need a help on picking the psu , for this setup , as per this website it shows 450w as power needed , either corsair rm 650 or 750 , the reason i wanna go lower wattage bcoz im getting a APC 1.1kva ups for power backup, but i may(mostly wont) upgrade my gpu to 4060ti or 5060ti in future without changing any other config if i get a good deal , in that case should rm 650 able to handle the newer gpu since i have 200w left over or should i go for rm 750

I do not understand why you want the lower wattage one; a PSU only draws the power it requires. But 650W is almost certainly fine for an x60 Ti.

The Corsairs are excellent PSUs, but have you considered the Seasonic-made EVGA G6? On sale at the moment.

thanks for the reply mate , unfortunately evga is not available in india to be purchased , ill stick with corsair , my concern here about lower wattage was , if i get a rm 750 psu would apc 1.1 kva ups give backup like 5-10mins while gaming (at full load- 450w)

Unless I misunderstand your question, that's not how it works. If the PC is the same and the efficiency ratings of the PSUs are the same, it doesn't matter for power draw whether it's a 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W PSU, etc. That's only maximum output. A UPS doesn't backup a theoretical output, it backs up actual usage.

thanks again , i think i misquote the question , i dont know well about how this psu and ups stuffs works, i now understood the 650w/750w psu does not matter because of the same efficiency rating , my last question is a 1.1kva ups enough for setup with the monitor
