600W enough?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!

Like the title says...
I would like to know if the following psu is enough for the following build.

PSU: Scythe Stronger SPSN-060P 600W 80PLUS

MOBO: Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
CPU: AMD FX X8 8350
GPU: GAINWARD GTX570 GS GLH
RAM: G-Skill RipjawsX 1866MHz 2×4GB
CPU Cooler: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer A30
Case: Zalman Z11 Plus (4-5 Fans)
SSD: 120GB SAMSUNG 840 Evo Basic, 60GB Intel 330
HDD: 500GB WD Blue, 1TB WD My Book (External)
Optical Drive: LG DVDRW 24x

And what about if I would get GTX 770 GPU or 2×GPU

Thanks! (^o^)/

Single GPU then a 600 watt psu will power anything. For sli/crossfire (2x gpu) a 750 watt is the best idea

Dont get a Scythe PSU they have a lineup of really bad units to average at best

Scythe got units made Golden Tiger which is about the worst OEM in the world

Pretty much this. All the "you need 2 kilowatt psu for that rig minimum!" talks are always terrible overreacting. My rig that has a pretty powerful i5 quadcore, 32GB ram, GTX670 as main GPU, GTX570 as secondary (physx) gpu, and a GTX470 as a dedicated gpu for driving my 5th and 6th screens. I also have a SSD and two hard disks, and 16 case fans, and while running 3dmark, whole rig uses at the highest peak 302W of power (measured with an external power meter) . rolleyes.gif on regular games with vsync on, i get around 250W of usage, and less than 100W on desktop. smile.gif I haven't tested loading all the gpus at once, but with at least one under full load the power usage rarely goes over 300W
