The PSU I have chosen for my build is a Corsair Builder Series CX500w ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit and these are the rest of my components: GPU CPU RAM
I am worried because the Gigabyte website says the power consumption is 400W, but on amazon the CPU power consumption is 43W but on a benchmark test I read for it, it said the peak power consumption was 120w?
I know the GPU power consumption can be taken with a pinch of salt because I am going with a decent PSU not a terrible £20 one.
This is my first build so and I don't want to get anything wrong in the part choosing stage.
Thanks in advance, hopgop.
Yeah I know, it's if in the future I need to overclock my CPU (I probably will in like 2 years) and I can get a better PSU rather than buying a whole new CPU and PSU. I purely need to know if this is a high enough wattage.
