    500W is more than enough. 450W is plenty. Your system is only going to use maybe 375W at full load. I have a Pentium G3258 overclocked to 4.7 Ghz with a GTX 1060 6GB in one of my PCs. Uses about 385W at load. Its powered by this little unit. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438130&ignorebbr=1

    Quiet and stable and only cost me $10 after rebate. $12 after rebate is still a bargain.
  3. Thanks guys, I think ill go with the PSU jeffredo referred to :)
