Is PSU sufficient for new parts?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I know it's prob spamming on this forum, but I ran the awesome Phaedrus calculator, and the new parts I'm getting are taking me to 600W, when I have a 650W PSU (SeaSonic X-650 Gold).

The new parts I'm getting are (gonna replace sig rig below):

Asus Crosshair V Formula
Amd 1100T
Asus 580GTX RoG
Corsair H60
Corsair 600T White

So with the 580+CPU+PhysX I'm reaching 600W, plus I have the SSD (negligible), and a WD RE4 500GB, WD Caviar Green 2TB, and Bluray.

Isn't it cutting it a bit close to the 650W limit? I know the calculator factors in plenty of head-room, and on idle/gaming I shouldn't top more than 60-70% of the W rating, but I wanna make sure, I don't mind getting a 800W (or bigger) PSU (selling this rig to a friend and getting a new one anyway, so if I get a new PSU I'll just sell him the old PSU too..)

Thx guys

The Seasonic X-series are excellent PSUs. When its rated at 650W 80+Gold, it doesnt mean that it can only supply your PC with 650Watts, thats just the spot where its most effective. If need be, it could supply your PC with maybe 750-800 Watts. But it probably never will come to that.
Dont worry, your PSU will be absolutely fine.

You are more than fine specially on that PSU.

Have you considered an i7 2600k instead of an 1100T?

thx!

if i could build a system from only corsair products, i would. love that company, would kill to work there.. everything they touch turns to gold

but ranting aside, RoG is the best, plus the color-scheme will look amazing with the white 600T (i'm crazy in love with that case, my wife's beginning to worry...). I used to laugh at ppl who color-code their PCs, but now it just makes perfect sense to do it (as sad as that sounds), and I can't understand why I haven't done that before.

Anyway, thx to everyone, I see my fears were unfounded. I'll happily post some pics of the assembled new rig when it's finished if you guys are interested

thx

of course i did, but i don't think the price-premium is worth it for a similar Asus board and the i2600k over the crosshair v and the 1100t.
plus i make good use of those 6-cores at home
