Just saw this. Rebate ends 3/24. Drop-shipped directly from Seasonic.

$100 - $30 Rebate [bhphotovideo.com] = $70 Free shipping

Unlike Newegg deals, tax not collected for most states.

This is arguably the best power supply for a HTPC or home desktop (non-gaming) at sub $100 level.

- Quieter than most power supplies with a fan (< 15db avg) with a lambda A++ rating by Cybenetics.
- Hybrid mode that stops the fan at low power usage
- 140mm depth that will fit most small form factor cases
- Fully modular
- 10 year warranty

You may be surprised to know that there are actually people in this world whose life does not revolve around gaming and use computers for other things like building for entertainment centers, media servers, code development, video editing, etc. Many of these applications also require the PC to be as quiet as possible.

As mentioned in OP, this is probably the best power supply you can have below $100 for HTPC or non gaming desktop use as it is one of the quietest around and has a small foot print to fit small form factor cases.

Most of the builds for these applications draw less then 300W total and often significantly less with a typical single graphics card and the most power hungry cpus.

Nvidia recommends a 550w PSU for the RTX 2070. Personally I think that and the 2080 would be considered a high tier gaming build since there are a lot of 10 series cards that are doing just fine like my 1060 for 1080p gaming and my 1070 for 1080p/some 4k. So unless you're going for a RTX 2080, it's not necessary to get a bigger PSU, especially if you're thinking of building a mini itx gaming pc.

OK, so it has been years since I have built a desktop. Is it cheaper to buy a prebuilt or build it your self?

Looks like HP had a 500watt option on one of there short tops.

I do not need this for intense gaming, just feed up with the steps required to do maintenance on a laptop.

Why would you want a Platinum and only 550W? Given today's current hardware, 550W is a bare minimum for low/mid tier gaming builds.

It is cheaper to buy a prebuilt in the very bottom of the budget where you don't expect much. Building it yourself gives better bang for the buck in the mid-tier to high-end and is often much cheaper than pre-built ones in those tiers. In addition, you don't have to deal with some of the hardware and software restrictions imposed in prebuilt ones by big brand names.

My pc right now does turn on but won't boot. This past two months, it automatically shuts down sporadically, but this week every time i use it it is expected to shut down at some point and now it does power up but wouldn't boot. I'm using thermaltake thought power 775w for an i7 950 processor. Is my power supply dead? And can i replace it with this?

Depends on whether you need more power and OK with a higher noise profile

This is way to much when Newegg has a seasonic 620w full modular for $59.99 and $20 MIR.

Here is a great deal on the SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply , https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...rebbr=true
I found.
Not way too much when you consider the componentry required to comply with the Platinum rating.
