Sorry for the broad question. However, my system will consist of

B550 ROG Strix
1650 Super
Ryzen 5 3600

I do know about the Linus PSU tier list, however, it is a bit overwhelming and there's just so many selections. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Here’s a good one:
Corsair RM650x.

For 1650super any quality 450-550W will be more than enough.

What is your maximum budget?
450W??
I wouldn’t go that cheap on the PSU!
Rememember that PSUs deliver the advertised wattage only when they are pretty new. In time, they’ll deliver a bit less.
It’s not good to be on the edge of things!

A decent 450w psu won't be anywhere close to the edge with a 1650 super unless you are using a power hog of a cpu, which the 3600 is not.
I had a 450W Delux PSU (which is not quite a decent brand) that fried out 4 years ago, while having an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 CPU, 4GB DDR2 and an Nvidia GeForce GT 640 graphics card in my PC.
After that, I bought a FSP 550W PSU and never had issues with that build again!

So yeah, that happened because I was on the edge of things.

That happened because the psu was dumpster fire grade garbage and not actually 450w.

A decent budget unit like a CX450 is far superior to that Delux pile and plenty for the OPs specs.

Yeah, but even in that case, even if it does work on that particular build, I still recommend going higher than your actual needs. You’re more futureproof that way! And less likely to go through hiccups.
