power supply


[link to this post]
 
Hi people just a quick question .Just bought a hp omen 880 013na pc and was wondering about the 300w psu and is it ok to run the system safely.The pc has i7 7700, radeon rx580 3gb,,16gb ram and a optical drive. now I know its a hp checked system but to me power supply seems a bit weedy and just a bit concerned it might go belly up. Any advice would be great

You could try a calculator like this ..Link
It may be a little generous, after all they are selling PSUs.

Seems weedy to me:

This PSU calc site:

https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator

Returns about 325W load, with minimum recommended of 375W. Personally, given a 3-5 year life expectancy, and potential heat as the years roll on, I'd go 450W. That at least allows for other add-ons, such as USB stuff, extra fans, and so on.

Yeah it's what I thought. Don't know why a big company like HP would be frugal with psu. luckily have a evga 600w spare so might just fit that.
