Please note that PCPP offers both a wattage estimate as well as warning about the compatibility of your system based on mobo/CPU and possible BIOS issue.

Your best bet in regard to the PSU would be to select parts that are known compatible, take the wattage recommend, add to it a touch, and then see what is available in your price range. It is recommended to then do some review searches or look on some of the quality tiers available online to judge if it will be a good pick.

My budget for the power supply is 100$. I want to overclock the system to and the motherboard. And also give it a rating on a scale of 1-10 for a 920$ build
Hey there,

A decent 650w Gold unit would do you fine, but to allow for some overclocking and more power hungry components, maybe 700-750w.

My preference at the moment is the Corsair RMx/RMi/RM and even the TXm is pretty solid too (I have one with a 5600x and 3060ti).

Something like this:

You cannot overclock with that system. Overclocking requires a K series chip, and a Z series board. That RTX 2060 is a bit overpriced. You can get a faster RX 6600, for less. For less than $10 more on the system total, you could step up to 32gb ram, and a 6650xt, with some parts changes.

A 6650xt is just slightly faster than the regular 6600xt.
