Is the PSU enough for a RTX 3080 when the graphics card market becomes normal again?
750w is plenty.

I have no problem overprovisioning a PSU a bit. Say by 20%.
It will allow for a stronger future graphics card upgrade.
It will run cooler, quieter, and more efficiently in the middle third of it's range.
A PSU will only use the wattage demanded of it, regardless of it's max capability.


EVGA quality varies, I think your pick is OK:

I like the seasonic units, here is a similar GX750 with the same 10 year warranty for less:

The 850w unit is the same $149 and I think I would prefer that unit.

hypothetically could it run 2?
