Recently decided to buy the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING X TRIO 8GB Video Card but I see that it's recommended that I have at least 650W when I currently have the Seasonic G-550 550W 80+ Gold Semi Modular Power Supply. Am I in need of upgrading to a bigger PSU for the addition of the card? I hear things like the 30 series spikes in power so I'm unsure.
Not sure if any of this is needed but I'll provide it in case -
