[SOLVED] Can you run a 5700 XT on a 550 Watt PSU

Do you mean to say i should use some Good PSU??
Like a Bronze+ Certified PSU??
While certification is a good indicator, along with recognizable brands
The best way is to look at the psu tier list (just google psu tier list)
anything above a B should be good and not cause any issues, with higher tiers more for, more efficiency, less noise, sizes maybe, and if youre looking at a higher end system maybe getting a higher tier+higher wattage psu is a good idea. or all of the above.
