My build is i7 9700k
z390 gigabyte master motherboard
evga 2070 super
32 g ram 3300
how much power will i need for this build i do plan to overclock, i had a 750 seasonic platinum and it blew lucky not damaging anything else, so is the problem not enough power or did i just get a faulty power supply?

A 750w should do the job just fine but the 2070 Super is rated for 650w so i might end up going with an 850w just so i have lots of extra power if i wanted to swap out the gpu or add other parts later. I would go with gold as a minimum on rating but if you have the extra cash then get another platinum.

Heres a link to a corsair 850w gold:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-RM850-Certified-Modular-Supply/dp/B07S2SXVR5/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=corsair+850w+gold&qid=1599980686&sr=8-1

Your old Psu was probably just faulty, i cant see those parts pulling enough power to blow the psu. Even if the gpu was rated at 750w which its not, it could still technically run off a 600w as there is always a buffer for consumer protection and other issues.

Also most psu's come with long warranty's. My corsair 750w Platinum came with a 10 year warranty. If you still have the paper work for it and receipt then you may be able to claim on that warranty.

Hope this helps.

Corsair and Seasonic are both good brands in my books. Im a little biased towards Corsair as that is the psu i have, but i know people with other brands including Seasonic that have never had a problem.

As long as its 80+ gold or more and not some dodgy looking gray box from an unknown brand you should be good.

Heres an 850w 80+ gold Seasonic psu:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-FOCUS-GX-850-Modular-Supply/dp/B07WVMDZMZ/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=seasonic+850w+gold&qid=1600025053&sr=8-1

I would be more inclined to go with the corsair one though as its cheaper.
