so I want to build myself a new pc and have already bought the case and psu but now i am wondering if 400 watts are enough if I might upgrade my gpu.
the components for the new pc are:

  • be quiet silent base 601
  • be quiet pure power 11, 400W 80+ Gold
  • i5 9600k
  • MSI Z390-A pro
  • 16gb G.Skill RipJaws V
  • be quiet Dark rock 4
  • 1tb Samsung 860 evo
  • maybe also a m.2 ssd
I am currently running a MSI gtx 970 and still want to use it for a while. There for the be quiet pure power 11, 400 watt should be good enough. But if I want to upgrade my gpu sometime I dont know if it will be able to keep up.
Should I just get a psu with more watts?

thanks for the help and please excuse if my english isn't the best ;)
