No. You need AT LEAST a very good 550w unit. 650w would be a lot better if you have ANY plans to overclock the graphics card OR the CPU. Could the 1070 ti RUN on a 450w unit? Probably, if it was an excellent PSU model. Would it be smart to do that? No, it would REALLY, REALLY not be. It would be loud, and you'd probably cut the life of your power supply right in half. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm Click the spoiler box below for my model recommendations: Let's start with the biggest misconception out there, which is that if a unit has high watts it will be ok or is good. No. Just, no. There are plenty of 750-1000w units out there that I wouldn't trust to power a light bulb and might in fact be more dangerous due to their supposedly high capacity due to poor or non-existent protections inside the unit. If the platform isn't good to begin with, how many watts or amps it says it can support is irrelevant. Higher 80plus certification doesn't mean anything, UNLESS … [Read more...] about Is a 450 PSU enough for a 1070 ti and A Ryzen 2600 ?

This comes as no surprise to anyone at this point, except for maybe President Donald Trump. I suppose we should be grateful that this time it was Facebook’s management that revealed the news, in a departure from the company’s previous stance of stubbornly resisting pressure from the … [Read more...] about Mark Zuckerberg wanted Facebook to change the world. And it has — but not for the better.
Goodness above - where does the time go? It only seems like yesterday that I started working at the Irish News, turns out it was actually 2002 - a shocking 16 years ago. How did that happen? Where has the time gone? This week, the arrival of my wedding anniversary really brought home to me just how fast time is going and how quickly my life is changing. On Tuesday, Darren and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary and while we were both delighted to mark the occasion, I found myself completely taken aback at just how quickly the past four years have gone. Really, it seems like yesterday that I was picking up my wedding dress with my mum and sister. The evening before the wedding was the most exciting time - might have been the champagne - and the next day was just magical. Everything I could have hoped for and more.
