  • All will work, you just need to stay above 650w. Your estimated power usages for that Graphic Card (3060), Processor (5800X)and Motherboard (B550M) will be around 389W at idle and 500 to 575w at Peak output without overclocking. You want to retain 10% to 15% overhead in the power supply that is unused, to help better survive power flux in your home, or office. Yes that even includes those that use UPS systems.

  • @bnalen I agree with EMi_Comps. Having that overhead puts you in a position to make upgrades and any power fluctuations within your home. A 750 would be enough in my opinion.

  • Definitely consider future proofing your PC builds power supply @bnalen can thank all us in this thread later when you don't have to pay another 100 to 300 dollars more for a replacement PSU on top of what ever fancy upgrade you may want to do in the future.


    Also I hope you have planned accordingly for that 5800x CPU they run hot... >.>
