You dont need a 650 watt unless you have a RTX 2080 or higher so a 550 watt is more than enough power
As for the CXM its slightly better than average but not great, on the other hand its far better than your old PSU

Is Best Buy your only option because their selection is not very good and they dont sell Seasonic

Edit: Newegg has an NeoECO 550 Gold for $65 with rebate

When a PC does this... Boots for a second and then shuts off... It's almost always the psu.

Computer tries to turn on, realizes the power source is bad, and shuts off.

Yes, unfortunately Bestbuy is the only option at the moment. Ordering an online item is not an option because the PC has to be up and running immediately. And any 550 watt model you may have seen is not available at my local Bestbuy so it's 650 or nothing.

If you need one right now and Bestbuy is the only option you could do worse than the CX650M

...sorry gents to piggyback on this thread, but about half a year ago, I had exactly the same problem with one of several Antec HPC Platinum 1300w we bought. One fine day, the system wouldn't boot, just fans spinning up very briefly then stop...I changed PSU and everything worked. While the original unit is still under warranty, the normal route for RMA (returning it via the retailer) won't work because the retailer is out of business <> NCIX, here in Canada.

In any case, I emailed Antec Support and also called w/ voice mail messages many months ago - nobody at Antec ever responded. I then opened up a ticket, and...still nothing, per below (I covered personal info etc). Apart from a Better Business Bureau complaint, can you gents think of any other option ? That Antec HPC Platinum 1300w wasn't cheap...

That is the one I purchased. As my answer above states, money was a concern and some compromises had to be made. The replacement will most likely be this model.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair...?skuId=5845214

What is you opinion on this one?
why not go back to MC?

the product page states a 5 year warranty and no receipt needed. i've only bought from/dealt with MC by detroit a few times. i bought a "refurbed" ducky shine zero for $70. it started some double reporting a few weeks later and they let me exchange it for a new one off the shelf. i was pretty stoked to get a $100 keyboard (blue switches FTW!) despite the total ~3 hour drive time.

they'll have a much better selection*. but i understand the time constraint.

*edit: assuming they credit you the ~$40/$50 which am sure they will.

sorry despite my reply above - i am not an "RMA guru". never dealt w/antec. but if i were you i would consider some phone calls that involve actually talking to a person instead of messages/emails. i've never filed anything w/BBB because well, i never expected anything that would resolve my situation in a timely manner.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

Thanks I certainly tried / will continue to try to reach a real human there, just can't seem to find one...anyhow, no more Antec anything for business or home.

MicroCenter is kinda far from my location. Typically I only go there on "shopping days" when I have nothing else to do. I am planning to go back at some point in the near future and will see if they will do something for me in terms of refund/credits.

Thanks guys for all your help.
