I've found a lot of threads about PSU for Vega 56. But I dont't really want to change my current PSU. So my question is, will my current Corsair RM550X be able to handle the Sapphire RX Vega Nitro+? I'm using a R7 1700 + Antec Mercury AIO 240mm, 24GB DDR4 2666MHz with 4 case 120mm fans.
 
The RM550x doesn't have enough PCIe power connectors as the RX Vega 56 Nitro+ requires 3x 8-pin connectors and as listed on Sapphire's website consumes <750W. You could probably get by if you had 650W RMx, but I would recommend at least a 750W upper-tier power supply as suggested on Sapphire's spec listing.
