550 watts is too low for gamers. 850 watts is recommended. For anyone else, it's fine.

Depends how strong of a system you're trying to run. 550 is plenty for budget rigs.

Because a lot of people use a pc as a combined gaming/productivity workstation? Something you can't do with a console. You also obviously get a lot more customizability with a PC.
Sure, I said that in my original post. I also said for "gamers" 550w wouldn't be enough.

For many gamers 550 is enough. Go look at steams August pc survey and tally up the watts for the most popular pc parts. You'll find it below 550W. No need to be arrogant.

550w is plenty for a very capable 1080p gaming rig. Being a "gamer" doesn't have a price tag or a component criteria to qualify... Very toxic attitude you have.

Power Supply prices are ABSURD right now

$100 is way too much for a 550 watt, modular or not

for this exact same price you can order a CX750M direct from Corsair's site with free shipping.
It's not fully modular but why wouldn't you want something that gave you some more overhead for the future. You're going to use those motherboard cables anyway so fully modular makes no sense

Is 550 watts really too low? If I go through any wattage calculator and put my entire system in there, unless you are going with crossfire/sli setup, pretty much any modern gaming setup seems to be well below 500 watts (and even below 400). 550 seems have plenty of head way and as long as it is a decent tier PSU I think it should be more than adequate.

Lordy be, -please- nobody buy a CX series unless you absolutely can't help it.

Seasonic FOCUS GX Series 650W 80 Plus Gold Modular ATX Power Supply is $105 on B&H with free shipping right now. Lots of favorable reviews are out there for it.

Even though 550w maybe enough for most rigs, I still like to shoot in the 750w range(give or take). You never know what future systems may need. If one doesn't upgrade much at all 550w should be plenty. My PSU's last through multiple upgrades.

I think that's fair. I'd argue that you'll likely not need much more than 550-600s if you're an average user. Most people generally only add hard drives, and an SSD adds barely 1 watt. If you are the type to go SLI or upgrade to a 3090 later, then definitely need to factor that in. Usually when I get to that much of an upgrade though I end up buying a whole new system.

Almost five years ago I bought a 650W fully modular 80+ Gold certified EVGA for about ~$70 after a $10 MIR.
quiet, cool & efficient!
another five years ahead with full warranty even for a 1080p gaming rig and future upgrades.
Was it worth it?
I believe so!
Now, this one right here? it's up to you!

FWIW I won't buy seasonic again if you pay me.

I've got a 1000 watt modular SS-1000XP I bought for my desktop gaming rig.

It came with a 7 year warranty... .which is nice, because I've needed it way too often.

Purchased it June 2013.

And had to RMA it March of 2015... then again in July 2016... then again in May 2018...


All 3 times return shipping was on me.... and they refuse to cross ship


So I was without the PC for about 2 weeks every time.


Warranty was up a few months ago, and it's about due to die again too... hopefully it holds out for another month or two for me to build my new machine once Zen3 and 3090 stuff is available.... never again Seasonic though.



And FWIW, it's running on a line interactive pure sine UPS.... (and not the same UPS the whole time either).


And it is one of half a dozen desktop PCs running in the same house- none of the others have had a single power supply failure during that entire period.... (they're not all that old, but the PCs they replaced never had power issues either).



And I mean, maybe the SS1000 model was just a really crap design... but I'm never buying a PS from anybody who won't cross ship going forward.

You might have just gotten unlucky, but you're going to have to do research not to end up with a Seasonic even if you don't buy a Seasonic brand PSU--Seasonic is a very well respected OEM.

I got unlucky 4 times in a row with the same product? Seems unlikely compared to "the product sucked and so did the support offered for it"


Didn't take much research BTW.

Lets you reference the platform and OEM maker of virtually every power supply out there.


I bought a Corsair RM1000x for my new PC.

Not only is it not made by Seasonic (CWT is the OEM)- and not only does it have a 10 year warranty (the seasonic was 7)-but most importantly- Corsair will cross ship a replacement so that unlike Seasonic you don't have to go 2-3 weeks without a working PC if you do have a problem.
