So the age old question of how much watts does a gaming PC really need? Well we will be taking a look at a older Dell Optiplex 7010 DT, but they make other versions like SFF USFF and MT.
Many people want to buy SFF small form factor computers because they are cheap. You can pick them up for as little as $100 with a i5 or i7 processor in them and 16 GB of ram. You will need to upgrade the (GPU) graphics card so you can play games, but then lies the problem of the profile of the case and small power supply output. Nvidia GTX 1050ti is the go to card for most people using these small form factor cases. The (PSU) power supply is generally around 240w, 250w to 270 watts.
Watch the full video to see what best for you. the information I give is some general, basic information which can be used along with your own research to find the best solution for Choosing the Right PC Power Supply (PSU).
So Which Power Supply Should you Buy? depends of the computer parts. some PC hardware require a lot more power and need bigger PSU. Don’t just look at Watts, you need to also look at amps on the 12v rail and how many 12v rails there are. Try and buy a branded PSU with at least 80 Plus Bronze certification with a little more buffer in power than you need. So if you need 500w PSU maybe treat yourself to a 650w or 700w, why? So you are not running your PC at 90% to 100% capacity all the time and gives you a bit of room for upgrades. The PC will only draw the power it needs to run efficiently. So never cheap out on your power supply.
Warning: Never run power supply over its maximum recommendations, always stick to the recommend recommendations for that computer and power supply.
