Hello tomshardware community,

I've been wondering about my PSU for this future build of mine.
I am planning to use my current PSU a Cooler Master G650m (650W, bronze one).

The build is going to be comprised of these parts:

MB - Aorus Z390 ultra
CPU - i5-9600k
GPU EVGA rtx 2080ti ftw 3 (11G-P4-2487-KR)
Cooler Noctua Nh-u12s
SSD - Samsung 960 evo 1tb
RAM - 32gb (2x16) Gskill 3200Mhz (F4-3200C15D-32GTZR).
Case - be quiet! Silent base 601 (2 fans preinstalled) + I am going to put one noctua NF-A14PWM from my current set up.

The GPU says it needs a minimum of 650W but realisticly am I going to get there?

P.S. I will be gaming on a rather bad monitor at first (1680x1050). Afterwards planning on a 1440p 144Hz.

What are your thoughs?
Thanks in advance

A min of a 750W PSU is needed, don't even think about using that POS PSU you have now in your wildest dreams.

You will be bottlenecking the heck out of the GPU until you get that 1440P monitor.

Massive bottleneck.

Get a good high quality 750W PSU or you will regret it.

EVGA G2

You need to get rid of the POS crap PSU.
Since the i5-9600k and the PSU are not a great idea I will have to change them.

So, if I modify the build with a i7-9700kf and a 2080 super I will still need a decent 750W PSU as you stated above.
Could you give me some suggestions?

Yes, you still need to get rid of the PSU no matter what.

It's a total POS.
Ye I got the idea that the PSU has to go.

Which brand and series should I look for.
I see that you are using a Seasonic Prime Titanium.
What certificate should the PCU have, titanium or platinum will do?
