would Corsair Vs550 be enough for i7 3770k and Saphire r9 290 tri-x ?

Guy says if you only got 1 GPU, you rarely need anything over 500W.
But, you don’t leave yourself much room to work with. What if later down the track you want two GPUs in the same computer? That’s why I’m getting myself a 750W power supply.

Matthew says:

I have an FX 8350 (no OC), Gtx 750 TI and Corsair VS550 PSU.
What would be the most powerful GPU I can upgrade to without changing the PSU?

johnny.bastos says:

Would 500 watts be enough for a gtx 1060. This is a serious comment.

Anthony Clauser says:

“I’m going to try to keep this as simple as possible” – Ya. Good luck with that. This stuff is stupid complicated. NOt the most complicated thing in the world. But still stupid complicated.

the grinch says:

if you have alot of money and you don’t know what to get……. just get the most expensive power supply

One other one of the many the reason why you’ll want to start saving to your retirement is because you won’t need to carry on working. Those who are unprepared for retirement usually keep on working or later return to the workforce. Is this actually something that you just need to do? Additionally, remember your age and your health. It’s extremely unlikely that you may be ale to work till you die. That is why you must start saving for retirement, as you can not generate income for your self forever. Finally, social safety advantages are nice, but they will not cover your entire retirement dwelling expenses. Many financial advisors state you will want around 70% of your current earnings to live comfortably in retirement. Unfortunately, most individuals solely obtain about forty% of that from social safety benefits. Depending on how much you contributed through the payment of taxes, that quantity may be lower. Since you can’t depend on social security advantages to outlive, you might want to begin saving for retirement. As highlighted above, there are a variety of the reason why it is best to save for retirement. Your life is in your own arms, so begin saving today. Read more about investing :

kendall john says:

500 watts |14amp| it good to use in your computer ?

BrodyCanuck says:

If you plug your computer into a cheap surge suppressor, does that mean your power supply is getting less power supplied to it than its rated for? In other words…do I need one of those expensive surge protectors to get me the amount of power that my power supply needs?
