There are many questions that could be asked:

I will start with "what is your budget"?

You will need to plan ahead so include the GPUs , CPUs, etc. that you are considering.

You will need to ensure that the motherboard will support the GPU.

The key to all the above is the games that you play.

Most games provide some listing of hardware specs in the form of Minimum, Recommended, and Best.

You do not want Minimum and you do want as much Best as you can afford.

With respect to PSUs:

Work through two or three of the calculators to get a sense of what PSU wattage is needed and what specific, well rated PSUs meet that criteria with respect to the new build specs (i.e., GPUs) that you have in mind.

There is no intent to make you feel dumb. The intent is to help you make good choices based on your requirements and your own good efforts to determine and decide what build works for you in your real world.

To me "a half ass" answer would simply be a link to some truly over-priced gaming build. Likely outside your budget.

I will defer to any such answers if that is what you want.
