Noted, thank you.
I logged a ticket with TA to get the full model details for the first one. If it's indeed the NE550C NeoECO Classic then it would be a safe buy.

There's a serious shortage of decent PSUs at the moment...

Guys I cant enable freesync on this lg 32 inch what am I missing?
Which GFX card? Are you going into the Nvida driver panel and there is two options to enable it. Make sure you're using the displayport.

So it took 2 weeks for Dawn Wing to get my parts to Wootware. They just let me know the cpu is the problem and they are replacing it. I also asked them to assemble everything to make sure it all works before sending it back.

https://www.techpowerup.com/267430/...-410-threatening-both-i9-10900k-and-i7-10700k

AMD marshaled its retailer ecosystem to cut the pricing of its 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X processor down to USD $410. At this price, the 3900X is poised to threaten both the 10-core/20-thread Core i9-10900K and the 8-core/16-thread Core i7-10700K. Although bearing a $489 MSRP, the i9-10900K is seen going for upwards of $510. The i7-10700K, on the other hand, is being priced around the $410 mark. The iGPU-devoid i9-10900KF is expected to be around $20 cheaper, which should put its retail pricing around $480, while the i7-10700KF could go for around $380.

Pricing of both chips are along expected lines, as retail pre-tax prices typically end up 5% above the 1,000-unit tray pricing Intel announces for its processors. The Hardware Unboxed review of the i9-10900K shows it taking a roughly 7% lead in gaming performance over the 3900X (averaged), while falling 12% behind in multi-threaded compute performance. The i7-10700K is expected to be slightly faster than the i9-9900K. Adding value to the AMD chip is the fact that it includes a cooling solution in the retail package, which Intel doesn't, for the i9-10900K/KF and the i7-10700K/KF. A February 2020 report postulated that AMD has significant headroom to cut prices of its 3rd generation Ryzen processors to maintain competitiveness against Intel, until they are relieved by the "Zen 3" based 4th gen Ryzen "Vermeer" processors in September 2020.
The 3900X launched at $500, currently 415, 430 on Newegg, Amazon, 389 Microcenter.

Takealot got back to me and this https://www.takealot.com/antec-neo-eco-550w-psu/PLID44302276 the supplier says is the NE550M which is the modular version https://antec.com/product/power/ne550m.php and that corresponds to the TA description.

Wrt the Corsair VS550 https://www.takealot.com/corsair-vs550-watt-power-supply-80plus-white/PLID52289804 the seller Mineaway confirms they have stock.
