hello computer experts of hltv, I seek your help again, Im about to get myself a new PC with: Ryzen 5 2600 16 GB DDR4 GTX 1660 SSD + HDD Wifi Card 433 mbit Will 450 Watt be enough?

Check with PCpartpicker and it will tell you exact wattage.

it said 397 Watt but a friend told me the same rig with 3600 and 1660 super would need 550 so Im confused

Get 550 so you can upgrade parts on the future with room for more wattage.
2020-05-25 15:08
550W PSU actually only has 450-500W on main lines, and you dont want to run PSU at more than 80% capacity, for stability and lifetime of the PSU. so if your system will draw 400W you will need at least a 550W psu. but this doesnt take into account any overclock or turbo boost or peaks in power use so you need at least 650W. and then you might as well buy an 800-850W psu so you can add a 2nd gpu or bigger gpu or cpu in the future without having to spend another 150 on a bigger PSU.

i bought a 850W psu in 2012, for 150 euro, it had 8 year warranty which runs out this year and it still works. in 2012, i had 2 gtx460s that used 225W each and a cpu that used 200W, my total power draw came to around 750W under load. right now most components use a bit less so you can go with a bit less. but intel and amd and nvidia are already increasing power draw again by making bigger chips without shrinking process node so i might need 850W again a couple years from now and because its a good psu it will probably last another 10 years. some computer parts you want to replace often, if they get a lot faster in a couple years time. like cpus in the past and currently gpus. some parts like psu and cpus for the past 10-ish years dont improve a lot so its better to just buy a good one that lasts a long time instead of buying cheap shit that breaks in a couple years

It takes the stats from the parts. How is it wrong?
2020-05-25 15:11
because first of all TDP doesnt equal maximum power draw and then also things like turbo boost and overclocks exist

That is why you give room and buy higher.
2020-05-25 15:14
yes so dont recomment this part picker because idiots will look at this and go "400W TDP on parts, lets get a 450W bronze rated PSU 4Head"

None, if you can't afford an intel CPU, you can't afford sustainable electricity

Good Point
2020-05-25 15:07
I'd take 550W just in case

Assuming you're going to want to overclok and keep the PSU if you upgrade, I'd say go for a solid 650 or 750W PSU. A bit overkill for now maybe but you won't have to upgrade it ever if you buy a good one. Also, keep in mind that your pc will only use as much power as it needs. A 750W supply won't draw 750W all the time ;)
2020-05-25 15:10
should be enough, but i'd go for at least 550, if not more, just for the sake of the machine being futureproof and upgradable without a hassle
2020-05-25 15:08
Which Company and which certificate?
2020-05-25 15:09
450W not even enough for ryzen without gpu lol 650W at least

Yeah, 1st and 2nd gen Ryzen is still a bit power-hungry, that headroom is a good practice Good to see you on these threads again bruv
2020-05-25 15:18
if these fkin idiots just used google or search function i wouldnt need to write the same thing every thread for fucking years on end
2020-05-25 15:21
The same build, use about 550W, I'm using 650W but think it's kinda too much
2020-05-25 15:11
450 is enough, don't listen to the other noobs But it isn't enough for if you upgrade. If you plan on upgrading in the future, get more Watt, if not then 450 should be enough for now. Highly recommended to get 600W at the least though
2020-05-25 15:14
450 is not enough for ryzen cpu and 1660 lol noob
2020-05-25 15:17
Try it out cause it is noob
2020-05-25 17:58
yes enjoy having your pc blow up after 3 years
2020-05-25 17:59
I have a better pc that what he stated, I'm just not an idiot who goes off of infromation from unknown sources. I'v build many PC's over the years so I actually know what I'm talking about unlike you. Link source that backs you up cause you are wrong you dumbass retard.
2020-05-25 18:11
ive been building pcs since like 07 kid lol i know what im talking about. big psus have better components than small ones so they last longer. on top of that a bigger psu will be able to power your pc at lower load % than what it is rated for so it will last longer. i have already had shit psus blow up on me in my life because im not 6 years old like you. take my advice, spend 150 euro on a gold or plat rated psu with 800W minimum and it will last you for decades, which is cheaper than buying a trash psu and blowing up your whole pc which costs you hundreds of euros or pounds. ive experienced it.
2020-05-25 18:15
Alright old ass pensioner, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's a good or it's the best option, but 450W is literally enough for a ryzen 2600 and the gpu which was stated, and no, it will not blow up if it's bronze or higher grade. Don't act like you're sick at PC builds when you don't know enough about it. You say you've been building PCs since 07, what as a hobby? I did it as a side job. Iv built many budget build or builds where for some reason the customer wanted certain, questionable, combinations. 450W with the other compenets would sustain for, most likely, 3 years give or take a few months. I stated that in the long run it's worth getting more, I also said I recommend 600W at the least. So read properly, understand the situation, and shut the fuck up you amature.

600 is where it's at
2020-05-25 18:21
No, i have exact same specs with 700W
2020-05-25 15:13
Rather buy more than less, price not differs so much
2020-05-25 15:14
more than enough.
2020-05-25 15:21
is enough, my 3600x and 1070 is max 412W
2020-05-25 18:16
If you care about saving on electricity and have money, get a 750W. PSU peek efficiency is at 50% load and your build should be around that spot. 450W will be enough though.

I have a somewhat similar setup to you just that I have a gpu that has around 100 more watts for tdp, 450 should be enough but maybe go 500 to be 100% sure
2020-05-25 22:39
Technically the 450 watt should be good but you always want to have a buffer of about 50-100 watts over what is necessary. You don't want the possibility of bottnecking your PC's wattage.
