For a computer running an i9 10600k, RTX 3090 and all the other basic fix-ins, will I still have plenty of power?

I am not 100% sure if 1000w will be sufficient since the 3090 has some power draw spikes it seems. So I would be safe and go with something just a bit more overkill.

Like HYX HYX said the 3090 does have power draw spikes so I would go with more power cant go wrong then :smile:

The 3060 will run on a 1000w PSU without issues, however, the performance differences is definitely there.
I imagine a 1000w PSU will work but it wouldn't hurt to go to maybe a 1250wpsu or somewhere abouts there.
