightly more efficient than Gold units, saving maybe 3-4W more at your expected power draw), the main weakness is that it's comparatively way overpriced (+50% over quoted Gold units in EU).

The only decent reviews I know about the P11 550W are in german, from ComputerBase and TweakPC, though there should be at least one in english, from UK-based KitGuru (atm I don't like them that much, but this is just my own personal opinion).

True, RMx´s are beating pretty much everyting at their price range.

The only true competitor are EVGA G2 units IMHO.

The big problem would be if the were sold at the same price. I believe that the P11 would benefit by greater efficiency. The sucess of this Rmx is sales price. Evga g2 have the noisiest cooler, considering only Rmx / Rmi / G2 / P11.

Of course... and the ROI for greater efficiency is quite questionable. What it comes down to is how that better efficiency translates into the PSU running cooler and preventing the fan from running as often/as fast.

I know that you want to advise the best solution in terms of value and the price for which I thank you ... but all of the pc components already purchased and the purchase of power supply left me 180 euro (+/-20 euro) and the amount I have to spend .
So which power supply would be best in this budget?
I know that this can be very cost-effective approach but I have so much and so many have to spend

You can't go wrong regardless whether you choose a Corsair RMx (*or RMi for digital monitoring ), or a Seasonic Platinum PSU.
Perhaps Corsair will guarantee you less noise, while the Seasonic will guarantee you better efficiency.
So if you need a PSU as much silent as possible, go for Corsair (*or BeQuiet Dark Power11). If you are not that much noise-sensitive (*personally i don't care about few db more ), go for Seasonic.
