    Question Ideal PSU for this system?

    Hi, I am building a rig with the following specs. I want to know whether a Seasonic X-650 will be sufficient or not. I'll be using this PC mainly for content creation with premiere pro, after effects, cinema 4d and some Max/MSP (strickly for video art purposes). Though am not a hardcore gamer but I would like to enjoy some games like the upcoming Forza Horizon 3, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4 and titles like Far Cry Primal and Doom. I'll be overclocking the CPU and also the graphics card, duh!


    Asus X99 STRIX motherboard
    Intel Core i7 6800K processor
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB DDR4 2400 MHz RAM (4 x 8 GB)
    MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G graphics card
    Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD (x3)
    Seagate 2 TB SSHD (x2)
    Deepcool GF140 (x2), GF120 (x1) fans
    NZXT Kraken X61 cooler
    NZXT Phantom 240 cabinet with 2 x 120mm case fans
    Logitech MK345 wireless keyboard & mouse
    Wacom One medium pen tablet

    A high-end 450W PSU is probably enough if the CPU OC isn't to extreme, but a high-end 550W is definitely enough, 650W is useless.
