Solved!

Adding a tiny SSD to my 580-130...is psu adequate?

HP Pavillion Power 580-130
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

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????

@FartyMcButts,

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

Hello, to follow up & confirm, it does appear the marginal power requirement of an SSD is negligible, and I was able to add a small SSD to my computer with no issue 🙂
