Will I Need A New PSU?


Darkening Demise

500W is more than enough to drive those two new components - only thing that gets absurdly power hungry in a normal setup is the graphics card, and a 500W one is well within the recommendation for a 1060.

 

My only question is, how old is the power supply?  The reason I ask is the i5 you're currently using came out in 2014, and 5 years is typically how long you should trust a power supply.  That being said, the no-name power supply I got in a Gateway in 2011 - and the i3-2120 processor that came with it - are both going strong.
