Hi All

I managed to get one of these today for £750 so will be a nice upgrade from the 2070S

But currently have a 650 PSU and looks like the MSI uses 3 x 8pin plugs and recommends a 750watt PSU

Can someone recommend a PSU unstuck please

Thanks in advance

Precision x1 pegged my 10700k and rtx 3090 as needing a 850W.
The 850W was suggested for availability to collect today

Stick with the Seasonic. That should be more than enough. I have the same 3080 with a Seasonic Prime PX 850W.
I also undervolted the GPU a bit and it's dead silent and very cool.

Cheers mate

What monitor have you got running with the 3080. I'm currently on 1440p with 165hz but if I go 4K I assume I can't run 4K @120 with RT on etc etc

I have two 27" 1440p 144hz monitors and they both run fine. :)

Some games are either really demanding or badly optimized for RT, like Watchdogs Legion so you don't even get 120 fps in 1440p. I would stay on 1440p if I were you.
