Hello, I want to buy a PSU for my old build. The recommended power wattage for this build is 650 W. I live in India and have a really tight budget. I'll list my specifications below. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming
CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU : 2- GTX 970 -SLI
Fans : 4 - 120mm
SSD, Hard Disk 2TB
Thermaltake water 3.0 cooling kit

Also I picked out some power supplies on amazon.in. Please tell me if the following would power my build. Thanks.

First, get an understanding of what wattage your computer requires. Use the link calculators and a manual computation to determine the required wattage total. Add 25% more for a grand total.

Second, look for PSUs that meet the grand total wattage and fall within your budget.

Third, I would avoid bronze level PSUs especially if PSUs are difficult to get. Try to increase your budget if at all possible.

Fourth, look for well recommended vendors in your country with good reputations and return policies.

PSU's are a critical component - likely you will need to increase your budget.

Thanks for the reply. I previously had Corsair AX1200i as my PSU but had to RMA it twice as it stopped worked working after a few months and randomly shutdown with red light. I just want to buy a PSU that would work for 2-3 years as I'm planning to upgrade my build later on. If the PSUs I've specified will do the job can someone verify it or if anyone has any other recommendation please tell me. Thanks again.
