Is my 600W PSU enough?

 Share

Okay I am not the best person to know if my PSU has enough wattage to run my setup....

 

PSU: Corsair CX600

 

CPU: Core i3 4150 (stock speeds)

GPU:  MSI GeForce GTX 760 OC (black edition, not TwinForce)

Storage: 2x120GB Kingston SSD (RAID-0 if anyone cares) and a 1TB WD Black 7200RPM

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9 LP 2x4GB

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 Socket 1150

 

Is my PSU enough to run my system at full load? I am going to do some video editing on it and streaming as well.

Yes, I know. My CPU will be a bottleneck for those tasks but I don't stream at 1080p or make videos in 1080p.  I use 1080p but scaling down to 720p.

An i3 and 760 might consume 200W if you tried.

Wow....  I thought it was going to be much higher...

Well, I do the LinusTechTips way.  Go overkill or go home :D
