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 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.
