I have an incoming used Zotac 1080Ti AMP next week as my new GPU, and I don't really have a budget to buy a higher watt PSU.

Will it work on my 500W PSU?

Specs:
Ryzen 5 2600
B450M DS3H
Zotac GTX 1080Ti
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3000mhz
120GB SSD
1TB HDD

I don't have a plan overclocking my system, will my PC be fine to work on stock on a 500w PSU?
PSU's make is an AeroCool Strike-X 500W Bronze Rated PSU.

Hi @Scott Baban

I wouldn't advise it. It's not a potato but nor is it a quality unit. Here is an older post on Tom's in regards to your PSU and one on the 600w neither of which speak highly of it. Reviews elsewhere all pretty much say the same thing. Your soon-to-be-new-for-you ZOTAC 1080Ti is an excellent card but recommends a (quality) 600w PSU. I've owned ZOTAC GPU's in the past and they are built tough.

Thanks, haven't really seen people used a 1080ti on a 500w psu. Will note your take on this. I have a 1060 running on this PSU for a year and a half, shouldve bought a higher PSU first. :/
