Hi,

500w PSU for this build should be fine get a second opinion though I could be wrong.

Excuse the interjection folks  :)

 

 

:welcome:   CENTRIU,

 

To be more accurate we will need the brand name of the video cards but fwiw, X2 AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 256bit in Crossfire the minimum recommended PSU output is typically 750 watts and 50 amps on the +12V rail, card manufacturers will often overstate the PSU requirement however there is no getting away from the fact that if you do not follow their guidelines and things go pear shaped they are under no obligation to honour any warranty.

The GPU is only 1, my mistake. On the website it only says AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 256bit. The brand isn't mentioned.

No problem  :thumbsup:

 

Being honest I would not use the proposed PSU with the build because when independently tested that model never put out anywhere near the claimed wattage and it is not even 80% efficiency rated, a bronze rated PSU is the minimum I would suggest with in any build to be on the safe side, see the link here for the Coolermaster performance results.

 

Is the list of parts one that you have put together or is it one that is pre-built, if the latter post a link for us to take a look at please.

 

BTW: I am finding 500W and 33 amps on the +12V rail for a single MSI version of the card but other brands may vary.

The PC is pre-built. I thought it would be more convenient not to post the link because it is in another language. Here: http://www.speedcomp...z/speed-game-i/
