From what's said, you have a very decent psu, so if bypassing the low power idle load is an issue, only then would I opt for replacement. No point spending hard earned money when you don't have too.

But if it's a thing that's unavoidable, that's going to depend on 2 things, budget and location. It's already pretty much a given for a good 550w psu, but whether that's in budget and available to you is a different story, especially with covid driving prices nuts and a severe lack of in-stock items. I had to wait 3 weeks to get a Corsair psu from Corsair because even they were out of stock on their own products.

A good quality 650w PSU is enough, the VS in your list is a lower end budget unit, not something meant for a system like what you want to build.
Damn i already bought it :/ i bought the ram”s also if i use them something bad happens to pc or ? I feel bad now haha

no nothing bad will happen were just saying maybe it wont be enough and you maybe experience black screens or something.And ask before you buy
The thing is in my country Turkey lots of stuff is expensive i mean maybe in europe and usa 3200mhz ram -4400mhz ram difference cost is about 50 dollars in turkey difference is 100+ dollars same as psu also thats why i bought those but i think psu will handle easly this system because average wattage about this system is 430w ish lets see what happens :)

Most likely problems you'll run into with that PSU is instability/crashes and restarts/shutdowns especially if the system is in a warn environment. It's not good but definitely not dumpster fire grade bad either.

Neither of those. You are spending over $1000 on the computer I would never use a budget PSU. If need be, go a bit cheaper on the CPU, ie 3700X, and use the savings for the PSU. Here is an example:

Let's see. Destroying your entire system when it blows up? Cheaping out on the PSU is the worst thing you can do. When that PSU break it can die in peace or bring your system with it or just start on fire and bring the house with it.

Buy a good quality PSU.

Spend the extra savings on a quality psu.

Both of your choices for psu fall into this catagory. Just because they have a name brand doesn't make them good.

Doctor comes to you and tells you that you are dying, need a new heart. Offers the choice of a 18yr old slim and trim clean living Vegan athlete or at a half price you can have the heart of a 90year old obese chainsmoker who hadn't gotten off the couch in 30 years.

But they both work right? Good enough? That's the difference between a quality built psu and a cheaply built psu that claims quality.

The psu is the absolute most important component in a pc. Everything is powered by it, protected by it. Or not. Your choice.
