2070 S - Is it compatible with my 600w PSU

Hello,

As the title suggests would a 2070 Super be able to run in my system with a 600w PSU?

I've read the recommended PSU is 650w, I also see the TPD is not all that different from the 2070.

That said I don't plan on overclocking, or adjusting anything. I am a very basic user just looking to get the best possible with what I have.

Any feedback is appreciated.

PS also let me know of some of the better 2070 Supers or 2070's out there if you can to help me in my search.

No, the Smart is a very bad quality power supply. Do not use it.

At least get a 650W CX, that would be enough.

$100 buys the TXM 650W, which is a much better PSU for the future.

Why not the 550W version?

more buffer for future upgrades, the CX has a 5 year warranty, while the TXM is 7.

By the time you really need 650W, though, you'll be able to afford stuff much better than a CX... keep in mind a well configured single rail 550W PSU can handle even an overclocked 9900K and 2080TI system just fine, so I doubt anyone needs 650W now let alone in the future, when performance per watt will increase...

You guys rock, I appreciate the feedback, when I bought the components I was on a tight budget, but I will chuck this PSU quick. I saw a decent deal on an EVGA 750w
