Is this PSU enough for FX 8350 + 7950 (Both OCed)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I just have a quick question. I'm going through the final stages in choosing my components for my very first build. It's going to be a gaming/video editing/rendering PC. I am going to be using the AMD FX 8350 and the Radeon 7950. I will most likely OC the 8350 to around 4.6 GHz on the Hyper 212 EVO (If I can) and I will also OC the 7950 around 1100 MHz, maybe 1200 MHz if it can. Will this 620w PSU be enough to power both of them? Or should I get something a bit beefier? I don't really want to spend more than $100 on a PSU.

(P.S. I will only ever run a single GPU setup. I will never run SLI/Crossfire. Too many problems I hear with that. So I'm not looking into spending a ton of money on a 800w+ PSU. Just something reliable and can get the job done thumb.gif)

Thanks in advance guys! I will leave a link below to the parts I have selected.

That power supply will have more than enough power for that set up.. U can even go less if u want and still have plenty of room to overclock.

I would kind of prefer a modular PSU, just to keep things nice and tidy. But wouldn't 550w be a little too low? I've seen benchmarks of 8350's reaching like 250w+ when OCed and under load. 7950's can get pretty high up there too.

Quesoblanco is right and 550w is more than enough for your rig, like the one meantioned.

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/11/06/amd-fx-8350-review/7 overclocked 8350 power consumption. Which is measured at the wall, so factor in efficiency..... and it only takes about 300? If my math is correct lol. Plus that is not just the CPU, that is including the rest of the system.
