Quick input for budget PSU
Hey all, my buddy has requested I throw together a (really) budget build for him. I've got all other components selected, but I am a bit torn on the PSU. I've narrowed it down to two choices: Seasonic 650W 80+ bronze
and a Rosewill ARC 650w 80+ bronze
. I've never purchased either brand so I don't have personal experience with them. The Rosewill one has more ratings, but I don't know if the quality will suffice. I've heard Seasonic PSUs are good quality, but I have not used one. What do you guys think? Also, if there are any recommendations outside of these two I would greatly appreciate it. Heads up, the PSU would need to be below $50.
One of the reviews for the Seasonic PSU claims it's not actually made by them, but rather outsourced by RSY. Not sure who that is but I think I may have my answer.
