395w for 550w PSU

20 hours ago, Noobatologist said:

Hey, I am building a system but using PC Part Picker, the avg. w would equal to 395w.

The PC parts are:

 

CPU: i7 6700k

Mobo: ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti 3GB

RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 

Boot Drive: Kingston A400 120GB

Hard Drive: WD Red 1tb

Case: Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 3.1 TG

PSU: Corsair CX550M

 

The reason for these parts are because the CPU, Mobo, GPU and Ram are being sold for 500 AUD which is some insane value, I already have the Boot Drive, Hard drive, Case and PSU but wondering if I should upgrade the PSU since it seems a little low headroom. Thank you!

550W PSU is totally fine for your build

It's more than fine.

Would it affect me if I overclocked?

Then I'd recommend getting a Meshify C TG (Black or white).
