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?

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.

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

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

I always tell people never ever scrimp on PSU.

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...
