Hi guys

Antec one is cheaper. Is it good enough?

My system will be

i5 7500 which will be upgraded to i7 6700 or 7700 soon
16GB Ram
2080 Super
1 or 2 SSD's on top of HDD
just standard fans from Zalman case

Should I be getting 750W for this sytem or will 650 suffice? if its 750, which one should I get? Is Antec a good brand?

Ideally, for any 2080 you should probably get a 850w power supply. But 750 should be enough.

What PSU models are you planning on getting? You need to be a bit more specific
Oh man. somebody heere told me 650 is enough. Now I am hearing 850

This
Antec EarthWatts EA750G Pro Modular 750W 80+ Gold PSU 0-761345-11621-3


or



Corsair RM750 750W 80 Plus Gold Fully Modular Power Supply


or if 650 is enough then this

Corsair CX Series CX650 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX PSU

Generally your computer will only use what's required depending on load at the time but if you go for a 750 w and your pc uses 450 w while gaming heavily it will be more efficient at about 75 % load etc generally.
While doing light tasks like browsing the internet will use way less . My I5 8600k and 2070 super uses about 110 w on light tasks and 420 w while gaming at max usage . Always good to get a quality power supply since it will put less stress on other components inside the system as well .

Ps to know if a power supply is decent check warranty should be 5 years or more also the 12 v line should be able to supply the max voltage or close to it if it's way less it's a pretty poor PSU
