Updated my GPU but realized I may need a new PSU. Advice please!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone. I'm quite tech illiterate but recently bought and hooked up an ASUS Rog Strix RTX2060 6GB Gaming card to my computer with these specs:

OS: Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit
System Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
System Model: M32CD_A_F_K20CD_K31CD
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 8118MB RAM
Page File: 8403MB used, 5089MB available

As for PSU:

The first time I booted up my PC after putting in the 2060 it started and then turned off suddenly and I thought that it could be a power supply issue. By itself a second later it booted up the BIOS screen and I clicked continue without changes and soon after everything worked fine (after I installed the GPU driver). The two LEDS on the GPU are always flashing white so from what I've read I think that's a good sign.

Can I play a heavy game like COD: Warzone or PUBG at high settings or should I stick to low settings until I can upgrade my PSU? As a note I would like to record and use Nvidia Highlights. Would the following PSU be a better idea with the specs listed or should I just stick with this one?

Your advice is greatly appreciated folks!

you are probably fine with that psu, but you should get better one soon. That psu is probably ticking timebomb.

wattage is enough but i would not trust that chinese psu,

 

it restarted because it did not know what that gpu was, this would have been avoided if you had DDU'd your old drivers.. (probably) 

 

DDU your old gpu drivers and install new ones for your rtx 2060

I don't know about the quality of that specific PSU, seems one from an Asus all in one desktop, probably nothing extraordinary, but Delta is normally a good manufacturer.

 

Anyway, 500W will be ok.

Your CPU and GPU together should draw roughly 300W when both under full load (this rarely happens in gaming), the whole system will never exceed 400W.

Personally, I would replace it with a TXm 550W

Thanks everyone for the info! Would anyone recommend this: ASUS ROG Strix 650 Full Modular 80 Plus Gold 650W for a PC with these specs or would it be overkill?

650W isn't overkill, though 550W would be fine too.

 

The Asus ROG Strix power supply is usually overpriced compared to the quality you get. But it'll work fine.

This only happened the first time you booted?

 

The powersupply is likely decent and shouldnt be causing an issue.

Actually this PSU us likely decent. 

 

Its a recent system integrator PSU from Delta. 

The rail layout checks out.

 

If what OP experienced happened once after changing the GPU, then its likely normal behavior.

If it only happened at startup the first time. Then its likely a non-issue. 

 

If you encounter it during heavier loads, then there might be something wrong. 

 

The PSU itself appears to be decent. Exactly how good i sadly dont know. 

 

What was this system equipped with before?

Yeah the PSU is fine then. Its used elsewhere in similar systems and overall seems like a decent unit. 

 

Run it for a while to see if anything comes up. For now i dont see a reason to swap the PSU.

Delta have been making PSU's for decades, they sell to system manufacturers and PSU rebranding companies. You hardly ever see the brand displayed as they mostly build for OEM's with the OEM branding on them.

Thanks for the info, I was actually just about to buy a new one before this post. I guess time will tell but someday I'll probably grab a 550 or 650W PSU
