Hi I have the Corsair TX 550 M and really like it. It's semi mod which is the only thing I might change next time. It's 80+ gold and was really affordable. Falls in the middle of Corsair's line of PSU's. Runs my gtx 1080 and i5 8600k no problem. System probably draws no more than 300w or so. PSU's are the most efficient in the middle of their maxed range. Have fun.

Its a good psu. 450W version would also be more then enough for this build.

I know, the system might not even need over 350W, but I want to overclock the system and I might stick with the power supply for future builds and upgrades.
