Hi there, I'm building my first PC and I was wondering if the Seasonic M12II-EVO 620 W would be enough for this build, mainly due to the MSI RX 480. Unfortunartely, in my country there aren't too many "good" PSU at the price I'm paying (around U$S 130, yeah, they are expensive here).

620 watts will be fine for what you are trying to do. You could even get away with 2 RX 480's with 620 Watts.

Given the wattage estimate you could prolly use their 520w model if that'll save you anything.

Don't use as5 tp btw, it's really old now and the supplied paste with the cooler will prolly be as good/better.

I already bought as 5 :(, I thought it was a must. Do you think that I should use it anyway or just stick with the stock one?

I would use the paste that comes with the cooler, maybe try and send the as5 back?

or keep it in case you mess up the cooler fitting.
