[Question] Is this PSU good enough for my build?


Hello members,

I am a first time builder and I need some help. I bought the Gigabyte PB500 500 watt 80+Bronze PSU. But is it good enough? These are my specs: Ryzen 3 1300x MSI B350 Tomahawk Mobo 16gb DDR4 RAM 2tb HDD 240gb SSD GGigabyte Aorus rx580 4gb.

Yes thats more than enough.

For comparison at 100% stress an overclocked Ryzen 1700 and GTX 1080 consume less than 400W.

It’s more than enough. You can run 3600x and b500 on that too… 80+ bronze sounds good too… check what it costs, MWE (cooler master) PSUs are cost effective to + Version 2 has variable fan speed and I guess it comes with flat cables… you never know what magic flat cables do.
