    Default PSU for 3060 Ti

    Hello,

    Perhaps I'm getting ahead of myself (considering both pricing and availability of hardware) and/or perhaps you guys might not have sufficient information yet, but I wanted to know if my Corsair RM550x would be able to handle a future upgrade to a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. Current CPU is Ryzen 7 3700X but I could also upgrade it to a 5800X or a SKU in-between the 5600X and 5700X (should AMD release one).

    I'm guessing the RM550x would suffice but I prefer to have some reassurance, just in case. If an upgrade would be necessary or recommended, I'm also guessing that a ~650W would be the goal.

    The max power consumption with a Ryzen 7 5800X and RTX 3060 Ti will be around 350W under load, so no problem for your current RM550x.

    Thanks for the input.
    I assume it would be recommended to use two separate PCIe cables to power graphics cards with two connectors. Or does that apply to higher-end cards?

    Yes, that shouldn't be needed for a RTX 3060 Ti and also isn't an option for your RM550x which only has one cable.

    Oh, yeah, I don't know how that slipped my mind.
