Hi!
I just bought the palit RTX 3080 gamerock and it's coming tomorrow . This card required 850w power supply with 3x8 pin PCI-E cables, my question is does my cs750m power supply will be enough to run it with two 2x8pin cables instead of 3 ?
NOTE: I don't overclock.
 
Which PSU do you recommend?
Evga Or Corsair ether in Semi Modular Or Full Modular in 850W and in gold and yes they will cost abit but these are my two trusted brands and you can come back to the forums and check PSU forums and get some feedback on what PSU you picked and such!

Found this PSU that can handle 3080

EVGA 850 GQ, 80+ GOLD 850W, Semi Modular, EVGA ECO Mode, Power Supply 210-GQ-0850-V3

Wait a minute...
You acquired a 3080, don't have an adequate psu, and that's your cpu?

Please tell me you're not playing at 1080p too?
Expect to spend even more money than you originally intended if the answer is yes.

No, I'm playing on 4k. The rtx 3080 required 750w at max, didn't know that this card required 850w as I noticed that after they send the card to me

Phew! I'm glad to see that.

Internal component quality > wattage.
A good 650w would hold up better than a crap 850w.
There are many possible hardware configurations, so to cover the company's behind, they purposefully exaggerate the requirements... but wattage isn't everything, so that's only a part of the whole picture.

One of the things going on with RTX 30 is the sharp power spikes, and not the total power draw itself, that appear to be hard on even mediocre psus.
