Hallo everyone, i need info on power consumption please! I want to know if my ups will cope with my system.

Im considering to buy a:
Corsair 650watt psu.

CPU: iNTEL CORE I5 4670
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 660
RAM: Corsair 8 gig 1600mhz
HDD: 1 500GIG SATA
1 2TB SATA

DVD ROM: 1 Dvd/cd rw rom

Your system will not use anything close to 600w. 350w is probably the most it will use under load.

Having had a bit of experience with ups's, i would say you need 350w to 450w. frankly, i wouldnt skimp on it, so try getting one that is slightly larger than you need.

Yes, buy your system will not suck anything like that, IT will use 350w max under full load.

Those calculators are designed to give TONS of overhead for people buying poor quality PSUs.

oky, before i posted here i did research on my components wattage
intel corei5 4670 =84watts
nvidia geforce gtx660 =140watts
i think that is the only two components sucking much power, i dont know what the motherboard wattage is

That is all the power the system will use. The HDD will use like 15w Thats all.

As stated, your system will not use much power at all.

Yes I am into gaming. Your PSU will be plenty. WAY more than enough. I have used a 500w PSU with a way more power hungry gpu than your gtx660.

It will not play games at max but should run most games at high settings at 1080p.

OKY, Now what is the difference in performance in gtx650ti boost, gtx660 and gtx 660ti?

The 660ti is the best and will be slightly better than the 660. The 650ti boost is worse than the 660.

really? i want a better gpu, if i get a cheaper motherboard and cheaper cpu, with a better gtx gpu, will it perform better in games than my current plan?

Yes it will perform alot better in games. Gaming is 80% gpu and only 20% CPU. You always want a very good gpu. The CPU can be lowered to have a better gpu.

Get the i5 4430 and a b85 motherboard. Use the saved money to get a gtx 760 or hd7950

Go for the 650. Will save you a bit and an 800 is just a waste for this rig

Both of those are NO good at all. Stay away from them. Unless it is an Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PC Power and Cooling. Stay away from it.

Oky so i have narrowed it down to two psu's CORSAIR Gamingseries gs600 and Corsair Gaming Series GS800
My ups is a 600watt, will it be fine with this build even if i take the 800watt psu? Im still considering a Corsair CX 750. Its a bit Cheaper, but want to know about the ups. The reason why i have a ups on my system is we have many power dips in our area the last 5 months, When the power dip certain items in the house turns off and suddenly on again, example my fish tanks equipment turns off for 1sec and suddenly back on, some of our lights just dimms and brighten up after seonds, now i know that is not good for a computer!!

I would get the gs600. Your build has no need for more than 500w so an 800w PSU would be pointless. Your system will not ever use 600w or even anything close to it, so you will be perfectly fine with your current UPS.
