is Corsair VS450 enough?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im planning to upgrade my pc one by one and right now i have i3-4160, 2x4GB Ram and VS450w psu. I plan to upgrade my gpu to RX 5600 XT but will my psu handle the load just fine? Am I able to get it up and running with light games? Or should I need to get my psu replaced immediately? Thanks in advance!

depends on the model year of the PSU... What colour is its label?

Then no it's not good for the upgrade. Heck it's not good in the current machine either.

Nope. At the very minimum, I'd get something like a CX450/CX450M, but it depends on the stock and pricing in your area. What options do you have?

No point in pairing an RX 5600XT with an i3 4160. Upgrade the platform first.

consumer reviews don't matter for psus, since a consumer doesn't have proper tools

 

a cx550m would work, but it's generally high priced for what it is

Are we talking about a new VS450 with the grey label or with the orange label? Those with the orange label are shit, get a new one. Altough even if you have the newer one, you should check if it has enough PCIe power cables for the GPU.

Also, a 5600XT is way too much for an i3 4130 to handle; upgrading to Ryzen should be your first priority here.
