Hey community,

I need your help. I am thinking about exchanging my GTX 1070 through an RTX 3070.

My currrent setup:

Ryzen 7 3700x
BeQuiet Dark Rock 4
BeQuiet Pure Power 11 500w CM
Inno3D iChill x3 GTX 1070
Samsung Evo Plus 500GB
Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD 1TB
MSI x570 Gaming Edge Wifi
BeQuiet Silent Base 601

What do you think, should I swap my current PSU with an 600/650W PSU?

you’ll pull around 400-450 watts max. Your power supply should be able to handle it if needed. A higher quality 650w should be in your upgrade plans down the line.

Welcome to the forums!

Not for a 3070 really. It certainly falls below recommendations. Especially considering if you have had the PSU some time.
A good quality 650W will be perfectly fine.
