Hello Everyone,

I have purchased the following PC components :

-Intel Core i5-9600K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7 GHz (4.6 GHz Turbo)
-MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS LGA 1151 (300 Series-)
-G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition CPU Air Cooler, 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes, 120mm Silencio Fan
-GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC 6G Graphics Card, 2 x WINDFORCE Fans, 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6

The only thing that is missing is a PSU. Request you to recommend me one. However my budget for the PSU is around $50.

Thank you,

Cheers,
GR

This is the best PSU I can recommend for under $50 and it will work for your system however it's always better to spend a bit more on your PSU as it's the heart of your system.

Look at these PSU models. They are of much better quality as well, though a bit expensive. But, we don't upgrade PSU that often, so in the long run, buying a HIGH quality does pay off very well. Trust me.

PSU is the last component you might want to cheap out on, or skimp. Try to get some other high quality PSU, IF possible. Power supplies are an imperative part of your system that should not be taken lightly. Throwing in a budget PSU could result in poor power efficiency or even a wrecked system. Don't SKIMP on the PSU,, since this is the MOST important PC component. I can't stress this enough.

Thank you for your suggestions. I don't live in the US, here prices are higher than what you would get in the US.

Anyway SEASONIC is not available here. Please suggest in Corsair or CoolerMaster. Plus is 550 Watt OK or should I go for 650 W. I will try to increase my budget as PSU is important.

  1. Corsair Vengeance Series 650M 650 Watt 80 Plus Silver Certified PSU (CP-9020175-UK)
  2. Corsair CS Series Modular CS550M 550 Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified PSU (CMPSU-CS550M)
  3. Corsair TX650M 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified PSU CP-9020132-UK

Thank you guys for your help. I have purchased Corsair TX650M PSU.

I also got Cooler Master MB511 RGB case/pc cabinet. When installing PSU will fan face down or up. I think it should be down because if I make it face up then there is the plate/long thing which may cause obstruction. Let me know if you can. :)
