So I'm planning to get a rtx 3060 ti but I don't know if my psu is good enough for that kind of gpu, My powersupply is "MPX-6001-ACABW" Here's a photo of it

600 watts from a good PSU should be enough.

...but that model number comes back as a Masterwatt Lite.

...and if it's the same Masterwatt Lite that is on this list...


it isn't a good PSU...and I wouldn't use it just due to that,

Can't really future proof a PSU.

Most 'good' PSUs are going to start around $80 and go up to $200 depending on power output.

Largest GPUs today are pulling 350W with spikes up to 500W. So recommendation for those is 850W and up.

3060Ti is a 200W card, 650W would be a reasonable selection.

Fully modular and gold rated power supplies cut most of the bad ones out, depends where you are shopping what is available.

Top marks:
SuperFlower Leadex Gold III 650W / 750W
Some Seasonic Focus Gold rated units, but only the larger sizes are recommend for the 30 series.

Still pretty good:
Corsair RMx 650W (2019, or 2021 versions)
Corsair RM 650W / 750W
EVGA G5 series

Market is a little messed up for power supplies at the moment, demand is still higher than supply, so prices change rapidly.

Its a good psu but its based on the seasonic focus platform which has issue with power spikes on rtx gpu's.

The onboard protections can shut the psu down when this happens.

Its kind of a false positive and it won't happen with a 3060ti but it can happen with the 3070/3080.

So yes it's a good psu and yes it'll work fine with a 3060ti.

You said your budget is €120 though and that psu is clearly way more than that.

The superflower leadex 3 are as good if not better, have no issues with shutting down and are cheaper.

Either of them make more sense.
