Is 600 watts enough for rtx 3070 ?

Hello
I'm about to swap my gtx 1070 with rtx 3070 but I don't know if my PSU is enough, I will change my PSU but not now.
This is my configuration :
 » Cᴘᴜ: i7 8700k
 » Gᴘᴜ: EVGA GTX 1070 SC
 » Mᴏʙᴏ: MSI Z370 Tomahawk
 » Psᴜ: SilentiumPC Vero L2 600W 80+ bronze
 » Cᴏᴏʟᴇʀ: CPU SilentiumPC Fera 3
 » Rᴀᴍ: G.Skill Aegis DDR4, 2x8GB, 3000MHz, CL16
 » Ssd:Crucial 500GB 2,5"
» HDD:Toshiba P300 1TB
 » Cᴀsᴇ: SilentiumPC Gladius M35W Pure Black

I want to buy a new RTX at the premiere

If it was a good 600w PSU I would say yes. However, the one you have right now is low quality. I would upgrade that first, even if it means waiting to get a 3070.

Take a look at the PSU tier list, get something 600w+ in A or B tier.

600w are enough, but the psu you have is such low quality, I wouldn't even use it with your current system, nevermind the 3070 upgrade.

Just because the man is hoping to blow out his whole system with it, so he can upgrade entirely... you don't need to say it out loud!  :)

 

 

* yes, you're right tho*

 

OP - Get a good 650w PSU and you'll be fine.

It'll run.  Just like bald tires will move your car.  Safe?  Sure, for how long?

 

That's what folks are getting at.

 PSU was from my first config, before upgrade to this one I asked some people if it will run my current config and they said yes also they said its quality PSU. I knew that I will have to change this PSU but I thought it will do, anyway I will listen to you and I will buy this PSU.

So I was thinking that if I change PSU for 750w, maybe i should go for 3080?

Good choice. 750W should handle anything you put in your system, as long as you don't try ti SLI or something.

If you're willing to spend the extra money for 10-30% better performance, and it's worth it to you, then that's a good idea.
