Just a question about recommended PSU for rx vega 64 (newbie here)

Hello guys, im a newbie here. i just have some question regarding recommended PSU for Rx Vega 64
i have Evga 650w platinum rate, i wonder if rx vega 64(prefer water cool if not i can settle for air cool) can handle my psu,

Here is my build:

i5 6600k+cooler master d92
Asus z170A
ripjaws 4 16gb 2400mhz
2ssd+1hdd
Evga 650w(platinum rate)

i already own a Freesync monitor 1440p 144hz benq xl2730z i just want to pair it with vega.

also Does rx vega 64 can handle 1440p 144hz?

Hi - you should be fine with 650W as long as your power supply is still reliable. As for the 144Hz rate, we'll know soon enough once more reliable benchmarks etc are made public.

what if i OC both cpu and gpu. does my 650w psu can handle both OC?
how about the liquid cooler vega 64 leak says 350w maybe its too much??

im looking forward for this vega 64 if it can handle 1440p 144hz also for the power watt/perfomance.
pascal card are better in terms of power consumption and the suitable card for 144hz is 1080ti.

Think about the scenario though; will you really be pushing over 250 Watts (I'm not talking about TDP) from your CPU? Also, from the GPU itself, how much will you be pulling from the wall (or PSU)?

Comparing Nvidia & Intel TDP vs AMD TDP is completely different - Read up on how they each define their own "TDP" - don't fall for the marketing engine. From anyone. As for the 144Hz, again, I can't answer that as I don't know of anyone who has actually tested this nor do I want to speculate if it can actually handle that.
