    Default XFX Core 450W for GTX 1080 + 2600K

    Hello, I currently have a GTX 770 and an i7 2600K, both not OCed, but turbo boost / nvidia's GPU boost enabled.

    I'm going to upgrade to a GTX 1080.

    I also have around 6 drives (3 HDDs 3 SSDs), but very rarely more than 1 HDD and 2 SSDs work at the same time.

    I also have 2 120mm and 1 200mm case fans that came with the Enthoo Luxe, and a CM V8 (single 120mm).

    My current PSU is an XFX Core 450 (80+ bronze).

    I have it for several years, at least 5. It's very reliable so far, even under stress. Should I change it, or not? I am thinking about it, due to its age, and the fact that I have pushed it to its limits in the past (OCed the CPU by 0.5-6 GHz for a long time, and some minor OC on the GPU some times, without increasing voltage though). I have no reason to think it's dying at the moment, and the 1080 is supposed to consume equal or less power than the 770.

    In case that you need it, you can find PSU pricing here. It's in Greek, but it's quite user friendly.

    Thank you in advance for your time!


    P.S. If I should get a new one, my case is large enough, don't care about modular cables (but they're welcome), and the most important factor is efficiency / lowest possible power draw from the wall.

    Isn't that Seasonic S12II-Bronze base? I'd rather not use an old, group reguated design that was introduced in 2010 with modern components.

    It is, indeed, a rebranded Seasonic S12II.

    Is it a good idea to get a Seasonic Focus Plus 550W Gold (≅80€) or Platinum (≅ 100€)?

    Or should I look for a 450W model?

    Yes, Seasonic Focus is good, 550W is fine if you want headroom.

    I saw good power supplies on the link you provided in Greece

    Sometimes higher wattage Power supplies have better deals, although i don't think you need more than 550W with enough headroom

    80+ Bronze DC-DC and good quality and good price if you have a fixed or tight budget

    for a little more the

    80+ Gold Corsair TX-M and Seasonic Focus Gold 650,750 is a good choice

    The best of the crop is the Seasonic Prime Titanium
    however it is expensive
