Good GPU that works with my PSU

I am looking to upgrade from my 1650 Super, and I was also wondering if the CX650 is good enough for the likes of a 3060 with everything included in my system

650 is enough for those components, that's a really expensive one though

Consider this one Instead

I already have the CX650, I wanted to clarify IF the CX is powerful enough and reliable enough to withstand the likes of a 3060 or even 3060 Ti

A 650W PSU is the recommended capacity by Nvidia for RTX 3060 Ti, therefore it should be okay.

However, you should check each AIB's recommended PSU, because AIB cards could draw a lot more power than the reference model.

 

Another thread discussing the same thing.

Which one would you recommend? Personally nothing OC out of the box.

Cheapest ones usually don't have OC, like the Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge, recommended PSU is 650W, non out of box OC (AFAIK) because there is another OC variant.

The cx 650 is enough to power your system

Should work, I run an Asus KO RTX3060ti-8GB-OC, and my APC UPS indicates a 450W-500W peak load. It will do it, but just. I would recommend a 750-850W later, but the 650 should be okay for awhile. However, my old man was an electrician for years and he always referred to a 10% tolerance over or under, which might suggest a 650W potential output is getting pretty taxed around the 575W-585W mark, as that 650W is likely a surge load rating.

 

OP, you may need an adapter for PCIe power, some lower output PSUs might have only a 6-pin, versus a 6+2.

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

CX650

It can run a 3070 without any issue so a 3060 Ti is totally fine.

It has two 6+2 pin connectors, prechecked
