The Vendor told me i should get this :

60504 - 750 Watt Corsair RM Series Modular 80+ Gold


i would buy this instead because tier 1 :

750 Watt Corsair RMi Series Modular 80+ Gold


Would it work with lower ones too ? lets say something like this :


650 Watt Seasonic G Series Modular 80+ Gold


650 Watt Antec EarthWatts Non-Modular 80+ Platinum

or maybe even 550w :

550 Watt Seasonic G Series Modular 80+ Gold


i dont want to upgrade anything, i will rip the parts away if needed in one or two years or just share the pc to someone in need.. its just to game a little and stream maybe a bit!

Thank you guys i really appreciate all of your opinions and your help!


Have a nice day
