[SOLVED] Is my PSU too weak?

Feb 16, 2019
Hey guys,

I have been having issues where my PC just restarts. I think my PSU might be too weak.

Here are my specs:
i7 8700k 3.70GHZ 12MB
32GB of RAM
nvidia GTX 2080
ASUS TUF Z370 PLUS GAMING ATX w/ RGB, USB 3.1, 3 PCIe x16, 3 PCIe x1, 6 SATA3, 2 M.2
and I'm using a 600W PSU.

Do I need to buy a 850?

Thanks for your help
the parts you have will barely push 450w pr about 500 with an oc'd cpu.
so as long as its a decent 80+bronze or better unit then you dont need to upgrade it.

if however you add a couple of HDD's then bumping to a 650w unit minimum would be a good move.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-founders-edition,5809-10.html you can see toms did the testing and the gpu maxed out at 340w
add 95w for your cpu, if overclocked 140w.. 1w for the ssd another 20w for the motherboard chipset and ram.
