cpu:150W

gpu:250W

rest of system:100W

 

you can run on a 650W psu just fine.

the problem with your current psu is its low quality, not its wattage

I wouldn't say it's ideal, but it should work. It's one of the only decent PSUs out of Thermaltake's Smart lineup.

Don't expect it to be quiet though, both because of its double forward topology (which might lead to coil whine when paired with a GPU like the 3080) and fan curve - according to Aris' review of the unit, before you hit even 500W of output you're already in 40dBA territory.

 

Personally, I'd get a new unit - something like an RM650x/750x, Straight Power 11 650W/750W or Ion+ 660W/760W should work nicely in there. Considering you're spending $700+ on a GPU, you've probably got the cash to spare on a PSU upgrade.

 

But since you asked whether you need an upgrade - likely not.

Still, wait for reviews to see how power hungry these new GPUs really are. They should be out in a couple of days for the 3080.
