be quiet! straight power 10 800w bn237

I am about to buy this PSU. It is labelled tier 2 at tomshardware (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html), but I can barely find any customer reviews. Is it actually a good one?

(I will use it with i7 8700k and 1080ti, but I want 800w because it is now being sold for a very good price in my country)

Its a decent psu but Its already almost 4 years old. Also for a i7 8700k and 1080ti 650W would be more then enough.

What is your country and budget?

Is it bad that it is 4 years old? About 650w, I just want to leave space for overclocking and future upgrades. By the way, don't you know, how much will such rig need considering overclocking?

The country is Russia. I have a budget of about $175. But PSUs cost about extra $30 or something here. And it is not profitable to order it from US or Europe because of the shipping costs.

No its not bad but for the budget you want to spend on a psu you can get a newer one with the latest tech and one thats fully modular.

At absolute max with cpu and gpu at 100% load (which will in most use cases never happen) and at highest overclocks that system can use aaround 530W.

Cpu power consumption source: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-coffee-lake-i7-8700k-cpu,5252-12.html

Gpu power consumption source: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/msi-geforce-gtx-1080-ti-gaming-x-11g,5036-4.html

So if you plan to add another 1080ti in the future then sure 800W will be enough but if you stay with 1 gpu 650W (even 550W) would be more then enough. But in the end its up to you. If you want a psu with more wattage then go for it.

If you can look out for SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 650W https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WrNypg/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-650fx or Corsair RM650x https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Rp8H99/corsair-power-supply-cp9020091na or EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/y88H99/evga-supernova-g3-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0650 they are all very very good psu's. Or the 750W/850W equivalent if you want one with higher wattage.

Thank you a lot for your explanation! :) Yes, I've already checked them, and they are either unavailable here or cost unreasonably much (literally twice as much as the amazon price). But I will definitely consider your thoughts about 650 ones when buying!

can you give me a link(s) to some of the shops you are looking for a psu? Will see if i can find one or a couple that are good.
