Is 550Watts Enough for RTX 3060TI.?

Hey Guys.. Planning to buy RTX 3060TI...Problem is GPU Prices...But setting that aside...

I only got a 550 Watts PSU...and NVIDIA Recommends at least 600 Watts..
So.. Will it be safe...Will it work properly...? Is anyone using such setup..?
Please Help. Thanks.
 
Oh.. CPU is i3-10100F... comes around 65 Watts TDP...and a m-ATX Board.
I used Newegg Power Supply Calculator...
To my surprise... it recommended just 400Watts PSU..!?

So.. I guess 550Watts PSU is good.

What brand/make psu you got also matters else 550w is more than enough unless you planning on oc and adding more components.
 
Hmm... System Stability..? Can u describe more..
I check everywhere.. and everyone is saying 550 Watts will be enough..
SO.. r u using such system..? Can system Crash with such wattage..?

I have the same psu but I'd recommend to change it in future because these were the same psu that were blowing up few months ago.

Post complete configuration with all peripherals like no of hdds/ssds, cpu/mobo, fans etc.

Still grab some opportunity on gpu as anyways thats the priority right now and psu can be upgraded anytime with ample of choices around.
 
MobO: Asus Prime H410 M-E ( m-ATX )
SSD: Just 1 M.2 500GB..WDGREEN..
CPU : i3-10100F
Fans : Stock for CPU and 1 Chassis Fan..
RAM: Corsair 8GBx2 @ 2666Mhz ( Can be boost to 3200 Mhz but have to change CPU:rolleyes: )

it's a simple setup...nothing fancy..
So.. I think It can handle 3060ti at 550Watts...Problem is just to grab one..:confused:
