Hello everyone,

I have a 550w power supply and my current system is:

-Intel Core i5 2400
-Asus ENGTX 560 TI
-8gb Ram
-A mediocre optical disc drive
-Western Digital WD10EZRX 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 6 HDD

550w power supply is enough for my current system but I want to replace my motherboard with an ASUS Sabertooth z77 motherboard. My question is when I change my motherboard to sabertooth will my power supply be enough to run the system?

Thank you in advance.

What brand is the PSU?

Yes. A decent 550W can even run SLI 660 Tis.

The power supply was included with my gigabyte chassis so it should be gigabyte too.

Actually I don't intend to use multiple gpu atm. I just want to upgrade my motherboard to sabertooth and since sabertooth is much better than my current mobo I am worried that my psu won't be enough.

It's not the best PSU, but you can be sure that you can run a single graphics card on it with no issues.
