please help!! I am building a PC with Ryzen 7 3700x, RTX 2070 super and the Asus Tuf x570 plus mobo. Need help with choosing a psu

Recommended Posts

As mentioned in the title, I am building the PC with those specs. This is my first build. I got a new packed Antec VP630F psu from a friend. I know this psu is quite old and the OEM for this model is Delta Electronics. I read online and it seems like this power supply has all the necessary features like over-heat protection, over-current protection, over-voltage protection, overpower protection, under-voltage protection and it is 80+ certified
 
Would this power supply be okay for my build? I think I can also go to Bestbuy and get the Corsair CX750M, it is around $105. Would going with Corsair be a better option or the Antec power supply should be fine?
 
Thank you in advance.

we're pretty close to a CPU reveal from AMD< and the 3070 has come out and replaced the 2070 so you should consider that instead.

 

the antec VP-F might be old, but it is actually on the tier list of our forum. it's in tier C, so I don't recommend it for a high end PC.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Thank you, I actually already bought the CPU and GPU some time back. So I'll go with the CX750M then.
