Hi all,
I recently got a new psu ( be quiet! S9-500w) and I’m wondering if it’ll be able to power my gtx 1080, ryzen 5 2600x and motherboard?
Thanks in advance

A 550W PSU from a respectable brand will be more than adequate for a GTX 1080.

PSU wattage recommendations tend to account for no-brand garbage.

A 1080 under heavy gaming load would use less than 200W - or maybe a bit more if it's a factory OCed model. The rest of the system isn't going to be pulling 250 Watts.

I do note in another topic you said it was 550W rather than 500W. So make sure you're confident with what's in your system before pressing ahead :)
