8. XFX pro core edition 550 watts (1st question about this)
XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12...

Will the power supply be enough with the liquid cooler and case fans on top of the 8350 and 7950? The wattage calculators online all say yes, but reading reviews about the cpu and gpu, I see on some charts that they both can consume a combined 500 watts, just those 2!


I'm really on a budget as I've saved for 9 months of working to build a pc that will last me.... well a long time. This is my first computer though I've wanted since 12 (now 27) so I'd like some feedback on what you think about how well and if the power supply can handle it

  1. Select your parts in pcpartpicker please

    Always buy 2x4gb ram and dont go with 1x8gb
    Case looks cheap


    Your psu is enough
    Your gpu and cpu dont consume 500w

    Cpu max 125w
    Gpu max under 200w
    ~ gpu and cpu at 100% load less then 325w
    In games the cpu is under 20% load so ye plenty power
