Power supply advice GTX 770

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all

As you can see from my rig builder i have recently upgraded my Cpu, motherboard and Gpu. Im now running a 4770K at stock, and a GTX 770 Windforce. Im powering all this with a 650watt Corsair PSU.

Im getting a bit of conflicting advice on whether i should upgraded my PSU as 650 watt isnt going to be enough. I have had good advice on here i9n the past and just wondered what you think

Thanks

650W is way more than enough, assuming the PSU isn't garbage. Which model do you have and how old is it?

Even a 500W psu can run a system with a 770.
