Hi everyone.
Is this PSU enough for this system:
Ryzen 5 2600 ( https://www.pcgarage.ro/procesoare/amd/ryzen-5-2600-34ghz-box/ )
RX 480 Saphire NITRO+ 8GB ( https://www.emag.ro/placa-video-sapphire-radeontm-rx-480-nitro-oc-8gb-gddr5-256-bit-11260-01-20g/pd/DTK8X2BBM/ )
16GB Ram ( https://www.pcgarage.ro/memorii/corsair/vengeance-lpx-black-16gb-ddr4-3200mhz-cl16-dual-channel-kit/ ) Sorry for the links, I was to lazy to search for them on Amazon.
GIGABYTE B450M DS3H ( https://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-de-baza/gigabyte/b450m-ds3h/ )
And some USB ports, for mouse, keyboard basic stuff ya know.
PSU: https://www.pcgarage.ro/surse/segotep/gp600p-500w/
You can see the specs on the bottom of the page. Or just translate the page to your language. :D
Thanks for help.

A quality "500W" PSU would have no problem with that setup.

That specific PSU though... I'd avoid unless there were any reliable reviews confirming it's quality.
At 262 RON (roughly $60 USD?), I can't help but feel there's better options out there.

There;s the SeaSonic S12II 520W and, while older, is a known good unit (even if dated at this point) for pretty much the same money:
https://www.pcgarage.ro/surse/seasonic/s12ii-520-bronze-520w/

If you had exactly that amount to spend, and not anything more, then I'd jump on the S12II ahead of the Segotep.

There is a SuperFlower "Bronze King" 550W for 250RON and a 450W "Amazon" for 238RON.
SuperFlower are predominantly an OEM, but they make some quality units. I don't know if I'd be confident enough to recommend them for someone else to use.... but I'd have enough confidence to run one myself, for what that's worth.

It is 262 RON because is 50% off, the normal price is 115$.
So you recommend me the Segotep?

There is NO WAY that unit is worth $115. Even discounted, it doesn't strike me as a great choice.

To be clear, i DO NOT RECOMMEND the segotep. I'd recommend the S12II 520W or the SuperFlower 550W of the options mentioned thus far.
Ok I Don`t wanna annoy you anymore. Choose the best:
Seasonic one SunFlower one.

Don't worry, you're not annoying.... I just wanted to be clear, as I assume part of my first response was lost in translation, perhaps?

Of the two, I'd lean towards the SeaSonic as I know it's a good quality unit, just an older platform.
I doubt you'd go wrong with the SuperFlower though.

I wanted the 115$ one, because idk anything about SuperFlower, and I know SeaSonic is an old one. Sooo, I will buy the SeaSonic one. Thanks for the help.
Cheers!

SuperFlower are predominantly an OEM for others these days, and make quality units.
They're the OEM behind the likes of EVGA's G2/P2/T2. They do have budget offerings (EVGA's B3 & BT lineup), but even those, I'd trust more than most other 'cheap' units.

The SeaSonic is a safe bet. Older, but safe. The SF one would be fine too, I'm sure of that. Both much better options that the segotep at either price.
 
I'm a little surprised that Segotep has a PSU that has the 80 Plus Platinum logo. Segotep is on the "wall of shame" in the write-up (first link in my sig).

Then again, for a 600W PSU, it only has 492 on the 12V rail, which makes me think it's an older design and not good quality.
Also, the word PLUS on the logo is supposed to have the ® symbol after it, which that PSU does not. That makes me think that it may not have officially even met the standard they're trying to claim.

I would not trust it. It's not worth it at the discount price - definitely not worth it at the regular price.


Which exact Seasonic model? I know there's
S12II
S12III*
M12II

Notice the middle one - Roman numeral 3 instead of 2. If that's the one you find, avoid it - it's not even made by Seasonic, and it's supposedly completely trash.

Of course there's the Focus and Prime, but they will likely be more expensive, and I don't know what the availability is in Romania.

Looks like the ® is there - and the unit is in the database:
https://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80PlusPowerSuppliesDetail.aspx?id=103&type=2

But, of course that's one (potentially handpicked) tested example.... and from September 2014, so the platform is at least ~6 years old.

I was the one who recommended the SeaSonic - and it's the S12II, as at least a known quality unit for roughly the same price, albeit aged.

Have you seen any reviews on the S12III yet? I still haven't... nothing worthwhile anyway.
It's outsourced, but SeaSonic are still comfortable to have their name attached to the product. Personally, I'd use an S12III in my own system, but I'm hesitant to recommend to others unless/until it's proven decent in reviews. The fact there's still no real reviews on them months after launch, is extremely concerning.

Ah, this was the picture, from the site that OP linked to, that I was looking at:
https://2.grgs.ro/images/products/1/986897/996517/full/gp600p-80-plus-platinum-500w-edd902003297de34b38500790b84988f.jpg

Definitely not there in that photo. But since they did get the test certification, I'm a little concerned about the incorrect logo on the photo for this unit.

And that's what I get for not staring at the ii closely enough LOL

None personally - just the bit from Darkbreeze's writeup regarding being built by RSY, and the build quality and reviews not being good.
I might use a questionable unit such as that in a system that is only being used as a test-bed, or at least not being a regularly used, primary PC. I agree with you, though; I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else, though, unless solid information shows up to prove that it's better than we think.

Very strange. Wonder if it's a printing thing? It's there on the box, but not the unit itself in this pic:


Not that it matters anyway, nobody should be buying it to begin with.

😂 "Professional" PSU for "Gamers".... Pick a lane Segotep!!!
