Best and Affordable Power Supply for Geforce RTX 2070 Super on my Ryzen 7 3700X (8 Cores / 16 Threads 36 MB Total Cache 65 Watts) with ASRock Phantom Gaming 4 X570 Motherboard computer?

A list of good PSU under the budget is good.

Budge range : Less than $110 US Dollars (Before taxes) (Amazon.com or Newegg.com) be fine.


https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/best-psu-affordable-for-geforce-rtx-2060-super-or-geforce-rtx-2070-super.3503578/ I originally asked few months ago, but i decided to hold off a bit while PSU prices seem to be adjusting ...but now its coming closer to Blacks Friday or Cyber Monday is the best time to look get a PSU with RTX 2070 Super. Not a overclocker

That SeaSonic is a great recommendation. This corsair would also work well.

Yea it seem like people on other tech sites are also recommending the
CORSAIR RMX Series (2018), RM650X (650 Watts) more then the EVGA G5 650 Watts and Seasonic 650 Watts...

Are any more PSU options that set at lower cost that can perform and live like the $100 ones.

That RMx is the cheapest 650 watt I’d recommend.
MY Current Power Supply Unit : EVGA 600B (600W Bronze) - I really dont see what wrong with this 600 Watts PSU consider is actually decent to use with a RTX 2070 Super after meeting over PSU requirements. Its not like its those PSU from OEM Prebuilt PC.

It’s not horrible but it’s a tier 3 compared to the options we have are tier 1. It won’t fry your stuff but it may not last long if stressed past warranty.

Avoid 600b with high end hardware. Evga g5 aren't horrible, but not very good either.

Id look for an EVGA g2 if you want evga.
Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650w is very good.
Corsair RMX are very good aswell, id reccomend over the focus.

I mostly going play on casual 1080p 144hz at mostly max settings in many games...it really do not see anything wrong with this unit as there no real evidence of killing the system on a high end card like RTX 2070 Super. It just many vertran psu users personally creating their own tier list all i see. The only evidence i see for PSU blowing up are the really unknown brands and mostly oem pre-built pc that come with those psu.

Do NOT use any EVGA 600B unit with anything more than a slot powered graphics card. They are junk and they die here in droves when paired with graphics cards that technically should be totally fine with any decent 600w unit. Also, avoid the W1, N1, BQ, BT, G1 and B3 units as well. They might, MIGHT be fine for baseline type systems but they are not good choices for use with mid to high end hardware.

This Capstone M is probably the best best 650w unit out there right now below 70 dollars. It is a very good unit overall. It is an older design and platform, but it is DC-DC and well built.

If you’ve used it over 3 years then it’s outlived it’s warranty, which means it’s time to replace it.

Exactly correct, especially in the case of this particular type of power supply and the fact that it's been used with hardware it was never really suitable for use with in the first place.
I mean used first on AMD FX 6300 / GTX 750 Ti computer then on i7 6950X (10 Cores/20 Threads) / GTX 1080 Ti computer few more than 6 months in a nearly everyday use then on i5 7600 + 1050 TI computer then on this computer...seem working fine with no risk

You used that PSU on a $700+ GPU and $1500+ CPU, that takes balls man. It most certainly will last forever without issue. Good luck!

The everyday use is nearly avg 50% load on that workstation computer back then (6950X) with few Intel Optane SSDs before i switched Seasonic 1000W PSU.
BUt i mostly i will a new PS for my gaming computer U just to make the system look new

Some people can see advice and take it for what it is, in a reasonable fashion and understand the value in that advice. Others, can't, and will insist to the ends of the earth that their use of a poorly recommended component is both satisfactory and competent. So there is no point in wasting time trying to convince them and honestly I probably should have closed this thread the minute you mentioned that you had already posted a similar thread previously but there is just enough hope of a common sense solution somewhere in there that I'm inclined to leave it alone for now.

I not going against any advice (they are all good on tomhardware as usual), but some how i got that "lucky" low tier PSU that handled a 1080 Ti and i7 6950X for 6 months with avg of 50% load nearly everyday in that 6 month without any issue.

I am still looking for the affordable PSU not because of the tier, but mostly to make every in that Ryzen 7 3700X (7nm) computer look new. The RMX seem to good choice and the Rosewill one mention above
