Help choosing a cheap/good power supply

Jul 17, 2018
Hello, recently my power supply stopped working so now I want to buy another one. I live in Argentina and here the prices are very high, and I have few options compared to the north american or European market.
I've been watching the SeaSonic M12II 620W for 2400 Argentine pesos (about 87 US dollars) + shipping, but I want to know what other options I have spending less.
Other options I have are: Cougar VTE600 (1900 ARS, 69 USD), CM Masterwatt Lite 600W (1270 ARS, 46 USD) or NZXT Hale82 700W (2180 ARS, 79 USD) and some more like the Thermaltake TR2 and Smart white.
Are any of these models worth the price? Or should I just get SeaSonic and go?

My system specs:
Gigabyte GA-H61M-S1 rev 2.1
Deepcool Gammaxx 400
2 x 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz
XFX Radeon HD 7770 1GB
WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM

I want at least 600 W to be able to power a future upgrade of my graphics card (I was watching a used GTX 770 or Radeon HD 7970).

Thanks for reading and sorry if I messed up writing, English isn't my native language.

I would suggest the cooler master Masterwatt Lite 600W out of those. If you find a similar version of Antec brand then I would go that route. I've never had any trouble with Antec PSU.
You don't need 600w , a 550w would do absolutely fine

I'd the corsair cx or cxm 550 are available theyre good units , or the cooler master master watt 550 (not the lite).

From your original list the seasonic is the only one I'd consider.

It depends on which CXM you buy. There are two versions, the green label versions ain't the best!

It's the grey version, not the one that has green letters.
So should I buy that one or go get SeaSonic? I can also purchase the SeaSonic S12II 520 W for 70 USD

Sorry for so many questions, I want to make a smart choice rather than buy something and not take full advantage of the expense
For your system, the Seasonic will do just fine. It's a decent PSU for the price. You can get better. If it fits within budget, then it won't be a bad buy. The CX550m is good too. Whichever is cheaper. Neither will be a bad buy.
