EVGA SuperNOVA 650W

Hyporos420

24 months ago

Would this be enough wattage for: Ryzen 1600, GTX 1060 6GB, both overclocked?

Also, what are the differences between the G1, G2, G3, GS, GQ versions?

It would be plenty of power.

Also, what are the differences between the G1, G2, G3, GS, GQ versions?

The G1 is a pretty mediocre unit I wouldn't bother. Plenty of better options out there.

The G2+ G3 are both a million times better, the g3 is essentially a newer slightly better g2. It's biggest advantage is that it's smaller. However the 550/650w units only have a 7yr warranty. You'd have to go up to 750 to get the 10yr warranty.

The GS isn't really worth it. It's not a bad unit at all, but it's poorly priced. You could get the G2/G3 which are better for the same price. Essentially a Seasonic G series, with some changes.

The GQ is a good option, however the G2/G3 650 is currently cheaper/the same price and since it's better just go with that.

I'd go with the 650w G3: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/y88H99/evga-supernova-g3-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0650

More then enough. A good 450W psu would also be plenty. G3 is the best and most modern of those you listed. G2 was its predecessor and still a very good psu. G1 you should avoid its not that good. GQ is semi Modular. GS can't remember.

So i would recommend the G3 or G2.

Here's my write-up of power consumption, my similar build maxes at ~440W: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/244738-estimated-vs-actual-power-consumption

As mentioned, a 550W to 750W G2 or G3 would be plenty. I have the 650W G3 and it's been solid.

Looks like they have a 750W G3 for ~70 currently: https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=220-G3-0750-X1
