Hi,

it is rated at 450Watts according to the link below. The RX570 requires a minimum of 350Watts with a 6 pin GPU connector (See link below).

The GTX 1650 also requires a minimum of 350Watts but doesn't need a power connector as it only draws 80Watts!. (See link below). :)

Thank for the reply :).

Armageddon Voltron Bronze 235FX real Watts is 242Watts, The 450 Watts is it max /peak Power.

So this really concern me, when I first bought the CPU, I already ask seller about the PSU & seller mention is 450Watts.
But when I check it, is a 242Watts PSU.....

Planning to buy EVGA 600 or can I get suggestion/recommendation a good 450Watts ~ 600Watts ATX PSU under 80$ that suitable for GTX 1650 / RX 570 ?

Thank You.

Not being a power supply engineer. I look at the 225 Watt continuous rating of that PSU and I'd be off to spend $75 on a name brand PSU rated at 450-500 watts continuous. I had a PSU fail in a PC some years back. Fried the MB,CPU and the RAM.

Probably don't need 600, 450 continuous noticeable cheaper. I like Corsair or Coolermaster.

I like those modular PSUs , you end up with fewer cables in the box.

For recommendation; you want to look for 80+ Gold. This is the efficiency rating. Next is brand and with in those brands are entry, builder, gaming and pro series. Seasonic, Corsair, Antec are my 3 go to PSU. Stay away from the entry and builders levels...go with gaming/pro series. They are more expensive but well worth it. Next is to look at the warranty......3 - 5 year warranties = entry/builder level PSU's.....look for ones that have 7 - 10 year warranties. Follow those search parameters and you'll have a quality PSU at a starting price point of $99

13 amps on the 12v rail isn't going to cut it for an rx570 or gtx1650. A basic 400 watt Corsair (or the other brands bassfisher mentioned) would be ample for those cards.

Newegg.com has a promo/sale right now that has an EVGA Super Nova GT 650 watt 80+ gold, 7 year warranty, fully modular for $99. Which is an excellent choice for a PSU.
