But good news, I have finally built a much-needed new computer to replace my old which had a GeForce 1070 Ti Duke and an Intel Core i7-6700K.

    I have no idea about this matter at all. Does the speaker (Logitech Z313) also draw energy from the pc PSU or from the wall? Sorry about this question. I just need some straightforward answers since I can't really find the specs of the speaker.
