URGENT! Need to know about power supply.


Nov 26, 2015
So I have to have all of my parts bought soon, and it's come down to the power supply. I know that the power supply I have is good, but it is only 650w, and it might not be enough for my pc. I plan on using my pc for long hardcore gaming sessions, so I need to know if i would want to upgrade, and what to upgrade to. I don't want low wattage to ruin my experience or any of my parts/itself.

It's plenty.

Even with all your hardware overclocked that is a fantastic PSU and will provide all the reliable power you need. The GTX 970 is a very efficient card, and you won't be drawing anywhere close to your max wattage with a single 970.

Happy gaming. ;)
