I have an EVGA 750 B3, which is a 750W fully modular Bronze rated unit manufactured by Super Flower. It's been perfectly fine for my R5 2600X and GTX 1070 based system. Only concern is the longevity of the sleeve bearing fan it has.

A lot of people recommend Seasonic's FOCUS Plus units.

I've had my eye on the EVGA 650 or 750 G3 for if I need to upgrade. It's also made by Super Flower, and it has a better rating and a better fan than the Bronze one.

Depend on what kind of money you wanna use I would recommend SeaSonic because they make solid powersupplies and have a great warranty.

You can look at their Focus/Focus Plus Series or the Prime Series and go with 80Plus Gold.

But if you got the time look at the master when it comes to PSU testing that's http://www.jonnyguru.com/ that man has tested a lot of powersupplies and is currently working for Corsair.

Where are you based and how much do you have to spend?
Have a look, get familiar with the cybernetics site, then do comparisons on price/warranty/noise/etc, then use a site to find pricing etc, i like this site as you can view prices and ETA results etc and it also has links to reviews
Also TPU has reviews, @crmaris is a great reviewer and as someone else mentioned jonnyguru is a good site have a look at reviews etc.
Hope that helps :)

I've a few of the 650w G+ and 850w G+ PSUs and they have been nothing but amazing, no issues with them at all :) Would highly recommend :)

Pretty sure a decent 450-500W will suffice for your rig.
Basically your 3800X will pull no more than 150W with OC, unless you are using some sort of fancy chiller for cooling and have it overclocked even higher. On stock it won't go over 120W in most situations.
Then, if we are really pessimistic, add another 75W for GTX1650, 50W for motherboard/RAM/SSDs, safe extra 25W for cooling and bling, and it totals up to at most 300W (realistically it'll be around 200W at full load).

My personal rig has a 1st gen R5 1600X under 240mm AIO and an RTX2060S, and I've just replaced my dead Seasonic S12II-450 EVO with a shiny new Seasonic SSR-550FX, so I can have a bit more headroom for R9 3900X and future GPU upgrades. Previous PSU died of old age and too much abuse. Over the past 6 years it powered 3 of my rigs, incl. highly-overclocked Westmere monster.
I'm more than confident that even with provisions for future GPU upgrades you won't need anything higher than what I have.

I'm running a 3700x and a 1080ti together without issue on a 550w corsair RMx, so a good 550w unit will be plenty for your system.

With this kind of hardware we are looking at 200~250W peak power draw while at most demanding gaming or at something that uses both CPU/GPU. But dont buy a 400W PSU... and you dont need a 650W as well.
If you dont planning to install a 200+W video card any time soon, a 550W is more than enough (even with 300W power draw), like a quality Corsair (TX/RM) or something equivalent.

650 watts is overkill really for that rig but I tend to go overboard on PSUs too.

Unlikely to draw over 300w total... 550-650w usually tends to have the best priced units of good quality though there are a few great ~450w models out there too.

Any one of these would suffice, If I were you I'd get the 550W RMx. Runs cool, efficient, has great performance, has great build quality and 10 years warranty. Your system will consume about 250W at full load, not overclocked. There is no need to go over 550W.

There are a lot of other options that are better than those and can at times be found around the same price or better. Among others Seasonics and other SuperFlower built parts...

you wouldn't break 300w with that system, any quality 450-550w will do the job. 650w is overkill

I would agree with Seasonic's results and would go with the 650 Platinum or Titanium
At 60% load your running about 95% efficiency

Seasonic PSUs have fan curves that are good, but not excellent. Corsair PSUs have excellent fan curves, so they run quieter. I'd go with the RMx anyday over the Focus Gold. It performs a tiny touch better and is much quieter.

Seasonic does tend to be aggressive with its fan profile but both PSU are excellent. I would get the cheaper of the two.

...and IMHO a titanium efficiency PSU is a bit overkill for a daily used PC. Unless we are talking about a mining rig with 700~800+W (24/7) it doesnt make much sense.
A gold PSU (90~91% eff) is more than adequate at 60~65% load.

I recommend having some overhead, sure less w would suffice but the optimal efficiency range of a psu is around 70% and it doesn't hurt to have the extra power if u ever want to do more, also the price difference isn't high enough to warrant not going for more watts than required.

As for specific ones i recommend :
superflower (leadex gold/plat)
Evga g2, g3
xfx xtr(not sure about xtr2)
seasonic
the more expensive corsair are good(in most occasions these have bad value)
etc..

I would just get the cheapest of these options with adequate power(650w most likely)
