Hey guys, my friend is building system and I'm helping him. At first we had smaller budget compared to now and we had RTX 3060 in our plans, so we already bought this power supply Toughpower GF1 750W. I checked the reviews and also tier PSU list here, and it's in A tier category, which means it's one of the best power supply. So, since budget got increased my frien's apetiate got bigger too lol and now he wants Asus ROG strix 3070 ti card. I know it's strange, but seems like unlike other 3070 ti cards, this one has three 8 pin connectors. In specifications Asus says that recommended PSU is 750 watts. My question is, will our power supply still enough for this card? The other components of his build will be 4 fans from case, artcic freezer duo 34 esports cooler, i7 12700, 32GB RAM (2 sticks), 970 Samsung evo SSD of 1tb, ASUS TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS D4 motherboard. Shall we buy this card or it's a risk?

It should be enough, but you never know if those transient spikes could trip the PSU's OCP feature, which would turn off the PSU.

I read a lot of people having issues with the exact recommended PSU capacity, and changing to higher capacity PSU solved the issue, Linus suggested to go a step above for RTX 30 series cards.

Now, since he already has the PSU, why no try to get RX 6800 XT? They are about the same price and perform better than 3070 Ti, also no known transient spikes for RX 6000 cards.

Not an expert, just bored at work. Please quote me or mention me if you would like me to see your reply. **may edit my posts a few times after posting**
