Is this enough for my new build?

I'm really not sure if I should go with a 650w or something more powerful? I don't want an overkill PSU but I want to be certain nothing bad happens.

Thank you!

My bad. Now it should be working

So after looking at your build, I would personally opt for a 750W considering you'll be running a 9900K and 2080 Ti. 650W would probably be fine but I do believe you'd be pushing it and I would be worried about the additional power draw if you overclock. 750W should provide enough headroom for OCing (if you're interested) and also allow for future upgrades.

Awesome! I'm definitely going to overclock and might add some upgrades in the future.

I would do so, but only to 750W:

Thank you.

I wanted to go full modular at first but it's not like if i'm going to see all the cables since it's all hidden behind the case. Any particular reason you suggested the Corsair HX750? Or it's just a personal preference?

it's similar in price to the one you had, but has Platinum efficiency, which means it will have lower power bills than the Gold ones would.

True, I might consider it!
