The 650W NZXT HALE90 for 99.18 inc. VAT

Again though, you can spend even less by going with a good 550W PSU. I'm just letting you know.

If you'd rather have a black PSU, then there's the 650W SeaSonic G Series for 97.98 inc. VAT

The 80+ Certification doesn't mean as much as the marketing wants you to believe.

The lower the cost of the PSU, the sooner you'll have it. What do you think about the 650W NZXT HALE90? It's a very high-end PSU and it has a beautiful white finish.

Or, the 650W SeaSonic G Series?

In my very humble opinion Kbrady 1979 selection of
SeaSonic X650 Gold is a very good choice.
When saving money on a computer the power supply is not the place to do it.
Everything else runs off the power supply. It's the Heart of the computer.

See jonnyguru.com for all your PSU info needs.

TwoCables is hung up on being efficient, I'm still not sure, I went big myself at the time.

I had room to grow, even if I get degraded performance expected over time from PSUs.

Now almost 3 years later on my Corsair TX850, no issues, clear it's fan of dust occasionally.

Safety tip:
CompTIA's A+ info tells you, don't repair PSUs, just replace, they can kill you, if opened and mishandled.

I recommended the X650 because of the quality of the PSU AND the quality of the all black modular cables......it's a little more, but well worth it.
