I'm looking at getting a new PSU for my system which can be found here:
Motherboard: ASUSTeK SATA 6Gb/s DDR4
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6-core processor
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 580
RAM: Single 8gb XPG ADATA DDR4 stick
Storage: 1 TB Hard Drive
PSU: Thermaltake 500W 80+
Cooling: Deep Cool brand fan mounted on the mobo that came with the PC
I have a 1080p monitor and typically like to play games like Fallout 4, Warframe, Dark Souls 3 and Star Wars Battlefront 2 on medium to high settings.
My current PSU is the Thermaltake 500W 80+ PSU it came with. I know I need a new one but I'm not sure how to best determine what's right for my build. I've looked at the Cooler Master PSU calculator but can't quite figure out how to fill in some of the information. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how much wattage I need or be willing to help me figure out how to fill out this PSU calculator, as I'm unsure about some of the specific components it asks for information on. I'm not entirely sure if my current PSU is modular or not as I've not found much solid information on it, so I'm not sure what would be compatible with my system. I'm not sure how I would even tell, but I've been trying to read up on PSU's to figure out what I can. Again, any advice or recommendations are much appreciated.
