Is DDR4-3200 really necessary for a computer strictly made for homeschool?

Failure to read.

 

It is not a "cheap" PSU. Super Flower makes some of the world's best PC PSUs. It will keep on ticking long after the rest of the components have popped their capacitors...

Well, 450W isn't exactly outstanding in any way. Unless you are using it to fix an old computer.

So what else would you need?

 

A pump for a custom loop?

Theres more than your motherboard and CPU, mate.

You are really stuck on water cooling as your strawman.

 

How about extra drives? Extra expansion cards? Why would anyone build any PC and limit their exapndability when for a few bucks more (or not because DDR4-3200 in this machine isn't going to help) they can buy a more powerful PSU?

Well, they can't guess you have 3200 RAM, either, so...

Why not put your heads together and figure out how to get that 1060 into the OP's config?

 

A liitle girl needs a better educational device!

As I have said before, NVIDIA assume that you probably have a processor, motherboard, motherboard and everything that is required for the computer to function. 

 

I guess I have to keep repeating because reading is not your strong point.

And nothing extra. Thank you AGAIN for clarifying.

But you are being overly argumentative at this point which although not your fault exactly, means people won't really pay attention 

 

The main issue is that a Super Flower 450W is not the same kind of beast as an ordinary 450W

As I said before, are they guessing you have 3200 (OC) Ram?

 

Reading doesn't seem to be yours either.

A game of "he said, she said" is not helping the OP and a young person that needs a computer...

Neither is recommending overclocked ram or an under-powered PSU.

Assuming NVIDIA leave no margin for error and that a basic PC with a Geforce GTX 1060 will use exactly 400W of power (which is not very likely), overclocking the memory won't increase power consumption be more than 50W

So a GPU never goes over 400W? If you OC it, it's not going to be 400W...

 

So 50W more, you are at 450W, the PSU's limit. You are in danger of harming your computer this way.

 

Edit: And assuming is no 100% guarantee.

You must be really bad at reading.

 

For the fourth time, I am talking about the power consumption of the whole PC.

And are you considering the whole system, as the HDDs and Controller Cards as adrynalyne said?
