    So i am planning to build my own new gaming pc but i am not sure if a 700w PSU is enough to run a ryzen 7 with an rx 5700 xt. Does someone now that? I heard that the Seasonic core gold GM should do the work but i am not quite sure.

    My full specs:
    Ryzen 7 2700x
    Gigabite rx 5700 xt
    Msi B450 gaming plus max
    G.Skill Ripjaws 16gb 3600 mhz
    Sharkoon tg4
    m.2 samsung 500gb ssd
    WD blue 3,5 inch 1 TB hdd

    My budget is around 1000 or 1100 euro

    A good 600w would work let alone 700w.

    Gaming can't load that CPU to full TDP so 650W would be fine. (there's no 700W Core GM)
    Anyway for gaming Ryzen 3600 is better.
    That 2018's Zen+ architecture simply lags behind in single core performance.

    And just forget those Samsung's brand overpriced SSDs.
