[SOLVED] psu wattage

The link doesn't work...or my internet is being filtered (not at home).
Regardless....you pretty much can't go wrong with a Seasonic or a Corsair.
Here is a good thread on PSUs.
Read it.
It will help you understand what is good and what isn't.

if you dont plan to add a GPU then yea it's enough.
If you wanna add a GPU, a GTX 1650 will still barely run on it but ONLY if it's a good quality PSU.

Spend $15 more and at least buy something that's half decent.

No one knows what that gigabyte model actually is, it could be anything.

You sure you're never going to add a GPU in the future??
It would make more sense to go for something with a bit more headroom if it's a possibility.
I'm sure i wont need a GPU this is a second system my primary has a 2070. Thank you for the suggestion.
 
Samule1234 In answer to your original question, generally a 400 watt power supply is enough for a 65 watt i5-9400. Question: Is this an existing prebuilt or something that you're personally building now? What is the purpose of this computer? Feel free to ignore my questions if they aren't relevant, it's just I wonder if you might have a deeper question underneath the surface of your original one.

Im building a new system for my dad. It will be used for writing emails, surfing the web, occasionally Youtube. No gaming. I already have the cpu and mobo (they are brand new) so i dont really want to change them but i am open to suggestions.

I kind of wanted to have it built today so I was looking for PSUs that are in stock at my local Canada Computers
