Other details 

Current PC Specs: Can be found here: OhhVibez's Completed Build - Core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition, 400C ATX Mid Tower - PCPartPicker


So guys, I got a quick question. 

I managed to cop a 5950x, but just because I got lucky with getting a CPU doesn't mean my luck will get any better in the GPU department! Which means that I'm still stuck with my GTX 1070. :old-sad:

I have a 600W PSU currently powering the system and was wondering if you guys think that would be sufficient enough to use with my 5950x until I'm finally able to get a 3080 or 3090 which I'll be able to then upgrade to like an 850W or 1000W PSU?



Will my current 600 Watt PSU be enough to power a 5950X and a GTX 1070 even when under full load or will I have to upgrade?

We don't know, because we don't know which model PSU you have. Which model is it?
