Hey guys, to keep it short, I am about to get a gaming PC. But before I get all excited about it, I need to plan for my protection.
So here will be the parts:
Intel i7 7700
ROG Z270F Motherboard
ASUS GTX 1060
16GB Red Tesla RAM (2 Sticks)
750W Power supply (Cooler Master V-750)
1 7.2k RPM HDD
1 SSD (120GB)
I then used the Outervision Power Supply calculator, the results were
Load Wattage: 378W
Recommended UPS Rating: 750VA
Recommended PSU Rating: 428W
Yes it's not totally accurate, but can I rely on these ratings?
I bought a power strip with surge protector already. And i'm planning to buy an AVR. The first problem is, is a 500w AVR enough to power this rig even when gaming? (Given that I'm trusting the Outervision Calculator) Secondly, other people are saying that having a power strip and AVR together is not a good idea. Why is that?
I just want to protect my PC, any reply will be appreciated.
