I realize I need a MWE Gold but I don't know what brand or watt size I should go with.

    NVIDIA RTX 3070: Minimum 700W. We recommend at least 850W. NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti: Minimum 650W. We recommend at least 800W.

    Don't ever, ever, skimp on the amount of "power" you install.  I'm a fan of a little overkill than coming up short, or borderline at best.  

    I would opt for a 700W to a 1000W.  700 will do the job nicely but 850W is more protection.  Think about it ... for only a few dollars you can provide a nice protective environment for you readers.

    Hope this helps some.

    What you do is research the specification of the program/game you intend to run.

    Buy the hardware to make the optimal use of the program and games.  If you can afford it, buy better.

    When you buy a UPC you must match the chip to the motherboard, video cards are something else.
