Psu powerful enough for new gpu?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I am thinking of getting a rx 560 or a rx570 for my pc but i dont know if my psu will deliver enough watts to keep it up
the psu is a Cooler Master MasterWatt Lite 400W 85% efficiency
my build is:
Gigabyte B450M DS3H
Ryzen 3 2200g
2x 4GB DDR4 (3000Mhz) RAM sticks (idk what brand probably corsair)
Cooler Master MasterWatt Lite 400W
1x 120GB SSD
1x 500GB 7.2K RPM SATA HDD
1x 120mm fan
A shitty case.

I tried out one of those wattage calculator websites and i got this result (EXCLUDES THE RX560 OR RX570 INTO CALCULATION):
A load wattage of 191 Watt
A recommended wattage for my psu of 241 watts

Im thinking of either a rx 560 or a rx570, will either of these work if i stick them in my pc with my current PSU or do i have to upgrade to keep my pc from exploding
and if both are possible which one do you recommend best, (dont worry about how much they cost, only performance and power consumption i.e headroom)
