hi,

Recently i've upgraded my graphics card from a 1050 ti to a Gigabyte RX 5600 XT GAMING OC 6G
Now what i was and still am concerned about is whether my PSU is sufficient enough for the RX 5600.
I've watched many videos and benchmarks finding out the power draw of the card but im still concerned.
Even more so since i recently updated the BIOS which increased the Power consumption ( in Radeon Software) from 110w to 145w~ while running Furmark.

What also confused me is how the people on youtube show a WAAAAY higher power consumption than what im getting and at this point im too afraid to benchmark that exact game and see the usage aswell (tomb raider on ultra 1080p shows a 345W power consumption)
Or in some other cases it goes around 270-300Watts of power

am i just being overly cautious or could there be issues if my power consumption goes over 160W?

My specs are:
Xeon e5-2689 @ 2.6ghz
16GB DDR3
Gigabyte RX 5600 XT GAMING OC 6G
Corsair TX550M GOLD
250GB SSD, 1TB sata 7.2k rpm


Thank you in advance

Hey thanks for the quick response!
