A friend put a build together for me on pc part picker. When I was ready to buy the power supply. It said it was compatible. I clicked on it, and it brought me to amazon, and I chose the first option. All the options showed different wattage. Does it matter what one I ordered? Do you think they are all compatible, or should I have done more research. I'm afraid that I spent almost $600 on the wrong one. I'm sorry I'm not explaining this well. Im not very experienced when it comes to computers. View: https://imgur.com/a/k5SKPYw

well, the corsair calculator only recommends a 650watt for that but also shows an 850. Having more than you need gives space for possible future upgrades

Could be worse, could have ordered too small a PSU.

Careful buying hardware :)
Check you are right before clicking purchase.

Is there any downside to having more power than needed? Other than cost.
