So i have a 1080 and I’m at minimum recommended psu and some times I feel t doesn’t preform according to benchmarks, if I used the recommended would the card constantly run better?

Alias-elpiton says: will 500w be enough

xed alpha says:

In all fairness 2 HDD’s away from failure isn’t really that much headroom IMHO.

Hello everyone,

Im upgrading my old pc and i changed the ipgu to a GT 1030 (30 watt) , added 4 GB Ram, and changed the CPU E5500 to a Q6600 (50 watt increase). Also using one hard drive, will the 230 PSU keep up with it?

Thanks 🙂

Not sure why anyone would be surprised. I just upgraded my PC, which for the last couple of years has run a GTX 960 with a 450w PSU. I thought that was plenty.

Daniel Horne says:

Victor Arnett says:

1050ti ONLY uses 75 watts in case you wanna upgrade from your old card pulling 200 watts or more

Payne Hoss says:

i have a 550 evga gold plus running a stock fx 8350, 16gb of g.skill ram on a gigabyte 78lmt usb3 board. Im currently saving money to build an 8700k system with a 1080ti, so the first part im going to buy will be the 1080ti just to get the most expensive thing out of the way. i originally was going to save that to buy for last because i could get more of the other parts first rather than just one, but then i thought about just getting the 1080 ti and slapping it into my current build to boost the performance while i wait to get the rest. obviously i am well aware of big bottlenecking issues with such an insane gpu being paired with such an old cpu, but im not worried about that, my current gpu is just a 750ti so i know ill still get a good performance increase regardless of the bottleneck, but im just wanting to make sure my 550 watt psu will be enough for my current system with a 1080ti in it. oh and the specific one ill be getting with be the gaming X version from MSI.

Victor Arnett says:

You need 200 watts less than what people online say

Encepence says:

Thanks for this video 😉

SambabaL says:

It’s true that you don’t need a 850watt PSU for a mid to high end rig like this, not even a 750watt, but 450watt is cutting it a bit close when it’s pulling 430watt max. in a stress test. Just like with HDD’s it’s never exactly the amount of gigs as discribed on the box, it’s slightly lower. The same goes for PSU’s. So that 20 watts headroom is too close for comfort imo. Not to mention that it’s non efficiënt in power consumption. I would recommend a 550 watt and maybe a 650 watt.

Daniel Horne says:

plus my psu squeels lol
