Power Supply

On my order, I have a notice on the Maximum Required Power - 853W Consider upgrading your power supply but when I upgrade the power supply I get a notice saying my order only requires 545W and an 850W power supply is not required?

Which power supply should I go for?

Is there any danger of getting a power supply which is more than what is required?

What are your specs? Its impossible for us to tell you what we think your power requirements are without those. Ideally the link to your configuration would be helpful too (at the bottom of the post to forum page).

Looks like it could be a bug from the screenshots though.

Your right nursemorth,

with my machine spect out i am around the same 850w, unless they plan to do future upgrades with maybe 2nd gpu.

I have already upgraded and paid for 1000W supply.
Is there any danger or disadvantage of having a 1000W supply when only an 850W supply is required?

After exchange charges, I would not save very much on changing back to an 850W supply now plus if I do upgrade my GPU to a 3080 which I plan too a 1000W supply may come in useful?

There's no disadvantage to having the 1000w, it'll only draw as much power as it needs. I had one in my old system as I didn't want a TXm variant in my unit and the 750w/850w RMx ones were out of stock at the time of ordering.

Having 1000w will cover you for 4000 and 5000 series GPUs, I reckon! 😁 (y)
