Do I need a new PSU for upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a decently old small form factor PC that I am upgrading to use as a Minecraft server.

The current specs of the computer are: 

CPU: Pentium G630 (REPLACING with Core I7 2600)

Mobo: chipset: H61 socket: LGA 1155

Memory: 8gb 2x4 DDR3 1333Mhz (REPLACING with 16gb 2x8)

SSD: 500gb sata 2.5in

PSU: 220w (according to newegg)

DVD-Rom (its 2020 not really necessary to keep)

PCI wifi card


I plan on replacing the CPU for a core I7 2600, and possibly replacing the ram for 16gb. 

I put this into Newegg's PSU calc and it said that it would take 191watts which is very close to the 220w that the PSU is rated for. My question is should I get a better PSU to power everything?

If I do need a new PSU I have no idea what form factor to get. 


Here are some pictures:

that psu is enough since you do not have a dedicated cpu. yes that psu is horrible but if you are tight on money htat psu will do. and psu calculators are a joke. they usually overestimate since you do not run the cpu, ram, fans and the storage at 100% all the time anyway
