Hey there, I'm building a new rig, and I need some help selecting a good PSU for it.

This is what I currently have:
mobo: msi x570 gaming edge wifi
cpu: ryzen 5 3600x
gpu: gtx1080
storage: samsung 970 EVO PLUS V-NAND NVMe
case: coolermaster mb511 RGB

I need a PSU that is going to be reliable, and is nice for cable management.

I can purchase from newegg, so links from there would be lovely.

Budget: 100-120$ (willing to pay a bit more if the psu is really better but a bit more expensive)

Best regards and thank you in advance. :)

Welcome to the forums my friend!

Being as you want good cable management, I have only linked good quality FULLY modular PSUs as you can pick up some excellent ones for a good price at the moment:

Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($96.95 @ Amazon)
Total: $96.95 - 10 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: SeaSonic PRIME Ultra Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($114.99 @ B&H)
Total: $114.99 - 12 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($119.88 @ OutletPC)
Total: $119.88 - 10 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($104.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $104.99 - 10 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Platinum 650 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($102.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $102.99 - 10 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 11 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($148.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Total: $148.98 - 5 YEAR WARRANTY

All of the above are excellent quality. Price obviously depends on your location, for me the Seasonic PRIME Ultra Gold is a no brainer for the warranty and current price, and it is top quality.

Obviously you could go cheaper, and less modular like TXM, but I think with your budget, you may as well maximise quality and benefits.

Thank you for a warm welcome, it's always nice to see people being kind and polite, especially on the internet.

I decided to go with SeaSonic PRIME Ultra Gold, as Corsair RMx was not available on newegg for my country.

Once again, thank you both @PC Tailor and @R_1 for your help.

Cheers!

The Prime series are some of the best PSUs out there, and with a 12 year warranty, it's substantial.
Excellent quality and after sending you the links, it's an excellent price too!

The RMx is excellent too, but I'd choose the Seasonic over it any day if they were the same price.
