So basicly i wanna upgrade my GPU and get the 5700 XT Red Devil but don't know if my PSU can handle it...

My PC:
Ryzen 5 2600X
Gigabyte B450M-DS3H
Sapphire RX 480 4GB Nitro+
16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000Mhz
120GB Kingston HyperX Fury
1 TB Western Digital Blue
PSU:
Cooler Master B-600 V2

If it's not enough i was looking for something like the BitFenix Whisper 650w, Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 650w or maybe Corsair RM650x.

The minimum PSU for that 5700XT is 700w.

Going to have to think 800w PSU.
Seasonic FOCUS Plus 850W is one to consider. Or something of this quality and wattage.

Power wise, it's more than enough. I don't know if that unit you have is a good one though. My initial thoughts are that it's not a good unit, but you should still be able to run it.

Do you think I went to high on the wattage there? Maybe 850w is a little too much. Dang card is 375w lol.

That one I suggested is around 160 bucks. That's about what I paid for mine like 10 years ago, but that one is titanium series. They have a gold series for less. Depends on the efficiency impure2k9 is looking for. I for one wouldn't do 650w on anything less than platinum.

I seen that. But your using 460w on that PSU, gonna run hotter than a higher wattage PSU. But yea I suppose a 650w could run it....

PSU recommendations from hardware makers typically assume a worst-case scenario (a low-quality PSU, high power usage elsewhere), and go high on the wattage recommendation to be safe. Even among 5700 XT board partner cards, you can find anything from 550 to 700w listed. Thing is, they don't know what's in the rest of your system, or whether you're OC'ing (which drives up power usage dramatically).

I'm not familiar with that particular Cooler Master PSU, but if you're at stock clocks elsewhere, I'd say you should be okay. An online PSU calculator recommends roughly 509w for that setup with a 5700 XT, which is roughly the same as what will be recommended for my system after the 5700 XT arrives next week (it's the Gigabyte 3-fan model, which recommends 600W for what it's worth). I'll be running it on a several year old Seasonic S12II 620w.

If you're concerned with having ~15% above recommended and you've got the cash, there's certainly no harm in getting something better. I've had great experiences with Seasonic, decent with Corsair, and exceptionally poor with Thermaltake.

It's straight up a waste of money to spend over US$100 to get just 50 watts of extra power. That's hardly an upgrade. Make it worthwhile by aiming for 700W or 800W and give yourself a comfortable margin to work with.

I can recommend you
GIGABYTE GP-G750H

It's super great PSU with really good components inside. you can check big article about him here (with google translate) https://ru.gecid.com/power/gigabyte_gp-g750h/?s=all

I used it with OC'd 1080 ti (330-340W in full load), now im using it with 2070 Super Oc'd (250-260 w full load). It's completely silent and have really good japanese components inside

If it's not enough i was looking for something like the BitFenix Whisper 650w, Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 650w or maybe Corsair RM650x.
thats a budget PSU (cheap caps!)
and it only has one 6/8 pin pci-e cable? - i would avoid adapters w/that unit.

those you listed are all CWT and not bad, better than what you have. but as others have suggested, look for better, if the budget allows.

650 watts is plenty of any mid range rig as listed. in my personal testing, gaming is about ~50-60% of the max load of the components. though its not about you getting moar power but a better quality unit also.

Out of those listed get the BItfenix Whisper 650W. It is a great unit as far as I saw and was considering the 550W version for myself.

And yes, go for a solid, well known brand like Seasonic, EVGA or Corsair, all of which I can vouch for from the past 10 years or so of reliability, longevity, and high-quality performance....

@impure2k9 you honestly don't need more than 500W for your current setup and unless you're planning on getting some super high-power setup soon, you should really find any decent PSU within 500W-600W. Try to find any model from Seasonic (Focus 550) or Corsair RM550 and it should be more than enough for your whole system (including new card)

Cooler Master also has the V550 which should be good as well. It is a much better unit than what you have now.

seasonic focus+ hands down. those G2s run in second - G3s really but their fans are louder. however, the G2s are larger if space is an issue.

on second thought, i believe, rather heard on several forums, EVGA's customer service in the EU sorta blows chunks.

Just out of curiosity since I don't see these 2 suggested anywhere.

Be Quiet! or FSP 'BQ has FSP inside generally' is not a thing/available in the US or just not really known?

Where I live those 2 are fairly reputable and often suggested for both budget and more expensive builds since they offer a wide range of PSUs.

I see,I'm not exactly sure how the warranty works here but after checking the shop where I usually buy my PC parts,they do not offer more than 5 years on any PSU even if its a high end Seasonic.
My current Cooler Master has 5 years too,similar priced/range Seasonics also have 3-5.

800w psu for a 5700xt.... lolol.

It's like the blind leading the blind here..

A quality 650w unit is plenty for that card and your cpu overclocked using ambient means. This wattage allows for headroom and quiet operations. Dont believe the hype about more wattage.

Seasonic Focus+ 650W 118€
This would be my choice

I for one wouldn't do 650w on anything less than platinum.
do tell what the efficiency rating has to do with the wattage chosen, please....

600 watts is fine as long as it's a quality PSU.

The card uses around 260 watts average gaming:



and even Peak Gaming wattage is around 265 watts.

I was about to say the same as EarthDog. People saying you need an 800w PSU for a single GPU system ... LOOOOOOOOL /insert GIF here.

650w is pretty much enough for ANY single card system on a main stream platform without crazy overclocks. It’s not as if he’s running a 2080 Ti and a 9980XE...

I would lean towards something other than the units you originally posted, OP. I’ve always been a fan of the EVGA units, but their fan profile annoys the hell out of me. “Silent mode” is silent, until the fan ramps to 100% every 10 minutes or so as it starts to panic about overheating, and then settles back to 0% once cool again.
