CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 3.7 GHz 12-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S chromax.black 82.51 CFM CPU Cooler
MB: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard
Storage: Two SN750’s a 1tb and a 500gb
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P500A D-RGB ATX Mid Tower Case
GPU: RTX 3080
Memory: 32gb 3600mhz CLC 16


That is my current Spec, and right now I am shopping for a power supply my choice are:

Revolt X 1000w- $229 Platinum 12 Year Warranty, in a nutshell these are the Seasonic Prime
Revolt X 1200w- $242 Platinum 12 Year Warranty, in a nutshell these are the Seasonic Prime

Seasonic GX 850 Gold- $148
Fractal Design ION+ 860w Platinum- But currently sold out everywhere $149.99

I am basing this off of what is in stock, I know for the build above the Revolt X are overkill somewhat NVIDIA recommends a 750w, but I want to go about 20% higher than that based on reviews of the 3080 models spiking the Revolt X's are about 32% above, but PSU's are hard to find and from my research the MSRP is right on the money to what it was in 2018 with the 1200w actually being a hair cheaper than it was, and based on the PSU tier list the revolt x's are rated highly. My first choice was that Fractal one, but I just cannot find it for MSRP, Amazon sellers are wanting like $249 for it and at that price I can upgrade to one of the Revolts.

Anyway are their any other recommendations you have that I can look at? Experience with the above supplies that you can share with me? I would love to hear opinions.

These are solid PSUs, and it is absolutely fine going above-recommended 750W as I usually prefer a range between 700-850W for most gaming/OC build and anything above this is a little overkill for me, but items like Monitor, Power supply.. you don't change time to time. Going with a quality higher wattage power supply unit is always good.

You can find these alternatives as well, if available at your place.

Thank you, I went ahead and went with the Revolt X 1200w Platinum Model.

I had an extra coupon on amazon that saved another $40 so it took the price down to $199, and I figured $200 for a 1200w Platinum is really good considering comparable models go for much more and 750 to 860w models tend to only be $40 to $50 cheaper if you are lucky enough to find them in stock and at MSRP right now. Like you said this PSU should last me several builds and the 12 year warranty is also an added bonus that pushed me over the edge.
