Hello I would like to change my power supply because it was from a old build that I have.
I currently have corsair cx600m (I have it more than 7 years) and I want to use both pcs. I really like the smart rgb by thermaltake because of the rgb lights and the price. Any suggestions? What do you think about the power supply that I already have? This thermaltake psu is better or not?

My old pc have a amd 8350 and a gtx650ti

My currently pc:
Motherboard: B450m ds3h-cf (gigabyte)
Cpu: ryzen 3 2200g
Gpu: rx 570 (msi)
Ram: 16gb dual channel hyperx

Pretty comparable in terms of overall quality, with a slight edge to the SmartRGB being new.
However, 7+ years on a CX600 is pretty good going and preference would be any half-decent 'new' PSU.

Where are you located, and what kind of budget are you working with?
Also, what case are you using?

The RGB is a gimmick, and I'd recommend you opt for a quality PSU rather than 'flashy' RGB - especially if you're in a case where you;'ll never see it.

Thank you for your help! I live in Greece and my budget is around 50€. I don't want to go any higher if its possible, my case is a masterbox lite 3.1. I don't do a lot of things in my pc but I keep it on more than 12 hours per day. Also, from a psu calculator I saw that I consume around 320 wattage.

Doesn't look like there's anything confirmed to be "good" under 50EUR.

SeaSonics S12III units are available (500W and 550W), but there's still no trustworthy reviews out there on them that I can find.

Best I can find close to that budget is the CX450 @ 54EUR.

Whether that's the final price etc, I'm not 100% sure - but that's the best site I could find, and the best "value" in terms of quality vs price.

The newer CX, like the CX450 are solid step up from the older (green label) CX units.
