Hey

I bought a new 3060Ti to replace my 1060 and i have a Seasonic S12II 520W bronze PSU.
Am I gonna have any problems or should it be fine? Estimated wattage according to pcpartpicker is ~380 so 520W should still have some headroom.
I'm slightly worried because the GPU box has a 600W requirement on it.

My setup with new GPU: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/rockyG/saved/f6MBjX

Thanks in advance

well when you are picking the wattage you have to consider tdp for cpu, hdd and all other stuff in case + gpu, and that should equal a amount, if that amount is less than the power supply +- 20% youre good to go.

My choice would be a new PSU - 650watts to be bulletproof go for 750w.

BUT

my card rtx 2060 is rated at 160Watt usage power.but they recommend 500w supply, by HWinfo i see that it draws around 200watts if i am correct, therefore there the 600w psu requierment is a bs. Also i have oced cpu and gpu so i draw more.

https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator you can type your HW here and it will calculate estimated wattage draw from psu.
