I have just bought new graphics card it's gigabyte 1650 super 4gb windflow. For my 3d modeling and rendering work. Just Becz of low power supply I need to buy new psu for it so that I can run gpu.

Plz suggest me reasonable PSU. My budget is not too high, it's under 85$.

My PC contain
I5 8600k CPU
Asus strix z370e motherboard
Corsair vengance 16gb
Gigabyte 1650 super 4gb oc
Cooler master hyper 212 cp cooler
1tb hard disk and 250ssd

I've checked the voltage from site pcpartpicker it needs around 320w.
Ive also found Corsair CX650 is in my budget. Should I go with this or if you have any alternative or better suggestions plz let me know. Thank you so much

What PSU do you have at the moment?

The Vengeance 650 isn't terrible, and should be plenty sufficient for that build - but there is usually better options for the money. However, given the current climate, PSUs are limited in availability & what is available is overpriced.

Where are you located (country-wise)?

In India, it appears the CX650 to be much to same price (or less) as the Vengeance lineup - making it a much better choice.

However, availability appears scarce.

The CX650M (the -M variants are not quite as good as CX non-M) looks to be the best choice, given availability I can find - and almost identical in price vs. the Vengeance.

Basically, it's presence in A vs B+ of the CX is hotly debated and is now housed here.

and discussed here:

You'll see in the discussion thread that JonnyGuru (very respected reviewer, now head of R&D at Corsair) has confirmed the CX lineup to be better than Vengeance. Now the CX-M is not quite as good as the CX non-M, but still.

If you've been paying attention to that discussion you would've noticed that he was talking about TX-m, big difference. And he was really rather complaining of TX-m position in tier B rather than Vengeance in tier A, or at least that's my take.
Regardless, Vengeance Silver is not a bad PSU, there are certainly better ones but if it's considerably cheaper (like 15$ or more) than other tier A options then there's no need to look further. But with this build it's completely acceptable to go for smth from tier B, like aforementioned Corsair CX if it's even cheaper.

That's my bad - I knew that... I'll have to blame lack of coffee this morning.

TX-m's position relative to Vengeance, nothing to do with the 'tiers' per se was my takeaway.

I checked the price of TX it's out of my budget. And I checked shops and online stores vengance is also out of stock also. I am finding CX650 is the option I can take. Will this better?
