rx 5700 xt RD --
noctua nh-u12s
b450 tomahawk max
hyperfuryx rgb 2x8gb

i already look for some psu's RM850x 80 PLUS Gold but this one have some bad reviews on amazon and coolermaster v850 anyone have any suggestion
 
I'm running an RMx 750 (2 years) and RMx 1000 (3 years) with no problems and I like them as they are quiet.....but if you want to stay away from the RMx there are lots of other good models.

As far as 850 watts....that's pretty high (most systems can get away with 650 watts or so)....but if you decided to get something like a 3090 then it's not that high.

actually was think like 3080 max or rx 6000 (still waiting price ) and also heard dont know is it true that with rm models u need buy some cables extra ?
any similar models in range of that price ?

Here are two very good articles on PSUs.
The second is a tier list which will give you an idea of what is good and what isn't.

Well...I'm kind of a Corsair fan....and I've had good luck with them....so I would recommend Corsair.

Out of the other three....I read that Coolermaster and EVGA do have good models.....I'm just not sure of those models. I would google them.

I've never read anything good about Toughpower. I'm not saying there aren't good ones out there but I'm not familiar.

TX850M would be my choice... I specified in my comment above. That CM V850 is really solid as well, but it's usually much more expensive.

If you want reassurance, @jonnyguru might chime in to help... I'm by no means an expert.

R5 3600 - ~80-90W with PBO enabled... if everything stock it should be around ~70W
RTX 3080 - in some instances could peak at 400W+ (round it to 500W)
Rest of the parts might draw around ~100W... that's a gross estimation, most likely is less.

So in the worst possible scenario (quite unrealistic as you won't load to the brink your GPU and CPU at the same time) you're looking at under 700W.
Esentially 750W should be more than enough for your system... an 850W unit will be plenty even with future upgrades or overclocking.

So even if i buy 3080 +105 tdp cpu will be enough? ,also i found antec hcg 750w for good price ?
 
If you're wanting an upgrade, I'd stick with the 850W units. Other people in previous threads had problems with 750W units when going with the 3080 and a more power hungry CPU.

Antec HCG Gold models are based on the Seasonic Focus Plus platform... they're great as well.
