An EVGA GQ 650 is cheaper and still good.

The Seasonic S12II lines with 520/620W are good cheaper but non fully modular choices.

The XFX TS aren't bad either.

Just be sure your PSU has the VGA connector cables your need be it a 6pin and an 8pin or dual 8pin depending on your GPU.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qYTrxr/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1 should be more than enough for your needs and a lot less than the 115 you mentioned, oh and spending money on a quality PSU is never a waste

I know that power supplys are important but i think that i could get same quality for little lower price since power supply is the only part left where i can save some money.

I used the DE site since I saw you were referencing the Euro up top. I bought this PSU. It's semi-modular and comes in cheaper at (99€) then the EVGA G2 while being just as, if not more reliable.

As i mentioned i will probably order my parts from amazon.de because parts are cheaper. I live in Croatia, and parts are here way overpriced ( for example i7-6700k is 515USD, currently on sale for 455USD )

the RMx units are indeed about 10 euro cheaper than the G2 on that site.

If you want one that is on par with the G2 your best bet will be looking into the Corsair RMx/AXi/HXi units and the Seasonic X and the Evga P2.
