EVGA 600B Question

Would this PSU be able to handle an i3-6100 with a GTX 780? I already have it with the i3 and a 960 but I just want to ask because the 780 has a higher TDP, and the 600B is more of budget PSU so I dont know if adding a 780 will cause it to fail.

Thanks for the help :)

Not coming close to overloading it and it's getting proper cooling like it should anyway? Congratulations! It's fine.

At load its estimate would be 402 watts with the 780. I have 2, 120mm case fans in the front and most of the cables are out of the way, drive cage is infront of the bottom fan.

Is it intaking air from the outside?

The front 120s are taking air from the front vents, and the fan for the PSU is facing down

I used this PSU calculator, what do you think?

Either way it's probably fine.

Super overestimated. See my other comment.

No chance will you use 402w. Expect more like 300w with the system under full load and around 250w while gaming.

I just went with estimate it gives you in the partpicker. Thanks for the input! :)

No problem. That estimates is always over exaggerated.
