Hey, As you know it's pretty much hard to find some cheap high end power supply in this pandemic and i came across one psu but i would like to know your advice please
My build:
Rtx 2070 super gigabyte gaming oc
Ryzen 5 3600
ram 3200 mhz team t force delta
B450 tomahawk max ( did not buy yet waiting for them to go on stock)
480 gb ssd

And i came across this power supply and I'm not sure if this will a be good power supply for my build ! and if i can expect it to last 5+ years

That PSU would work fine for your build, good quality unit (10 year warranty) and should last quite awhile.
i mean are they reliable/ like good quality? because you know im spending like almost 2k and i dont want to mess up anything just because of the psu and if u think theres another option that could be way better let me know!

It's a good quality unit. Currently PSU prices are much higher then they should be (COVID related?) and there's really nothing better I see for the same price or cheaper on CA PCPer. There's a Seasonic Focus Gold 650W for a similar price but it has a shorter warranty (7 years) so I'd stick with that Corsair.

i mean if the rm 2019 will work perfectly then would i really need that rmx and spend more on it with more taxes?
Well there both excellent quality units but if the additional $10+taxes on the RMX is a big difference for you then there's no reason not to get the RM 2019. Either unit will last well over 5 years unless there's some sort of defect in the unit which is really rare.

That's personal preference. When I won't be using the system for a few hours I shut it down since it shut downs/startups fast. Putting the system into sleep mode or shutting it down is fine, I prefer shutdown also to save on my electric bill but either is safe to do. I actually use sleep mode more on my laptop as I'd be playing at home, have a buddy hit me up and just close up the laptop and head over to his house and reopen the laptop from where it was.
