The InWin 309 clocks in at a hefty $250 dollars and does not really offer too much out of the ordinary when it comes to the internal feature set.

As such, you should only buy the Dagger if you need two EPS connectors since the EVGA 650 GM only has one.

The Fractal Design Ion+ 760P is a very quiet high-performance power supply of fine build quality. Its highly flexible cables, which lack in-line caps, make cable routing and management considerably easier.

The ASRock RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+ is the fastest factory overclocked Navi card we've tested so far. We measured it to run almost 2 GHz real clock on average in our real-life, mixed gaming load. Temperatures are good, too, and the cooler includes idle-fan-stop.

Priced at $360, the PowerColor RX 5700 Red Dragon is an amazing factory-overclocked custom design for AMD Navi. Despite its dual-slot cooler, it runs very quietly, with good temperatures, and has idle-fan-stop, too. A second "quiet" BIOS lets you dial down noise levels even further, making the card whisper quiet.
