What do you think of this build?
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wKXvmg
It will be mainly for gaming and some work. If I sub the listed PSU for Corsair VS650 will my system be okay? On pcpartpicker it says "The MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair TXM Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it. ". However, I dont plan on overclocking but I dont want there to be any issues with my system. Thanks

It looks like that motherboard requires a 24-pin, a 8-pin (EPS), and a 4-pin (ATX) power connector.

While the 4-pin may be optional, I prefer to supply power to all the power inputs on the motherboard. Just make sure the power supply you choose supports those connections.

I see no "additional 4 pin power" connectors on that board. The TXM is a MUCH better choice.
It is right next to the 8 pin EPS. The TXM is a far better power supply. That 4 pin really is only necessary if you want to push some heavy overclocking, on a Ryzen 9. It is for CPU only, so I don't understand the high powered GPU portion, that PCPP is saying. A seasonic fully modular gold is similar in price, and has that connector, though. It's also a better unit.

So if I get the TXM, my build will be fine right? and im not going to blow anything up?
