"Selecting a Power Supply"


          

How important is efficiency? Can I go below bronze? Besides saving electricity, will a more efficient power supply give better performance?
Will it last longer?

One thing I have never skimped on is a power supply if you go below bronze you'll likely end up with something with cheap components that might put other parts at risk. Stick with well known makers like EVGA Seasonic some Corsair models. Less ripple and better over current protection. There are other makers that's just a couple examples.

I have not needed to buy a new power supply for a lot of years, but have had good luck with PC Power and Cooling. https://www.pcpowerandcooling.com/

I am thinking of buying this one. It has a 5 year warranty. At my age, it may be overkill.

Decent power supply go for it. Not a bad price either.
