I've put together a PC for my less tech savvy friend. The only thing I have doubts about is the PSU and whether or not it will be ok for OC-ing this Skylake and ok in general.
Take note that this system will never use any kind of SLI-Crossfire GPU setup and the only thing that might change in future is the GPU, which might be upgraded next year when polaris and pascal come out.
1. We are from Bosnia and Herzegovina. PSU choice and pricing isn't that great here, so CM V650S 650W caught my eye because it was in "Tier One" on Tom's Hardware PSU tier list and the price was most affordable among those in that tier.
2. When converting this PSU original price to US $, it costs 142$, however, considering how expensive stuff is here, thats the cheapest one in that "tier". On newegg its 100$. It's this one.
3. Planed configuration is as followed:
AMD R9 380 4GB Sapphire NITRO
1 TB Caviar Blue HDD
128 GB Samsung Pro SSD
4. The alternatives to mentioned PSU are following:
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GS 650W (136$),
XFX Pro 650W Modular Edition 80 PLUS Bronze (128$) and
BE QUIET! Dark Power PRO 10 650W (188$)
What do you think about the PSU and the mentioned alternatives ?
What is the best choice of those 4 PSU's, or are they all similar and I should just choose the cheapest one? Note that those values are much higher here, so I doubt I will chose the "BE QUIET", unless it's far superior to alternatives.
The reason I've only listed 650w models is because my friend may want to get an overkill GPU in the future, so just to be sure, I've left some room for that.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
Edit: Listed possible alternatives.
