Evga 430w vs Corsair VS550 vs Be Quiet! System power 8 400w

Hey guys,
I'm building a gaming pc and here's the hardwares I'm going to use:
- Aerocool Aero 300
- Intel Pentium G4560 3.5GHz Kaby Lake
- Be Quiet Pure Rock Slim
- MSI B250M Mortar
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB DDR4 3000MHz
- Asus Expedition Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4gb
- Samsung EVO 840 120GB
- Toshiba 1TB HDD6
- Asus DRW-24D5MT DVD Burner

I'm not sure about what psu to use.
My budget is limited so I was considering as PSU the Evga 430w, the Corsair VS450 and the Be Quiet! System power 8 400w. What do you recommend between these three?

PS: will 400w be enough for this machine?

Thanks in advance :)

    Out of three, I'd say the Be Quiet! System Power 8 400w has the best quality and performance, with sufficient wattage.

    400w (384w on the 12v rail of the Be Quiet), should be enough considering The power efficient GPU and CPU. I doubt your system will use over 200w under load, based on several reviews testing the power consumption of a build with a 1050ti using under 170w in load. The Be Quiet System Power 8 is a solid PSU, better quality than the VS550. Just don't expect alot of headroom or anything amazing.

    Is system wattage measured at the wall and probably more taxing systems are used so your usage will be lower.

  6. superninja12 I will not upgrade the pc.
    I will sell it in one year, maybe a bit more, and build a new pc. Let's say that it's a temporary low budget pc :)
