I want to add a tiny (128 gb) ssd to my pc to hold the windows os only.
I am wondering how the heck to figure out if this will push the 300w psu past its limit.
Already, the general opinion seems to be that one needs at least 500w in a system with an rx580 graphics card. That apparently isn't true, as my computer find great, but I'm thinking any further hardware could be the straw to break the camel's back????
Solved! Go to Solution.

It's only 5VDC and less than 5W added. That's typical of a Samsung EVO 860 (but 500GB).
