HELP! Can I run RX 570 8Gb on 450w PSU? (COOLER MASTER ATX 80PLUS BRONZE)

I’m having 450W PSU and thinking about upgrading my GPU from APU to RX 570 8Gb and I’m confused because it’s say recommended PSU is 450W and somewhere else 500W...really need help thanks.

On AMD's website they state the requirement for PSU is 450W so you are on par with it. Though if you start adding in a bunch of extra ports or drives/fans you might be going over a limit. It depends what else is in your PC.

 

Coolermaster do have a "calculator" for PSU. Take it with a grain of salt though as it is similar to the bottleneck calculators and arent 100% accurate. But its worth a look.

thank for answer. Its MasterWatt PSU. And this is my current Power consumption, around 120 W. I'm running Ryzen 5 2400g with Vega 11.

Yeah, a Masterwatt is pretty alright, and should be perfectly fine.

 

Also, if you have the CoolerMaster Master Watt Lite isn't so good, but will be fine with a RX 570 anyway, but I wouldn't buy it if you don't have it already.

 

400W is more than enough for most systems; you can run a GTX 1080ti and an i7 8700k on that.

 

Don't look at software readouts for power consumption/voltage. If it doesn't have a volt meter and ammeter built in, it won't show accurate readings.

A GTX 1060 6GB is faster than an RX 570 4/8GB.

 

I think the GTX 1060 3GB is slower than a RX 570, plus 3GB of VRAM isn't enough IMO.

 

I didn't say the GPU was bad, just double check you aren't getting a MasterWatt Lite, The picture you sent was just a MasterWatt though (which is the good model).

I have the MasterWatt without lite. Ye its faster but its cost more it cost like 420 € (474$) and im a student and im on the budget and looking for a great deal for decent performance. (playing new titles, editing, etc) what do you think about diffrence between vega 11 and rx 570/gtx 1060?
