Question Wattage Recommendation (750? 1000?)

Oct 31, 2019
Okay, guys, this is my first post, and my first PC rebuild since Windows 2000.... yeah, I'm old and have forgotten most of this stuff!

My question is - I just bought an Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 for my PC.
Yes, it's old, but it's the top rated one for my MoBo. Also the one Nvidia recommended to me.
Trying to find out what size PSU I need to go with everything.
Not sure what size I need to have. I THINK my current size is a 450w, but I haven't taken the case off to look.

Specs -

Mobo - MSI 760gma-p34 fx
CPU - AMD FX 6300 six-core Vishera
RAM - 16 GB (2x Crucial 8GB Single DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800) Unbuffered UDIMM Memory)
Windows 10
One Internal HD and One DVD RW drive

Caveats - I don't and WILL NOT overclock anything. I need it to work for my job for the next several years.
Probably going to add a 1GB internal SSD and move Windows and games to it and keep the 1TB for storage, as well.


Personally I'd recommend the 750 or if you want a little more power the 850 watt version of this.
While that would work there's really no need to spend that kind of money on a PSU.
