    Hi,

    Planing to build this system:

    Ryzen 7 3700x
    G.SKILL Trident Z 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200MHz CL16
    Motherboard Asus PRIME X570-P
    Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB MLC V-NAND NVMe
    Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming 8GB

    Will my Enermax Infiniti 650 EIN650AWT handle it?

    thanks

    I don't think you'll have an issue. I had an Infiniti 720 for years powering older hardware that drew more power. Eventually it did start deteriorating as I had it for so many years but it was a solid high quality PSU for that time.

    Ryzen 7 3700x - 95W
    G.SKILL Trident Z 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200MHz CL16 - ~10W
    Motherboard Asus PRIME X570-P - ~15W
    Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB MLC V-NAND NVMe ~5W
    Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming 8GB ~220W

    Max total: ~330W

    So yes, a quality 650W power supply from enermax is more than enough for that system. Even a nice 500W PSU would suffice, actually.

    And if you were planning to do an overclock crazy enough to drive the total consumption towards >600W, you'd definitely wouldn't be making this kind of question.

    Yes, that power supply could run two of those computers.

    I see no need to apologize. There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding power supplies. A modern gaming PC is unlikely to draw >300-350W under the heaviest of loads and that would be a quite high end machine. So a ~500W unit will almost always suffice unless you have multiple GPUs (not recommended these days) or plan on an absurd overclock of the CPU and GPU.

    Never be sorry for your ignorance, especially if you're trying to improve it by questioning what you don't know. No one knows everything, admitting to our own ignorances is the first step in learning new things. :)
