I am thinking about buying the Seasonic PRIME Ultra 650W Titanium, but my build is going to be a AMD Ryzen 7 2700X / Zotac Geforce RTX 2070 Mini Twin Fan 8GB GDDR6 / MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC / G.SKILL Trident Z 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200MHz CL15 / M.2 2280 Gigabyte Aorus NVMe Gen4 1TB / Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow.
I want to know if I should go with this one or should I downgrade to save money without compromising the build?

650 watts is what you need for wattage

As for what model, B tier and up is minimum (on the psu tier list)
i would go for an A for a mid-high end system like yours.

skimping on psu is bad. but if you want to lower costs, getting anything B or higher is good enough.

If you want to use a PCIe 4.0 m.2 drive you should be looking at an x570 board. The b450 supports PCIe 3.0 so it will limit the gen 4 m.2 speed. B550 boards support gen 4 but I'm not sure of availability right now.

They got released today. meaning stock is probably plenty in the us, and will be everywhere else in.. i'd say 4 days.
