Seasonic focus are top of the line. Made some changes for storage and memory. You’ll never notice a difference between a 660p and a 970 evo much better bang for your buck. Gskill NEO is built specifically for AMD systems and DDR 3600 is beneficial with AMD over DDR 3200.

Seasonic focus gold, Corsair TXM, Rm or RMX, EVGA Supersonic G3 are all good. I would go with seasonic myself as they are equal in cost and have the best product.

Any seasonic focus gold. Just tell me what wattage you want and I’ll link it.
Also got a question for you

I have WINDOWS on my OLD ssd

I would like TO do a CLEAN install of windows to the NVME m.2 Set to boot drive

Then i would like to bring that OLD ssd over to the new build!

Otherwise how can i bring all my games and stuff over? what would you suggest I do?

I would also have an OLD HHD I would like to bring over ( does not have windows on that )

Or should I try to put all the old data and games on a external hard drive. then wipe the old drives ( idk how to do that so a linked video would help) then plug all the new and old hard drive together in the new build. ( idk if i would bring over the old HHD)

thoughts?

Here is a 550 and a 650. As a general rule always get PSU with 50 watts over, ex. 550,650,750. Even 500,600 are usually not good.

Any drive without windows can be brought right over. Personally I would reinstall all of your games to ensure they are all jiving with the new OS but you can try to bring them over without doing so.
