I put together a build with a ASRock B550 Taichi mobo and a Sapphire Nitro+ SE GPU card. Pcpartpicker computed the power load for the whole build around 450W. I had originally ordered a Seasonic Focus PX 750W PSU from Newegg, but it's backordered and I don't know when it will ship so I'm thinking about getting a different PSU since all the other components are arriving in the next day or so. Newegg had it listed for $144 which seemed like a great price. PSUs seem to be in short supply these days, so there aren't a lot of choices. Another concern is that the mobo needs two 8 pin power connectors along with the 24 pin, and the graphics card needs two 8 pin. I'd like solid high quality PSU, but it doesn't have to be Platinum. Gold is probably okay. I'm thinking about the be Quiet! Dark Power 11 750W which seems to be a good PSU for $179 on amazon. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

5700XT?

You'd be fine with a quality 650W unit too...
Right now, the best 'value' would be in the CX650 or CX750 ($80 and $100 respectively on Amazon), and should be available to ship now or later in the week:
https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Bronze-Certified-Non-Modular-CP-9020122-NA/dp/B01MRW2K7E/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Corsair+CX+Series+650+Watt+80+Plus+Bronze+Certified+Non-Modular+Power+Supply+(CP-9020122-NA)&linkCode=gs3&qid=1596560543&sr=8-1&tag=pcp0f-20&th=1

After that, the Seasonc Focus Gold 750W is $125 and available as far as I can tell?

The Bitfenix Whisper M 850W is $130 at B&H as a special order. Says 7-14 days, but that's likely their 'normal' standard (although some of their PSUs say 5-7 WEEKS!)

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, it's a 5700xt GPU.

The Seasonic you listed isn't a modular PSU, and I prefer to have that. I have not heard of Bitfenix so I'll research that. I think I'll give Newegg a couple more days on the Seasonic PX 750W, and if they don't have it by then, I think I'll go with the be Quiet! if it's a quality PSU.

The NewEgg listing has updated today, only looking at a week or two out.

The BestBuy 750W though, despite PCPP listing as in stock, is not when you flow throw to BB
Thanks to all who replied.

I decided on the Seasonic Focus PX 750W PSU. For a short time yesterday, it popped up on amazon for $137. I think that's a pretty good price for a quality Platinum PSU. It'll ship Friday, so I'm set.
