I'm considering this build: i3-6100, H110 mobo, R9 390 (see below). Estimated TDP is 407W, and for now I've got the EVGA 600B 80+ Bronze on the list (the 500B costs the same). I'm having trouble selecting a better PSU in the $50-60 range.
I don't intend to be overclocking the CPU (obviously :P), but I'd like to overclock the GPU. I may install other parts later on such as fans, ODD, multicard reader, SSD, and an HDD or two. Definitely wouldn't be crossfiring/SLI--if I spent more on the mobo. I'm mainly worried about the headroom.
With all that and overclocking the GPU, would a higher quality PSU of 500W be sufficient? Or should I be looking at the 550-600W range?
If I'm not overclocking the GPU, would 420-450W work well? (real scary headroom there).
(Note: non-modular is completely fine with me).
