    Hi gurus,

    Just after what wattage I should get for my build , details in my signature but would like some head room for an upgrade I am planning in the near future.

    Looking at scoping up a 4th gen i7, maybe a 4790k, anyway something.

    Would a 650w be enough?

    the below link is great to answer such a question.
    https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator

    it allows you to specify existing or potential parts and set an overclock if you intend to do that.

    its hard to beat the EVGA G2 power supplies for quality, price and 10 year warranty. However the 650W model is hard to find in the Australian retail market. and often the small price difference means a 750w version is better anyhow even though it is overkill.

    I just installed a toughpower Grand RGB 750W Gold Full Modular into an older system that had extreme coil whine on any component connected to it. My new 1080ti Gpu would scream on 3d applications.

    The reviews were not wrong, Absolute silence now, and gained 300mhz on my overclock.

    I use a G2 750W in my daily it is very hard to beat value wise if your case can handle the length.

    For the combo you have a 450w would be fine too (no problems previously running similar power draws).

    It is a good idea to check the efficiency curves and land your gaming load in the sweet spot.
