    I am looking for new PSU as my current Corsair VX550 PSU lasted 12 years. I need semi modular or fully modular. I think I should get wattage between 500W to 750W.

    I am using :
    CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600x (95W)
    Motherboard : Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus
    RAM : 2 X 8GB A-Data XPG 3200Mhz CL16
    SSD : Silicon Power 1TB NVMe M.2 Gen 3
    GPU : Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan (125W)
    Cabinet Fans : 3 (120mm)
    * No LED strips or RGB.

    I might buy a new GPU like RTX 3060 or 3060ti in future once price gets back to normal. So even my next GPU won't suck more then 200W. Also my current PSU didn't had 4pin EATX12V for extra power to CPU. I looked some models today but they also don't have that connector. Does it come only with high end PSU?

    Out of this list the Corsair is what I would gravitate towards, that said, watch reviews, read reviews.. do your research before purchasing.

    What about something like a be quiet! Pure Power 11 700W? is that within your price range?

    I thought all new psu's have the extra 4 pin.

    You need to be a corsair fan to know which one of theirs is the iffy line-up and which the top-line, out of your list i'd choose Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 V2 Full Modular.
    Before you hit the buy on any of these do a quick google search on whichever one you go for just to be safe, read user reviews and even pro reviews if available.

    What about ASUS full modular? Would sure look good with that motherboard.
    No idea about performance.

    It will sound harsh and uncalled for.
    Never skimp on the PSU.
    With all the respect for low budget and money management, this step is important. Every computer runs with power, electricity provided by the PSU.
    Get a top tier quality PSU, it will well worth it.
