Is 450w enough to power my pc?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone!

I recently upgraded my CPU from Intel G4560 to i5 7500. Right now, i have GTX 1050 ti, and im planning to buy GTX 1660. I have Corsair VS450 PSU. I know, i know, this PSU is not really reliable, hell, it is even considered bad, but it did a fairly good job powering my G4560 and GTX 1050 ti. My question is, should I buy a new PSU, or is 450W enough for i5 7500 and GTX 1660? I do plan on buying a new PSU, thinking of buying a 650W one, but right now I dont have enough budget for both GPU and PSU. So that's why I want to know if I can live with a 450W PSU for 2 months or so, and then i could upgrade my PSU.

Yeah, it's fine. 450W is more than enough for an i5 7500 and a GTX 1660.

The fact of the matter is that you always want a good PSU in a system you care about. Also, why are you getting a 7500? Did you find a good deal on one?


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

Indeed I did. It was 129£ on Amazon. Also, I didnt want to upgrade my motherboard, at least not yet.

Sorry but that's a terrible deal, the i3 9100f is £90. Yeah you have to replace the motherboard but selling the current one recoups quite a bit of the cost and it's got much better performance.
