Can anyone recommend me a good 500 - 650 power supply for a 295W drawing build?

I dont want to go cheap on the psu but I dont want to go too high either.

Rough budget and location my friend?

Glad you've already decided not to go cheap! (You'd be amazed how many unstable and damaged systems we see because of this).

What is the exact spec of the rest of your system as power supply calculators are notoriously inaccurate.

Efficiency - gold is more power efficient than bronze. But doesn't necessarily mean better quality.
In most cases, you won't have a significant decrease in your power usage, the margins between efficiencies are pretty small.

If that is your build, then something akin to the Corsair CX above would be perfectly suitable, but i don't know how well priced these are in your location.
Do you have a particular online shop in mind that you could link?

https://ksp.co.il/ make sure to choose the US flag if it's not already in English.
https://www.ivory.co.il/power_suplly.html this one is in Hebrew only but i dont think it that much of a problem.
also 1$ = 3.5 ILS. for easy calculation you can use this site https://www.hamara.co.il/ .

Thanks for your help

The cheapest I honestly would recommend on the first site is the Corsair CX: https://ksp.co.il/?uin=40816&select=.1108..140.&txt_search=
The only other one I would potentially consider is the S12ii which is the same price: https://ksp.co.il/?uin=9814&select=.1108..140.&txt_search= but the CX is a clear choice when they are the same price.

i checked the Ivory site and the same quality appears to be more expensive - and I wouldn't recommend the nonrated Cooler Master MWE, or the VS Corsair series for example.

Is this the same CX you recommended me before? if not which one is better?

it will be 30$ cheaper if i order it from amazon u think i should? i dont mind getting it later because i order a new gpu as well so it will take time to arraive.

Thank you for your help and quick responds, really appriciate it!
It's no problem at all my friend! I simply have no life... :)

I would yes, but ensure that it is exactly the same CX model, as there are OLDER CX models that are not great. You can tell by the colour of the label.
Green label = old and avoid.
Grey label = 2017+ and good.

Following that, the CX grey label is a good quality PSU, that is great value for money in most locations. 5 year warranty and shouldn't cause an issue with your components :)

sorry to bother you again but i dont know what to do..
I wanted to order the psu u recommended me - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRW2K79/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
but i saw one with 650W for only 10$ more -https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01B72W1VA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&th=1
and its semi - modular too. u think i should go for the 650W insted? its still cheaper than if i buy the 550W in my country
