Can my PSU take the system? (Sorry for this thread AGAIN)

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hello,


Yes it is one of those, Can my crappy PSU take my system threads >.<<br />

I5 2500k (OC 4.2)

8GB DD3 Ram

GA-Z77-D3H (rev. 1.1) http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4327#ov

Avertv HD DVR High Definition Avermedia

Xonar DG

Fatal1ty 550W http://ocz.com/consumer/psu/fatality-550w-power-supply

1x 3TB WD Green HDD

1x SSD 128GB

1x BluRay Burner



Now my question is, could this PSU take a 770 or a 7970 normal or the OC version. And how is all this calculated for the future so i don't have to bother people with the same question again >.

I would say so, its handled my 6300 (Much more power hungry ) at 5.35 (1.78v) and my 7950 @ 1.3v for benching, so it will do we;.

I know I have a ZT, but their very similar

PSU will do fine with a 2500k and 770 or 7970

There should be no problems. Newegg has a power supply calculator I used when I was new to building.

I agree, but it tends to overestimate IIRC, so there shouldn't be a problem. It's always better to get a little bigger than you need anyway.

If you know of a better one, let me know so that I can point newer builders to it.

Well, I don't really recommend the use of calculators because it's easy to get very inaccurate calculations out of them. However, if you run into someone who absolutely insists on using one, then I guess I can recommend our very own:
