I am searching for ~50$ Power Supply

First of all, I am not sure this is right category so please correct me if this is wrong one.

So, yesterday I bought OC Gtx 1050 Ti and realised I needed 6 pin connector. I don't have one so I need a new PSU.

I know I have ATX case and my specs are:
i5-4460 3.2 Mhz
1x8gb RAM
Gtx 1050 Ti
1 TB hard drive
240gb SSD

I have around 50$ budget and I am not sure if other components but GPU even need specific connectors. Btw on my current PSU I have 20+4 connector.

So, any suggestions so everything works great?

    No reviews for it yet. No clue of quality. I do not recommend.

    OP, I recommend the Corsair CX450M or CX550M. Normally best quality units in the $50 or less range.

    you know that the cx 2017 is the cxm without the ''m'' for semi modular? .

    its a great psu, will fit

  6. What does actually matter here? I mean would any PSU that can fit and has 6 pin connector work? I am asking because in my country, only Corsair VS is selling

  7. the voltage stability, the quality of components like the capcitors ,rinse, wires.

    link to the website please?

  9. No the Corsair CX 2017 is completely different to the Corsair CXM 2015. The 2015 modular version is based on a custom CWT platform, which is reviewed very highly for it's price (example).

    The CX non-modular 2017 models however have not been individually reviewed and are made off two different platforms, both different to the CXM 2015 version.
    One platform those PSUs may include is one from Great wall, the same as the Riotoro Onyx, which has been reviewed as slightly behind the CXM 2015 models.

    The second platform it may use is a custom by CWT, which has not been reviewed yet so the quality/performance is completely unknown. Another reason to avoid.

  11. If you're using your original retailer site, the Antec Neo Eco would be the best ~50. Otherwise, I agree with the XFX TS at that price.
    EDIT: Just found this Corsair CX450m. Is better than both the Antex Neo ECO and XFX TS.

    Yes, 450w is plenty. That PC will consume ~ 135w at a gaming load.

    In your worst dreams you would need 320w. 450w ts is enough for a 1070
    Reply to superninja12
  16. but only enough for a 1070, should vega take off and start slapping nvidia all around the ring, then you might swap to AMD, BUT their power consumption is massive, so 450W then would be too tight.

    Historically the rule of thumb was a good 550-650W was good enough for any single card.
    Pascal and lower CPU consumptions changed that to 450-500W.
    Vega has taken us back to where we were.

    Don't buy a PSU for the rig you have right now, if you do you'll have to buy a new PSU with every upgrade, buy for the range of rigs you might have the future, most people know, that they will or will not bother with SLI, so set yourself up for the future and that PSU will outlast every other component that you have.

    So its ok if I keep this one? Btw I have 1 molex extracted in 2 Molexes and then extracted to 6 pin
    Or are you recommending I get even more expensive one?
    Reply to beni2geni
  18. You've been recommended other PSU's and been told what's good.
    Using molex to 6 pin, is a really bad idea.
    If you get a 450W PSU, it will be OK for your build right now, but with a future upgrade you'll probably have to buy a new one, with a slightly bigger PSU, perhaps not much more expensive, you'll be OK for any 'normal' upgrades that you might consider, hence you'll only have to buy 1 PSU and not 2 over the next few years.
    This for instance will the PSU that will take any single card card build you can throw at it, and will last for 5+ years easily. https://www.mlacom.si/seasonic-m12ii-620-evo-620w but it is only a little more.
    PSU's are the foundation of your system, they may not be sexy, they may not give you more FPS, but without them you get no FPS and a funny burning smell.

  19. To be honest 450w from a quality PSU will last you along time. It will pretty much power any single gpu + CPU combo, and I doubt you want to go sli due to their problems. For instance a build including a GTX 1070, recognised as a high end card, paired with an overclocked 7700k which was the fastest gaming CPU would only consume around 215w while game.

    Vega...
    Reply to 13thmonkey
  23. Even a PC with a Vega 56 + OC 7700k combo will only use around 300w while gaming.

    You'd have to go with the liquid cooled vega 64 + high overclocked, high end CPU, + more case fans and accessories.

    Also, it would be out of budget. The PSU you recommended is over $30 more expensive and still is a worse quality PSU than the corsair CXM. If one is found in budget, though, I'd probably advise it.

    So not bad then.

    At the top of this thread you state that the CX (2017) is not reviewed yet, and so you wouldn't recommend it.
    And the CXnnnM is not really reviewed on Jonny, except in it's 750W guise, where it scores less than the seasonic, so assuming the same platform carries through, it's not as good.
    http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=486

    Your thoughts are confused on the matter, you say the seasonic is still worse quality (no evidence), but you then also say you'd recommend it.

    Vega 56 load draw, 235W on it's own, no memory, CPU, mobo, fans.
    http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-radeon-rx-vega-56-8gb-review,8.html

    an OC'd 7700k would be 120W maybe, other peripherals, another 40, so that's 400W with zero overhead, so 550 would be a nice size.

    I get that you don't like that website, but in your country you can't be too picky ...
    I would denefetly get that ts.

    Come on...? Please don't just look at their overall score and compare them, even JonnyGuru himself recommends not to for this simple reason. A relative score back then is different than a relative score nowadays on JonnyGuru. The standard metrics have changed. Read and compare the actual performance numbers and build quality photos.

    The Corsair CX750M is a whole different platform to the CX450M/CX550M/CX650M. The CX750M is based on CWT's PUQ-B platform, while the other mention CXMs are based on a custom design platform by CWT.

    There are more reviewers than those on JonnyGuru... In fact, there is a review of the Corsair CX650M by Aris Mpitziopoulos, who performs much more in depth, accurate reviews due to more expensive equipment and experience.
    The Corsair CX650M was reviewed as better overall performance, with a much newer and better DC-DC design.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-cx650m-psu,4770.html

    Also, a whole system containing 7700k overclocked and Vega 56 has been properly tested to draw 331w. Multiply by the PSU efficiency is 300w. I'm not just making it up... https://www.techspot.com/review/1468-amd-radeon-rx-vega-56/page8.html
    Same thing with this review, actually slightly less and using an i9 7900x. https://hothardware.com/reviews/amd-radeon-rx-vega-gpu-review?page=2
    Even less here, http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/108889-amd-radeon-rx-vega-64-radeon-rx-vega-56/?page=14 (260w)
    The RX 56 by itself uses ~210w at a gaming load. The rest of the build (of a high end system) together uses ~90w in most cases.
    The 7700k stock uses ~77w while gaming. Overclocking would still keep it below 110w. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-kaby-lake-core-i7-7700k-i7-7700-i5-7600k-i5-7600,4870-8.html

    This review shows the 7700k to consume 122w while highly overclocked, under a very heavy load (heavier than gaming). Under a gaming load you'd expect ~110w.

    Other system parts would use below 30w.

    So looking at a pretty high tier build (higher than the ones tested in those reviews I linked) would be 350w. Still 100w headroom

    Corsair CX450M > XFX TS > Antec Neo Eco. I'd try get a PSU in that order (if you can't get the CX450M go for the TS...). All three are capable though, and somewhat above mediocre.

    So you will accept other reviews, that's fine then. Let's stop this now.
