My System

The Apevia brand is not known for making high quality stuff.

Also it is generally recommended to get a PSU that is at least 80 PLUS "Bronze" certified.

80 PLUS certified means the supply is certified to be at least 80% efficient across the entire range of expected loads. Typically, power supplies are very inefficient and peak at only around 70% efficiency. That means for every 100W pulled from the wall, 30W is wasted in the form of heat.

And most are efficient at just one or two load levels. For many electronic devices that present a fairly steady load on their supplies (like a TV, for example), that is fine when the supply is matched to that load level.

But computers are constantly demanding a wide variety of loads from just a few watts when idle, or several 100 watts when heavily tasked. So having a supply that maintains consistently high efficiency level across all expected loads is more desired. Seeking out a supply that is 80 PLUS certified ensures the supply can do that.
