Currently, I have a Corsair SF600. Do you think this will be enough for a 3080 along with my 10700 (non-K)? My initial thoughts are that it should be seeing as the card shouldn't draw more than 350W and the CPU never more than 150W or so. The only other things I have in the setup are a M.2 drive and a tower HSF.

Realistically, the only other option right now is the Silverstone 700W SFX platinum. The Corsair SF750 is about as hard to find at MSRP as a 3080.

It's not the average full power that is the problem, but massive spikes. If it's in good condition, it'll probably do fine. If you're on the edge, you can probably underclock/undervolt a bit with an unnoticeable reduction of FPS.

It's practically brand new. I just picked it up over the summer. I'll probably roll with it unless I have issues. No need to spend $175 for no reason.
