yes, it will hurt your card in longrun alot since you haven't even accounted for CPU. Get a better power source, you seem rich cause 2070 so
Yes, your power supply doesn't only give power to the GPU you know
i think you may have problems when it runs at 100% power
better to be safe than sorry
No u don't have that's a fuckin myth.if your system overall uses 400-450 watt u're good but u have to have a good apu on that watt not a cheap one
No, 500 is enough
If its a cheap one it might not
Of course the card doesn't draw 500w duh. Nvidia recommends a minimum 500w psu with a typical pc with that gpu. The typical is mentioned there somewhere, 120 TDP cpu iirc, so any not overclocked modern intel i5-i7.
If the system would be power starved (with a decent enough quality, but too small wattage psu), the pc would just instantly crash when entering high load. This will not cause hardware failure, but data loss and system file corruption might occur.
always overcompensate with your PSU. better safe then sorry with an expensive and delicate gaming instrument
It will work but in the same time you wont be able to uilize the GPU so it would mean that you basically bought a gtx 1060 since a lot of the power will go to the motherboard/CPU and ofc you are never using 500/500 of the power. => if you dont intend to increase the power (and probably need a cooling system for the entire pc) sell the card and buy 1060/1060ti and some ice cream cuz you would have plenty of extra cash cuz if im not mistaken all the newer (even gtx 1070/1080) ones require 500-500W which results in total need of around 850 from the entire pc.
The draw from the graphics card is 185w for founders edition and 175w for a regular card.
If you've got a 500w power supply that leaves 315w or 325w respectively, as long as the rest of your components and peripherals don't draw more than that, then it will be fine.
Your cpu will be the next highest draw of power, depending on what it is it could be anything from 65w to 140w+ ... I think the average for mine (8700k) is about 100w... though mine probably draws a little more since it's overclocked.
I'd account about 10w for each ram module, 4w for each ssd , 8w for each hdd, a couple for each fan.
The recommendation of 550w will be based on the average draw of computers + the card and they have probably added extra wattage as room for error but it is not device specific, it is just a recommendation.
Let's say your cpu draws 200w (which is on the high end of the scale)
Graphics card draws 185w,
I'll assume you have 16gb, maximum of 4 modules so we'll add 40w,
1 hdd so add 8w and 2 ssd's, so another 8w added,
Probably no more than 5 fans including cpu fan so add 10w....
That's around 450w so you've got 50w spare for peripherals and any other devices..... this is all on the assumption that they are hitting maximum power draw at the same time as well.. which will likely not happen very often....
I think you will be fine dude :D
if you didn't overclock anything then it should be enough. However make sure your psu is of good quality, some say they're 500w when in reality they don't give even 200w.
It's not that bad , but it can make your power supply block outdate faster
It should be normally sufficient, the nVidia 550W recommendation includes theorethical power draw of entire PC. Anyway, what is your PSU model?
I think you will be fine, though having said that, the PSU is probably one of the last components in a PC build that you should save on quality wise.
itll probably be okay just dont vacuum and use hair dryer at same time
