Yes, but moving from 550w to 550w is a waste of money.  Since you are moving from that gx 550w, just get like a $70 or $80 600-700w psu.  550w is enough for a 8600k and a 1080ti though


I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

The thing is that my existing 550w GX series 80+ bronze is 5 years old, though it is working perfectly fine for me. I'm just worried that what if it doesn't last that long :s 

I wanted to go with an 80+ gold one for more future proofing.

You should absolutely not be overclocking with that motherboard. No VRM heatsinks on that thing. 

The TXM is fine.

You do realise there's more to a PSU than just the wattage?

Gold certification doesn't mean the psu will last longer.  If it's 5 years old now and still works fine, then just wait longer and get the best psu you need when you can afford it.

I can get the 650w varient of this series as well from a local shop. Should that be enough? in terms of quality and how long the components of that power supply would last?

You do realize that his 5 year old bronze psu has held up with this so far? Obviously the txm is better than what he has now, but why not wait a few more months if everything is fine now and get a g3 or something that is better than the txm?

I mean you don't need the 650w, but the quality of the txm is fine, you shouldn't have any issues with stock power (maybe minimal overclocking).  I just cite this whenever someone asks about a psu, and if they can afford a $70 psu, I just recommend whatever is closest to their budget in tier 1.

These are the only PSUs available in the area, my budget can at best goes to 13000rs.

Yeah you'll be perfectly fine with the 550w variant, and it's totally up to you whether or not you want the 650w one.

And an old, low end, grip regulated PSU should be used with a 1080 Ti? No. 

The G3 is technically better than the TXM? Sure. But worth saving up to get that thing? Absolutely not. The G3 should not be bought, due to its noise and protection issues. 

The TXM is already decent, it's not worth using a crappy PSU for months, just to get a G3. 

 

Either way, you're deflecting from the thing I pointed out, and that you still haven't addressed.

I think it's worth getting the TXM, it's a solid PSU and you don't wanna mess around with a 5 years old used PSU that's nothing special to begin with when you're connecting a GTX 1080 Ti to it.

 

I'd only turn on MCE to lock all cores on maximum boost using the D3H motherboard as it's VRM solution is not the most adequate.

I don't plan on Overclocking it all the way up to 5Ghz. Will probably do that after a year to around 4.6Ghz and that's about it. Will that be enough with the cooler i have and with this board?

I'll have a better powersupply by then. I'm going to get a good case right now, will survive with a GTX1050 till i get my PSU for the 1080ti. :D
