Hi, first time posting here, I'm currently in the process of buying the parts for my new rig, I can't find much info about how many watts my mb needs and I'm worried my psu won't have enough power to give it.

Here's the parts:

Motherboard - ASRock B250M-HDV

GPU - Geforce GTX 690

CPU - i5-7500

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LED 16gb (2x8gb), DDR4 2400mhz

HDD - Western Digital WD10EURX 1TB, 64MB Cache

PSU - Cooler Master MWE 600w, 80+ Bronze


Thanks!
 
gpu ~ 300 W
CPU ~ 65 W
rest ~ 50 W
415 + 20% headroom, 550+ good quality is recommended. However, MWE is not good quality unit. If you have it already, you may use it but pls plan to upgrade in the near future.

Ah, thank you, I am planning on upgrading it.
edit: No, I haven't bought it yet, I think I'll buy one from evga

As I'm sure it's leading up to it, just remember a good brand does not mean it's good quality.
EVGA make plenty of poor units.

The CM MWE 600W isn't too bad at that wattage, the lower wattage units aren't so good. But the higher wattage are decent enough budget ones (age permitting!). I'd still always opt for higher quality, but it's not awful from my understanding, but there are plenty better.
