Hi guys,

I just recently ordered an RX 590 to replace my broken GTX 1060.

Do you guys think a 550w would be enough for my new graphic card? System builder says it would be enough, but i did some research and turned out that RX 590 uses more power than 1060.

THANKS

Barely enough estimated wattage? Give me your part list

Looking at your list with the i5 6500 (if that is your pc) 550W is plenty for when you replace that 1060 with a 590.

Yes the 590 consumes more power but even a 450W would be enough really.

Depends on the quality of the power supply some can put out nothing close to what they say and the rest of the parts your using.

From your saved parts list yes no problems.
