PSU Sufficiency

Just a quick question:

Will the PSU in my build be sufficient for the other components in there?

  1. Yes, no problem. The XFX 550 is a good Seasonic unit and will work fine.
  2. Yup. You should have no problems at all.
  3. The PSU itself is of a good quality, but is 550w enough to power the system?

    Yep. 500W is what is recommended and even that is taking into account "bad" PSU's.
  5. The XFX 550 watt power supply is more than sufficient for a gaming rig with one Radeon HD 7870 video card. AMD recommends a 600 watt power supply for a system with two 7870's in CrossFireX mode:

    The XFX power supply is very good psu. Competent technical reviews published by sites that have the proper equipment and personnel to conduct rigorous testing and in-depth component analysis have been favorable:
