  • CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
  • SSD: Samsung Evo 970 M.2 NYMe 500 GB
  • Case: Cooler Master K281
  • GPU: R7 Nitro 370 2GB (will upgrade soon)
  • Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX
  • RAM: 16 GB (2x8), 3200 Mhz (G.Skill or Corsair)
Usecase:

  • Programming
  • Make YouTube videos
  • A little bit of gaming
I will buy a good GPU in future, I have 1660 Super and 1660 ti in mind. But note that I will never buy a true high-end graphic card like 1080ti, that'll always be out of my use case.

Below is the cost of PSUs which I can afford in ascending order. Any idea which one is the best for my build/use-case?

CX650 Bronze < CX650M Bronze < Cooler Master MWE 750W GOLD < RM650X GOLD

I think CX650M Bronze is perfect for my build. What do you guys think?

I’d get a RM650x if you can afford it. A CX650M isn’t bad, but won’t last as long under high stress.
