It will work fine, 550w is enough for a 9900k and 2080ti and you're way bellow that :)

Depends of maker and model, if it's a good model then it's enough.


... but I'm no expert

What is your power supply?
The monitor has its own power supply which will plug in to the wall and doesn't consume any power from the computer power supply.

The lowest tier. Tier D

Suggesting to buy a better one. Like Corsair RM550x or something like that.

Remember back in the CRT and Windows XP days we still had this sort of thing? powering up the monitor directly from the power supply:

Oh the nostalgia~

 

 

Either ways, yes we know 500w suffices but asking what model it is specific is a must to cover all bases.

 

I found a mention of the TR2 S Power supply by @-The_Mask- at jonnyguru suggesting it is double forward design with group regulation which makes it to my understanding prone to coil whine when powering something like the 5700XT and it certainly isn't exciting.

 

About it being a safe bet or not though I'm not sufficiently experienced to say.

this could be the reason of why my corsair vs450w fried on first day or a faulty product?

Corsair VS Series and now your TR2 S are both considered low end Power Supply units.

 

I would suggest against both line ups to power up a current generation video card like a 5700XT since these power supplies have old topology that simply doesn't meet the demands of the video card well enough to work optimally, and that's without going on the protections present on these products (or lack of).

 

Something like Corsair CX Grey Label units uses latest topology and are better value in the terms of reliability even if they cost a little bit more.

That is a direct pass-through straight from the cord coming from the wall , monitors have never used the computers PSU for it's own power. So the wattage on the PSU have never mattered for powering the monitor as it has it's own PSU. It was just a feature to have one less cable from the wall to your whole setup. Think of it like a power strip, one outlet from the wall connected to many different peripherals.

Nope. You just bought something worse than what you already had :) Good job.

(Why go through the effort of uploading an image here, instead of just telling us the unit's name?)
