Hello,
I have a 3700x, 5700xt Red Devil, 32GB 3200 RAM, 512gb NVME m.2 and a 2TB SSD,
Will a 650W Gold+ PSU be efficient?

According to our review, 250W peak is about what you can expect from the 5700XT. AVG is around 225. The 3700X is ~100W, so the big two will chew up ~350W between them. Gaming load for a system should be ~400W. A real quality 550W should handle this, a 650W will handle OCing if you want to do that. Depending on which "650W Gold+ PSU" you pick you'll either be fine or hurting badly.

From what I've made out on here, it's based on a Seasonic Focus which is a solid PSU, it's got enough wattage to adequately supply a upper mid streaming and production rig, it uses great capacitors, it's got a 10 year warranty and it's fully modular for £55.
