Last year, I built a new PC for the first time and it was alot of fun, but as you probably all know, the prices of everything were sky high. I ended up with a AMD 5800X, ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI), and an Asus Strix 3070 TI, but I really wanted a 3090 TI.
Fast forward to today. Looks like RTX 40 series are out, but it looks like a total rebuild with everything. My question is this. If I wanted to buy a newly reduced 3090 TI, and maybe upgrade to a 5950X, what power supply would you recommend? 1000W or 1200w? Also, is my motherboard ok for this?
I feel like this would be a good setup if my motherboard could handle it. If not, I'll just wait a few years and just upgrade everything once all the bugs are worked out.
Greetings. What wattage of supply do you have currently?
Hi there, I have a 750 gold. But I wasn't sure that would be enough,
Hi there, just wanted to try again on this question. my current setup is 750 watts for a 3070 TI Strix and 5800x. I plan on upgrading at least the GPU to a 3090 TI founders edition, and I have read that 1000 W power supply is prob ok. Any feedback or suggestions? I may upgrade to a 5950x as well in the next few months.
Any currently sold 1000W supply should do just fine for those upgrades. You shouldn't run into any issues.
thank you very much! I appreciate it!
