Planning an upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am planning to upgrade my CPU from a Ryzen 1600 to a Ryzen 2700X relatively soon. Here is my current part list. What I am wondering is should I upgrade my PSU? Will 650 wats be enough?

You should be alright as long as you don't do any very heavy overclocking.


PC: CPU - 8700K 4.8ghz 1.15V  |  GPU - 5700XT 2100mhz 1.145V target  |  Motherboard - Aorus Z390 Pro Wifi | RAM - Ballistix sport LT 3200mhz red @ 4400mhz 17-22-22-39 2T 1.428V  |  Cooler - nh-d15  |  SSD - 960 evo 250GB, mx300 750GB, mx500 500GB  |  PSU - 750W G2  |   Case - Cooler Master MasterBox 5

No, that PSU is old and yuck. Assuming you have selected the correct Corsair TX (CMPSU-650TXV2) in your PCPartPicker.

 

Replace it. A good 400W is easily enough for your build.

 

Where are you from? What stores are you buying stuff from?

Ryzen 3000 is around the corner i would wait the less than 3 months for launch. also you can almost half your build cost going thru eBay or second hand sites and even upgrade further for less! for example your able to get a kraken x62 (280mm) AIO for $80~ on ebay

 

 

 

ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming K4  this is a much better board IF you stay on 1st gen ryzen


There is no enemy. The foe on the battlefield is merely the manifestation of that which we must overcome. The doubt, and fear, and despair. Every battle is fought within. Conquer the battlefield that lies inside you, and the enemy disappears like the illusion it is.
