FrostTrapQueen says:

Im making a build with a 1070ti and an 1800x, is 750 watts enough? Or should i use 1000 watts

George Beckford says:

thanks for all of those info it is really helpful ………ok i have an asrock ddr3 mb dual core pentium 2.50 per channel + a msi geforce gt 710 ddr3 1gb graphics card and 3 seperate hard disk what power supply would u recommend to use what wattage ?

James french says:

600 watts is overkill for most peoples computers. Really. Even with a moderate overclock, i7 and a 1070.

Jesus Jarito says:

Thanks man for this video. I am wondering if my EVGA 650 watts 80+ gold rating is enough to run a 2nd GTX gaming x 1060 in SLI. My existing component are:

I5 7600k
MSI GTX 1060 gaming x
18GB dual channel gskill trident z rgb
2 HDD (4tb and 1tb)

Thanks bro

Leo Lost says:

Hi! A future build with an i7-9700k + ASUS Hero XI and a 1070ti, using an AiO Corsair H100i v2 + 2 SSD’s + 2 x 8gb DDR4 Kingston memory + 3 x Thermaltake Riing 120mm White led fans + ASUS Cerberus Keyboard and Mouse, using a XFX XTR 650w 80 Gold PSU; will it be enough? Thanks!

Guilherme Andrade says:

I bought a GTX 1070 EVGA and i5 8400 with a 550w Corsair PSU, is that enough or I just screw it up?

Randy Espoda says:

There is more to reality than just 600W.

How much Watt do you recommend for Ryzen 7 1700 + gtx 1060 ?

Christopher Aguilar says:

Exactly right, a very reasonable explanation on a subject that always seems to draws way to much anecdotal hyperbole. (No pun intended). When switching power supplies became the norm, the math changed a bit, as voltage stabilization became more critical with that design. I often hear stories about how PSU failures bring down individual components or entire systems. I have never experienced that on any power supply failures I’ve had.. I’m wondering what point of failure would do that? Over voltage maybe ? It’s a wonder then why PSU’s and/or motherboards don’t include fused/circuit protection like most high wattage power supply’s or even power conditioners found in audio/video applications like home theater. Sometimes you find these safeguards on UPS’s or power-strips, but that doesn’t always help with PSU failure further down the chain or would it?

is it good to have 750W ?

Plenus says:

Just install a nuclear power plant and ur all set.

Arthur 94 says:

Is 450w enough for a ryzen 5 1600 (for overclocking) and a gtx 1060 3 or 6 gb?

t h e b o o n k e r says:

My psu is 102,000 watts. Is that good for a PC from 2003?

Darrick says:

A system I’m building which includes an 8700k with a 1080ti comes to 489w on system builder. Would an 850w gold psu be viable?

Intelligenkeit says:

i was on their page, i searched for the power consumption tests and i didnt find it…

Jadon Harper says:

Greg you forget the power of Solar Panel technology. My Electric bill is $3 a month.

미띤새끼 says:

I got a i7 8700 and gtx 1080 and got estimate load watt of 386watts and was recommended 436watts, will a 500w do fine?

MemeMan says:

If you have overkill is it bad?

William Eley says:

I’m going for a r5 1600 and a 1060 6gb which seems to pull about ~300w, what is the BEST VALUE psu I should go for that will still work above what it needs to
