With the efficiency of the unit, there's about 100 - 150W of room to the max output the PSU is rated for based on my numbers above. So there's even room for some overclocks, probably not balls to the wall stuff on the CPU & GPU at the same time though.

It's interesting that the PSU requirements are so massively overblown. Maybe it's a hangover from the days of crappy PSUs & power hungry components.

Tom did a video measuring the same a number of years back with a 780 Ti on a 450W PSU, he found pretty much the same, I think the 780 Ti used to call for a 600W PSU aswell.
