Hi everyone. My first time here.

I would like to ask if my 550w antec true power classic is enought for:
Sapphire Rx 5700 xt nitro+
Ryzen 5 3600 + stock cooler
Msi b450 tomahawk max
2x16 gb Aegis 3000 MHz
Samsung evo 850 500gb ssd
2x 120 case vents. I assume they drain almost nothing.


Here is the psu box: https://photos.app.goo.gl/XHnKhY6shvnHmJJBA
3 years old.

Before that, on the same psu unit I had:
ASRock z68 extreme3 gen3
I5 2500k + noctua d14
32gb hyper x 1866 cl10, 4x8
And r9 280
Ssd Samsung evo 850 500gb
Ssd plus sandisk 120gb
HDD Western digital 1tb
HDD Western digital 1tb
HDD hitachi 500gb

Thanks!

The True power classic is a good PSU. You'll have enough power for the setup you described. It has the two 6+2 pin power connections needed for the Sapphire Nitro+ card. If you have the 2 PCIe power cords you're good to go. If you intend to overclock and expand the system you may want to upgrade to a more powerful, high quality PSU in the near future.

550W is the minimum recommended for a 5700XT. And your PSU is a high quality PSU. So, unless it is abused, wore out, etc, it should be fine. OC'ing both CPU and GPU might max it out, but I personally would have no problem using it.

I recently bought a 5700xt and a 550w psu (seasonic focus gold) and then I read online somewhere that said it wasn’t enough, so I returned the psu and got a 650w version instead. 550w is probably safe but I would upgrade if I were you. If you can’t, then don’t worry about it.
