Is this a better time to buy or build a new PC than it was earlier this year, when we saw component shortages and skyrocketing prices? Let's take a look at how the market has changed in the past few months.
When I upgraded to a rtx 3080 I also upgraded my PSU from a evga Gold 750w to a evga Gold 850w based on Nvidia's suggestion of a minimum of 750w.This article seems to be going along with the conventional wisdom of whats reasonable to use, and is recommending a couple of different 850w's.So I thought I would follow nvidia's advise and play it safe having more head room by going with the 850w. Then it was pointed out to me that there was a PSU calculator on neweggs website and it calculated that I was using around 600w. I Wish I would have known that before I bought a new PSU.
