Looking for a reliable PSU

My system was burned by a corsair cs650m. The warranty covered everything ( no idea why) and it is now time to build. I have a radeon r9 390 and an i5 6600k. I will be happy if you can offer me something that wont get me in the same trouble. Btw i live in Bulgaria and here EVGA is not an option.

    Depending on your budget, something along the lines of the Seasonic S12ii 520w/620w will cover your needs, this is a high quality budget PSU. (Not top-end like the EVGA's, but it is a good bronze rated PSU)

    There's also the Corsair RM650X PSU, which is much higher quality than the CS series.
  2. Not sure which power supplies are available for you so we'll need link to a site you can buy from, and your budget.

    Here they have 50$ difference. It is cheaper than the cs650 i had. If i judge by the price is the one going to fail me? And second on the box of my video card it says psu min 650 and on the website min 700. Is 620 going to be enough?

    For the R9 390 get a high quality 600 watts or better, even if a good 500 watts would already work fine.

    Definitely don't judge power supplies by price, judge by model.

    Which site are you buying your power supplies from?
  6. I am browsing through many sites here and conpearing products and prisec. pazaruvaj.com is gathering offers from diferent sites and if you want you can take a look what is mostly beeing offered here. And is the Seasonic S12ii 620w a good power supply?

    I've checked that site and the Seasonic S12II 620w is the best value :D. It's a solid power supply for the price and it will work with your build, but it doesn't have premium-ish extra's like modular cabling.

    The Seasonic M12II 750w is fully modular and is even higher quality, if you'd be interested in that.

    Corsair CX 650M is a good power supply unit too.
