ASUS RTX 2070 EVO with a 550w psu?

Hi guys, 


Will a Seasonic Focus Plus 550w Gold be enough for the ASUS RTX 2070 EVO? I've used outervision's calculator and it says I have more than enough for the card. The only thing that worries me is that ASUS themselves recommends an 850w psu for this card according to their website



My full specs are:


Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 5

Corsair h110i GT

16GB GSkill RipjawsX

500gb Samsung 860 Evo

1tb WD Black

500gb WD Blue

Seasonic Focus Plus 550w Gold


EDIT: I think I might have posted at the wrong section. I can repost this over at the PSU section if needed

The big issue with PSUs lately has been the spike draw from new CPUs.  You’ve got an old cpu that doesn’t do that as much though.  I’m not sure how hard on PSUs the 2070 is by itself.  Could be fine.  Not 100% though.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

I have the same PSU. I am running OC 10600k and 2080 super with ease. Gamers Nexus did the testings and you could also run OC 9900k and 2080 ti.
