Solved Noob PSU Question Tags: Systems Memory Last response: June 16, 2014 2:34 AM in Systems Share Azuc June 16, 2014 2:19:50 AM The info below says it needs 600W that seems like a lot is it accurate? WINDFORCE 3X 450W Cooling system Powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 GPU Integrated with 2GB GDDR5 memory, 256-bit memory interface Features Dual-link DVI-I/ DVI-D / HDMI / DisplayPort BASE:1137MHz / BOOST:1189 MHz System power supply requirement: 600W More about : noob psu question Reply to Azuc Best solution i7Baby a b } Memory June 16, 2014 2:24:07 AM That's for the whole 'system' - the whole pc. Usually about 300W is allowed for everything but the graphics card. And there's some headroom built in to allow for 'aging'.
