Wattage for Ryzen 7 2700x w/ Vega 56

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone.

So i've been reading countless threads about the wattage i will need for a system i'll be buying parts for tomorrow. The specs are as follows

Ryzen 7 2700x
Vega 56 Pulse
16gb DDR4 Corsair Vengence 3000mhz
2tb HDD

240gb SSD
Cryorig H7 Air cooler

So as i said, i am reading threads and forums and it seems like no one can agree on the PSU needed to power a system like this.

Fan boys say 750w while others say 500,550 and 650w.

My question is, can i actually buy a decent PSU like a CorsairTX 650w and be okay? Or do i need to have a 750w PSU.

Thanks!

you should be fine with the 650w, just get a reliable power supply

can't help you much with choosing one, there's a PSU tier list thread somewhere

PSU prices seemed to have gone up since last year.  That's a bummer.

yes, the TX650 or even a 550 is a good idea for your build.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions
