Hey,
My PC specs are - Ryzen 5 3600, MSI mortar max B450, 2X8GB corsair lpx vengeance 3200mhz, Seagate Barracuda 1Tb, Transcend 110s 128GB SSD, Coolermaster MasterAir MA410P cooler, LG 22MK430H_B 22 inches, MSI gtx 1650 super Ventus xs and Thermaltek light power 550w.

I am from Bangladesh, and we have a pretty frequent powercut especially during summer, I use my pc for gaming and video editing, If the power goes, I want to use UPS for only safely shut down my pc. Not to use even after powercut, so will a 650VA UPS good for 550 w PSU??

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

That PSU needs to go into the rubbish bin, seriously unless you want it to light your house on fire. I'd also advise on getting a 1KVA UPS, as opposed to a 650VA UPS. I'm from Bangladesh as well and I know how bad the wiring in houses as well as the quality of parts available in the country are...so if you will, invest in a good PSU and a good UPS to protect the rest of your investments and your house as well.

Can't manage that much expense now, need some time to manage, so which want should I do first psu or ups and as you saw my specs suggest me a good ups.

And I never planned for this psu, but after lockdown it was only available at Ryan's. I build it after lockdown.
