The power supply unit (PSU) is one of the most critical components of your gaming PC, yet it is often overlooked. Many new gamers are unaware of its importance and end up choosing an incompatible PSU, which can damage other expensive components.

To assist you, we have tested the power requirements of all the different PC components currently available and developed a PSU calculator. This tool will determine the exact PSU wattage you need to power your build.

Simply select your PC components, and you will be presented with the recommended wattage, along with several Tech4Gamers tried and tested power supplies that will work perfectly well with your PC.
