PSU recommandations
 
Hi guys, newbie at DIY here.
I'm looking for a reliable budget PSU...
i searched on Amazon / Qoo10 / shopee etc. But nothing can beat tao bao price wise.
EVGA 600w white costs only $64, with shipping maybe $70.
Is EVGA a good brand?

I usually can trust the warranty period

If it's 5 year warranty... I give it 3 years life span

Unless u suay... 1st day also can spoil

FYI, White is the lowest tier among the 80 Plus standard. Lower than even bronze.

i buy a lot of crap off taobao, but psus are the one thing i wont ever buy from there. its not worth it to save a buck now and find ur system fried a few years later, plus u will definitely want the local warranty support with psus.

i would suggest u look at corsair and seasonic psus, in particular the cxm series for budget and focus series for quality respectively. superflower is also another quality pick.

U can scrimp and save on any other parts but not psu :s13:
Get at least a 80+ bronze unless really have strict budget.

Given that a crappy PSU can potentially kill your entire system, best not to pay peanuts.

I will pay a slight premium for peace of mind,... This is the NO.1 item people never want to spend on but will be the one that backfires with the biggest BANG!

Might as well get local for the price.

FSP Hyper K 500W 80 Plus white also around $65 with 5 year local warranty.

Just go with a 80+ gold. Seasonic focus 550W should serve most builds well.

I always tell people never ever scrimp on PSU.

Thanks for the advice. first time heard of this brand Seasonic.

I was looking at amazon and only EVGA/ corsair / thermaltake comes up only.
Hmmm. think i'll go for the local seasonic in shopee / lazada

Just be careful of non legit seller, meaning if you see cheaper than others.
The goods maybe imported or refurbished.

Buy from overseas can save $ but if PC go kaput than...
