Solved How many watts does this build need? Tags: Gaming Power Supplies Desktops PC gaming Build Components Macintosh Last response: March 15, 2014 3:25 AM in Components Share figarot12 March 15, 2014 3:09:31 AM Hello everyone, I'm planning to build a pc because I want to replace my mac laptop with a windows desktop for gaming and school purposes because my mac is getting problems with the battery and I can't game on it. When I searched for the required amount of Watts using Newegg's calculator it came up with a required PSU Wattage of around 900 W, but Sapphire recommends a PSU of around 500 W for the card. I'm not planning to crossfire/overclock the build. So how many Watts does this build need and are there any things that I need to change for the build?
