TX series is good. About the lowest tier Corsair PSU I'd consider (but RMx is preferable). Heat.

One caveat with the TX series: fans never ramp down they are always on. Quiet at idle though.

Don't buy this for 3080 / 3090. It's not enough.
I did well then, Won one the other day on eBay new and still wrapped for 45 quid.
It’s not a bad price. Couple of months ago I secured TX650M for the same price
Tempting. Doesn’t seem to be much around for decent PSU deals right now. £100 for the RM750 at curry’s seems a bargain, 550w is probably enough for me, but I keep telling myself I want 600-650w

They’ve all gone up recently. Only a couple of years ago you could get the EVGA GQ 1000W for under £100.

550W is probably plenty - it’s easy to overestimate what you actually need.
Good price for this psu
Paid this in december last year. Seems the going rate.
Well it was the going rate back then anyhow.
just built a PC with the 650 W version, no issues at all and very quiet even when gaming
think about a 5600 and 3060(ti or super) build will this be good enough?
I've got a home built PC from about six years ago with an Antec High Current Gamer 520W PSU, thinking of making a new PC would the Antec still work with the latest mobos regarding connections etc?

Yes, as long as it has the 24 and 8 pin mboard power connectors which I imagine it has.
Only issue might be your PCI-E power connectors for newer/est graphics cards but then they would also require a new PSU.
Had one of these before I upgraded to a 750w rmx ready for a 3080. Never had a problem with it, not the quietest, but did a sufficient job.
