Good evening everyone 🙂

So I'm currently building a PC with the below specs:

CPU: i7 8700K

GPU: Nvidia RTX 2070 Super/AMD 5700XT

MOBO: Gigabyte Z270P-D3 (rev. 1.0)

And I'm currently searching for a PSU in order to power all of that. A sweet spot for me personally would be a Bronze certified 650W PSU, such as the Thermaltake Berlin Pro RGB 650W which is currently my first choice (opinions on this greatly welcome) and I really want those extra Watts in order to future - proof the system for both possible overclocks in the future and maybe even an upgrade to the RTX 2080 Ti.

But really I'm open for suggestions by anyone as long as they do not surpass my 70$ budget for this specific component.

Thanks in advance.

For your current build a 550W psu will be enough...but for future upgrade we will search for another psu.
This THERMALTAKE unit not good.
What your budget?

Okay so what do you actually recommend, as I would like to future - proof my PSU choice...

A 600W PSU, or a 650W one?

Also, my budget for this specific component is 70$, as I said in my original post.
 
I highly suggest you raise your PSU budget if you're planning on eventually slapping a 2080 ti on it.
Something like Seasonic Focus plus 650W or Corsair RM650X would be good.
Also, that cpu won't work on that motherboard.

Mind you, that should be the non-M version CX. Not the CX650M.

Even for a 2080 Ti, he could get away with an RM550x.

Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€94.99 @ ARLT)

Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€94.99 @ Amazon Deutschland)

Power Supply: BitFenix Formula Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply (€79.90 @ Caseking)

Power Supply: Corsair RM (2019) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€94.32 @ Mindfactory)

These would be my choices. The 550w versions are equitably priced, within a few €. Some are even more expensive, but that's due to sales in different stores, such as the Seasonic Focus Plus is also €105 in other stores. The SuperFlower Leadex III 550w runs €90 for the 550w version. 5€ for 100w difference is worth it.
