First timer builder | Power Suply Opinion

Hello All,

I am nearly finished completing my first build!

Just need an opinion on my power supply and if its correct for the parts i have?

Upon looking at Youtube videos on pc builds i see a lot of people have more ports in the back of their power supply then what i have chosen?

All opinions will be appreciated!

You could get away with a 550W CXM

It's fine. Possibly more wattage than you need, 550w would be enough.

Awesome thankyou, the reason i chose a 650w is for future upgrade so will save me buying another one if needed :)

Well, if the price is OK.

But even with a RTX 2080, 550 Watt would be more than enough.

Now if you want a 650 Watt PSU, why you don't get a full modular unit for £9 more!
