The link I agreed with wrote it's not one I would use.

Also I have to total up the Watts, then the Amperes per rail then double that, then select the PSU. It's a bit of work but PCs I've built run for years with really minor issues like worn out fans but little else.

And for now, no Seagates.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
