Looking for a good 600-650 watt (semi) modular PSU. All help is greatly appreciated!

post #1 of 19

Hello. My question is pretty much as the title states. I don't want it to be too expensive, but I also want a quality PSU...and I am a novice when it comes to PSU selection.

All help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Hi, testudoaubreii. :)

 

So, what store(s) could you order from, and how much would you say is "too expensive"?

 

And if I may ask, why 600-650W? Why not something else like 450-550W or 750-850W, etc.?

It's a computer!

Thank you for replying.

I am looking at NewEgg, but I do have a Best Buy here. Hoping to spend less than $100.

Actually, I think a 500-550 watt may work. I will have an i7 8700/16GB RAM/500GB SSD/1TB HDD/1/GTX 1080. I will not be overclocking or adding a second GPU, at all...if that matters.

Oh yep, a good 550W PSU would definitely be enough for this with room to spare. SeaSonic has a very good new series out now called the FOCUS Plus Gold. The 550W version can be bought for $72.89 after a mail-in rebate.

That's insane. I thought $50-60 full modular Seasonic Focus Plus 650W and 750W was good...

I found the Prime Ultra Gold pricing on Newegg
$65 for the 550W https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817151207
$90 for the 750W https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151206

The $45 550W Focus Plus is the semi-modular unit after $15 MIR
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817151203

$55 750W Focus Plus semi-modular after $20 MIR
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817151201

The key point to remember is the Focus Plus semi-modular seems to carry 7 year warranty rather than the 10 years on the full modular or the 12 year of the Prime units.

It also drops the hybrid fan mode.

Thanks!

Do you have a link to those PSUs? I cannot find them on Seasonic's site or NewEgg for those prices.
