I recently bought the EVGA BV 450w for $20 but it didn't require a MIR for that price. I consider this cx to be it's competitor so I took apart my PSU to compare the two. This PSU has a 5yr warranty the EVGA has a 3yr. This PSU uses Japanese caps, EVGA one uses Taiwanese. This one is rated for 450w @ 40°, EVGA is 30° (horrible). This PSU is independently regulated, EVGA is group regulated. Conclusion, this is a much better power supply. I'm pretty sure I'm right about everything I just said, but welcome any corrections.

how would this be paired with a AMD Ryzen 7 1700x?

Probably not a great idea.

nonsense, running a Ryzen is a non-issue. mainly depends on what your GPU is going to be - ex: GTX 1060 only needs 20A on the 12V rail - well within spec

right now as i dont have a graphics card i'll be just running video from the motherboard but maybe later this year i may get a high end graphic - what do would you recommend in terms of power supply, would this one suffice?

yeah hard to gauge what high end would mean, if you're going higher than an RX 570 maybe something more powerful is needed, AMD recommends 550W but at 30A on the 12V rail and 120W TDP you're still good there. I don't recall many boards with iGPU as far as Ryzen is concerned so a basic video card might still be needed.

good luck

Ryzen doesn't have built in GPU so you'd need a GPU to view anything beyond the bios. I have the modular 430w one running my 1700 paired with an rx 470 8gb and have no issues

This is a pretty solid PSU, I've been using it with my build and so far no problems. Having that Semi-Modularity is a plus.
