Is 750 Watts overkill for a 2600X and 3070?

Is 750 Watts overkill for my config? I am upgrading my GPU to 3070, I have a 1060 currently. Also I plan to upgrade my CPU in the future.


My config :

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

GPU - MSI or Asus RTX 3070 
RAM - 16GB 3000 MHz
Motherboard - Gigabyte X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING

PSU (that I was planning to get)Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2 80 Plus Gold

Nope, that's actually what I would recommend for a system like this, though 650w should also work fine. I do however recommend getting a different model PSU.


Edit: the MSI A850GF is a great PSU. It's better than the MWE, and now it's on sale too so it's cheaper. 850w is high, but it's not going to cause any problems and would actually be good if you plan on reusing it for a future build or upgrade the GPU again.


Edit 2: you can also save some more money with the MSI A750GF, but imo the price difference isn't worth 100w less. You can also get the PSU @Tan3l6linked if you want, but honestly there's nothing wrong with some headroom and the units I linked are cheaper and just as good.
