The Nvidia website states that the 3080 requires at least a 750W psu
but according to most reviews the FE card itself draws 320-360W which seems to be similar to oced 1080Ti and 2080Ti
so I am wondering if my 2yr old EVGA Supernova G3 650W psu will be able to handle the new gpu

rest of my build is:
i7 4790K stock with Cryorig H7
MSI z97 Gaming5
3x SATA Samsung ssds
1x nvme ssd
4x4 gb
no rgb
current gpu asus Gtx 1080 Strix OC
 
The main reason I want to get this gpu is I want to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Horizon Zero Dawn at 4K (not ultra high fps 1080p)

    The OuterVision Power Supply Calculator has been updated to include NVIDIA RTX 3070/3080/3090 video cards, use that to estimate your system wattage need.

    Thanks for sharing the link
    what I don't understand is that according to that calculator the load wattage will be 577W and yet the recommended psu wattage is only 627W.
    Correct me if I am wrong but wouldn't a hypothetical 627W 80+ psu only supply 627x80%=501W?

    80+ is the Efficiency Rating.

    Will your single 12V rail 650W PSU work? = Almost certainly.

    Would I rush to buy another/stronger PSU? = No, not according to your system wattage estimate.

    You can also use the EVGA Power Meter and see what it says, but the OuterVision Calculator is more detailed/accurate.
