Default Re: Will my power supply work with my other parts?

Video cards usually indicate how many watts your system will need overall.
I check 1 of 3 (or all 3) places, either the Newegg Details tab of the card, the AMD/Nvidia website, or guru3d.com.

So a 550W power supply should work just fine for your build.

On a side note, have you taken a look at the AMD FX-4100 CPU?
Its cheaper than the 970 with the power of a 980 from what I've seen, and will work with your build without any changes.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
