Got a Red Devil 6800XT on the way, just wanted to see if I could use my current PSU with it.

X570 ASUS TUF gaming pro
Ryzen 5 3600@4.2
Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64@1715/1000
32G 8Gx4 @3600
Phanteks Fan Controller
Dark Sythe Fuma 2
7 120 fans
2 Monitors
Corsair CX750w non modular

I appreciate any help.

Same rough power output as your Vega64.

I would probably invest in a new power supply to protect the investment.
I'll be honest I'm hesitant to get a new PSU for the fear of receiving a faulty one and having a system ruined if my current one will do. That said you would still recommend an upgrade?

Corsair CX750w
the PowerColor and a few other RX 6800 XTs state they require 850w power supplies
but you may need to test and see for sure.
the AMD base edition and many others claim they only require 750w.

most of the RTX 3080 Ti cards state they only require 750w
but my TUF version requires 850w and my 750w be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 Platinum couldn't quite cut it.
switched to a 850w Super Flower Leadex III Gold and have had zero issue since.

the Corsair CX series isn't the best rated.
you may want to upgrade to something more reliable and move up to 850w while you're at it.

Alright then I'll get a new PSU then and go up to 850w.

Looks like I can get a Corsair RMX series 850w 80+ Gold. That good?
