  1. Thanks for the answers guys. Will definitely use what you mentioned. I have a new ROSEWILL ARC 750watt psu at the moment. I dont see it listed on the psu tier. Good enough? https://www.newegg.com/rosewill-arc-750-continuous-750w-at-40-celsius-degrees/p/N82E16817182294
  2. Greetings all. System builder for many years. Attempting to calculate the wattage for a new gaming build. I have a ryzen 5 2600 and an MSI Geforce 1660 Super (one, no sli) 1 SSD 1 7200rpm HD Asus B450 Tomahawk motherboard. I purchased a 750watt psu to go with it. When I googled the parts, The wattage says 450watts and 370watts just for the video card and cpu. Yet when I used the cooler master watt calculator recommended by linus in his wattage video, the numbers are much lower. When I use MSI's power calculator I get different numbers entirely. This puts me well over spec. Currently have a Rosewill 750watt psu but have not hooked up yet. Machine not yet built. Don't want to risk shorting out. Do I need an upgrade? Attached pics for the results I get from these conflicting calculators.
