I am uncertain about my current specs for my PC as I feel more inclined to upgrade to getting the RYX 3070 but I am not sure if I would need to upgrade my power supply. I currently have a corsair vs650w but I am not sure if I would be able to run it. My specs currently right now is a Z270E Asus Gaming Motherboard

I7-7700k 4.2ghz quad core

2x8gb vengeance RAM

500gb 970 EVO Plus NVME SSD

1tb SATA SSD (not sure what brand)

250gb SATA SSD (not sure what brand)

1TB HHD (not sure what brand)

Current GPU is a GTX 1050 OC 2GB 


I want to upgrade my PC to be well and truly ready for an upgrade so I ain't sure if my PC PSU will be good enough for the new Graphi card

Q: Will my powersupply work with the new RTX 3000 Cards

  • A: NVIDIA gave the recommended power supply wattages for use with the RTX cards  when paired with the most power hungry mainstream CPU in their presentation. These are 650W for the 3070 and 750W for the 3080 and 3090. The cards themselves take 220W, 320W and 350W respectively. Depending on your CPU, motherboard and other components most systems will not go past around 200~250w so if you are above 750w you are almost guaranteed to be fine unless you run a Threadripper or Xeon system. For everything else 650W will be perfectly fine even with a 3090.

Do NOT use that PSU with a $500 Graphics Card. It is designed for iGPU office systems, not high-end gaming builds.
