I would love to get that psu but I’m not sure if I have the budget. This is my list right now:it should be higher. the PSU feeds and protects the rest of the system. prices have increased lately due to ahem, issues left un-named.
the CX series went from affordable to $100. the CX is my go to budget starting point
Thank you. I’m sticking with the 1660 super though, so what should I do then?I have that unit in a 600W, but it was $25 less than the current 500W when I got it.
I have another compromise you may want to consider. the performance difference between the 1650S and the 1660S is not reflective in the massive price difference (under 20% for 80 dollars).
for the gist, the general idea
you already have parts so I played with the remaining and came up with this.

this PSU has a 10 year warranty and is of very high quality and is more proven than the EVGA GD series from 2019. the SSD size has increased by 8x, a HDD can be added later or a larger drive but 960GB should be fine for a while and much better than the 120GB.
So the regular CX650 is on sale for $70! Should I get this?Yes, it is like seasonic focus plus, maybe a gx-550.
