Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY 4GB HBM NITRO OC Power supply requirements

I was just wondering if a 650W power supply would be enough to handle a Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY 4GB HBM NITRO OC.

And also, im kinda thinking about going for a GTX 1060 for the lower price tag, but i have a freesync monitor, would it be worth the 100 dollars?
Or maybe just get a RX 480 and go lower on the performance.

  1. What are the rest of your parts? The 8Gb 480 would not be a bad choice.

    Right now this is my setup:
    Intel Core i5-6600K Skylake
    ASUS B150M-A, Socket-1151
    Crucial DDR4 2133MHz 16GB (2x8GB)
    XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5
    And it turns out its only a 600W PSU: Corsair CX600, 600W PSU
  3. Best answer
    The CX600 is not a very reliable psu, but it's more than enough power for a 480.

    Aight! thanks a lot, one last question: What do you think would be best:XFX RX 480 GTR Black edition, Sapphire Nitro+ 4gb or Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8gb
  6. Get the cheapest non reference 8Gb version. The Gigabyte G1 would be great.

    Okay, may i ask the reason for that?
    Just trying to learn :)
  8. Because you end up paying a lot extra just for a factory overclock when you could just overclock yourself. Because you don't want to end up paying WAY more than a 6GB GTX1060 would have cost.

    Seems reasonable, but after looking into some reviews Gigabyte G1 doesnt seem to have a very good cooling system, so that kinda limits my overclocking options since i dont have the best cooling system myself, but il look into it myself!
    Thanks a lot for the help!
    Have a good one.
