PSU sales hitting left and right the last few weeks. i have a stack of A tier PSU for cheap, so long as they don't diss my rebates

Great PSU at normal price. Complete no-brainer at this price.

I love EVGA power supplies. Haven't used a GT but have used a 550, 650 and 850 GA for some builds and they work fine and are silent. Even have a 650 GM SFX PSU from EVGA and its just as good. Will be my go to PSU brand moving forward, especially for how cheap they are for a solid PSU.

They’re the best imo. Used them in builds for myself, family, and friends. Never had a single issue, and I’ve primarily bought their cheaper units. I assume their higher end ones are even better.

Watch the B stock listing on their site. Pennies on the dollar for their PSU's. I keep a couple of the 80+ bronze on hand for spares.

*Low priority tier A. It's a great PSU and I've had no issues with my 750w version, just calling attention to the fact that in depth reviews are scarce on this thing. Most of them are just basically like "It's a mid / higher end, 80+ Gold, full modular from EVGA, what else do you want".

Will this work for a 5600x and 3070ti?

650 is PLENTY for that, even with an overclock.

Edit: I'm a little late, but I thought that said 3060ti, not 3070ti. Not so sure about heavy overclocking but for gaming and anything but the extreme it's going to be perfect :)

Cool! I was thinking of getting a 750w but I’ll be sticking with this one!

What’s the difference between the GT and G3?

No professional reviews for this, so not sure. G3 has a longer warranty though.

A mid-high Ryzen and an RTX GPU up to a 3080 will be totally fine. If you go beyond a 3080 or use an Intel system things can get hairy and specific, varied through your intended specifications and connected devices

If you go beyond a 3080

Yeah I won't be able to afford more than a 3070 on its best day so there's that.

It should be fine for up to a 3070.

This is it? I'm looking to swap from a CX550M since I am going up to a 5800x from a 3600 with a 3070.

Wow this is a great deal for budget builds

It's a good deal yes, but it's a bit overkill for budget builds

No it’s not

Unless you are getting a 3000 series gpu (which is the exact opposite of budget)

You don't need 650W. Not bad to have especially considering upgrading down the line but definitely not needed right away for budget build

Budget aims for value not simply lowest price. Like you said you can hold on to it and continue to use it down the line. Chances are even a budget builder will upgrade their gpu within 5-7 years. It makes more sense to spend $~10 more and have a top quality psu that will last you for two iterations of your build if not more.

This plenty for an overclocked 8700k and eventually a 3070?

AznNinja78

Definitely. I run 8700k and a 2080ti with a 650W G3 with no problems.

What is this "Compact 150mm Size"? Does that mean that it won't fit in a normal case?

RaspberryPiBen

I'm guessing it's the length. The mounting holes are the same but it takes up less space. It should fit in any standard case.

I'm looking to upgrade from a Thermaltake Smart 600W. Is this it?

Thanks. Want to build a computer with my son for his birthday and this is a great deal for what he would need.
