Is my Power Supply Good Enough?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have a prebuilt PC with a GTX 1050 ti and an AMD X4 840 (huge bottleneck) running of an xilence 400W power supply. When it comes to my birthday, I am thinking of upgrading to a GTX 970 / RX 570 with a Ryzen 3 1200/2200, will I also need to upgrade my Power Supply from my Xilence 400W or can I run this system on 400W?

 

Thanks in Advance

What model is the PSU?

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Xilence 400W 

That's the brand, and the wattage. Not the model.

i would go with a 650w psu if you can always better to have more than you need, then not having enough.

Not what you were specifically asking for in this case but:

Note that the Ryzen 3000-series will release sometime soon and it might make the previous generations cheaper.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
