I am going to choose a 650 watt 80+ gold full modular for my pc. I am wondering though, will it be future proof because I dont want my power bill to go flying but I also want headroom. It will probably stay a 1080p 1448p rig

Without knowing exactly what you're looking at parts wise, unless you have specific needs for a m-itx build (thus a shorter PSU, in which case you may want to look at the Silverstone SX600g or Corsair SF600) then I'd plump for either the EVGA Supernova G2 or Supernova NEX 650W.

The NexG is a awful choice.

Why so?

It is based on an old design which doesn't perform that well any more and the components are not that good for the price it sells for

OKie doke - thanks for the qualification on that! :) I'll revise my advice hehe. Go for the Supernova G2!

It has mediocre/average performance all around, it is group regulated, and competes with units far out of its like league like the Evga G2 or the Corsair RMx or a Seasonic G.

Gonna get a 1060 or rx 480 eventually fyi

In that case, go with a 550W G2 or Corsair RMx as they will provide plenty of power for your build

Your power bill will not go flying through the roof. The psu only uses as much power it needs. I.e buying a 550 watts psu does not means its pulling that from the wall all the time.
