RX 5700 XT Nitro+ with Evga 600 Watts PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there.
I wanted to get RX 5700 XT Nitro+ but i noticed on the website that recommended PSU is 650 watts, I own Evga 600 Watts 80+ PSU, I don't know if this is enough for this GPU, should I upgrade PSU or just get Nitro+?

600w is more than enough.  Those recommendations are WAY over what's needed.

Do you think my PSU is bad quality?
I have checked some of these ''PSU tier lists'' and I saw this Evga PSU at the bottom of list, I have read that bad quality PSU can be faulty even if it's good brand.

Is this the w1 model? If so then yes for sure it is a very bad unit and should not be purchased.

600W is fine but that unit is of exceptionally poor quality. If you can, for that card I would recommend a 550W/650W model. What region of the world are you in (so I can check stock)

Can you recommend me some decent PSU that would be good in case of a future upgrades?
I was thinking about be Quiet! Pure Power 11 700 Watts.

I just want a  good 80+ gold PSU.

The Pure Power 11 is a pretty good unit. 500W or 600W would be enough, even through a couple upgrades.

 

For an example of how little power modern systems use, I used to run an overclocked 8700K @ 4.8GHz and a Vega 64 on a 450W PSU (Wouldn't recommend, though). As long as it's good quality, it'll do fine.

I am from Europe, Poland.
I was thinking about getting be Quiet! Pure Power 11 700 Watts, but 650 might be more than enough for future.
Any recommendation would be appreciated.

500 or 600W model is more than enough. The Pure Power 11 is a pretty good PSU, with decent efficiency too.

What about Be Quiet! Straight Power 11?
I was also thinking about Corsair RMi/RMx Series but I bet that at this range most of known brand PSUs are just more than enough and its all about picking good priced one.

Maybe you can send me a link to a webshop? I can look for the best PSU for the price range.

Anything I browse is in Polish.
I dont know if you want to struggle with looking through different language and different prices.

These are two best tech selling sites in Poland, prices are way higher than in North America because we have high VAT in Europe.
