A 750 watt is way overkill for a system with a single GPU and as said the Seasonic Focus Gold is better bang for buck
I would make the the suggestion to drop the M.2 SSD as the drive is held back by software limitations which means its just as fast as a SATA SSD in the real world

The drive will only be faster in synthetic benchmarks or if you use Linux
For Windows users its completely pointless as its just as fast or slow as a much cheaper SATA SSD

Linus made a video about load times in games and they tested both an M.2 and a SATA SSD and load times where exactly the same in all tests and games
Drop the MX300 and spend money on something else.

Those Geils look like Hynix or if lucky Micron memories (correct me if I'm wrong) Corsair LPX is a lottery. If you can, I'd squeeze some extra money for Samsung. Hynix is rather pain to overclock and Micron is just a little bit better.

How much watts should I look for? 650, 550? I'll look for that linus video. I'm using too smaller SSDs (128gb and 256gb) I want to cut those out and use one big one. I may just look for another SSD over the M.2.

The RAM is already overlock at 3200. I do not plans to push it far than that.

650 watt is more then enough as long as you only have a single GPU.

I'm just surprised you're watercooling a Ryzen 5 and using a MSI B350m Mortar. Please be sure to give that VRM heatsink airflow.

650w Seasonic Focus is a good bet as stated above.

750 watts isn't "way" overkill for a system like this. If you really start to push the overclocks on a ryzen cpu and the amd 390, you can start sucking a fair bit of power.

If you were to fully stress the gpu and cpu, you would be hitting around 400 watts from the wall. With everything else he has, its a total power consumption of 450w. Thats at stock. Overclocked he could be seeing figures closer to 500 watts with power spikes up to 600 watts.

I would agree that a decent 650 watt psu would be plenty sufficient, but 750 watts is not as overkill as you might think.

Its levels of efficiency so does it matter to you?
