Looking to upgrade to a rtx 2060 but not sure about my psu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a ryzen 3 3200g, gtx 1080 3gb, 16gb 3600mhz from Corsair, asrock b450m pro4 mini atx motherboard, and a Corsair 450 watt bronze psu. I am currently it the upgrading stage and have just upgraded my ram and bought an aio. I want to upgrade my graphics card next. I understand the bottlenecking of the 3200g on a rtx 2060 but am more interested in the straight upgrade now. Later I am planning to upgrade my cpu. I would like to know if 450 watts is enough for a rtx 2060.

As for now, it should be fine.

If you upgrade your CPU down the line, this psu have to go.


So buying both now, or buying both later, your pick.

First, why "upgrade" GTX1080 to RTX2060 ? It's slower. Sure, 3GB VRAM are a bit low for today but i wouldn't call that an upgrade exactly. Second, there's several Bronze certified Corsair 450W PSUs, which one ? But 450W are enough technically if this PC would be used only for gaming (i.e not for rendering or mining and such).

Tag or quote me so i see your reply
