I'm receiving my STRIX 3090 OC on friday and I'm not my psu will cope with my setup
I have a Corsair 750w hx750i platinum.
My rest of setup is 8700K overclocked to 4.9, strix z370-e motherboard, 2x nmv2 samsung 1gb 970 pro.
I plan to overclock the strix rtx 3090 as well.
Should I upgrade the psu to corsair platinum hx850w or hx1000w? (Future proof counts).

Hi Man, Niels from The Netherlands here,
I have about the same issue, HX750i, Intel 5930k (6core12t) and an ordered Strix 3090 OC.
I am scared for the 480W bios of the Strix3090, and I also plan to watercool it when the Aquacomputer waterblocks will hit the market.
I think the HX750i is a very good PSU but its a very, very tight fit for such power hungry components...
3 days ago I bought a 4month used Corsair AX1600i for 250 euro's.
I wanna be future and upgrade-proof.
And I dont wanna (near) kill such expensive components.
If I was in your shoes i would go for a new HX1000i?HX1200i or a very good second hand AX1200/AH1600i.
And dont go for something like 850Watt, Its almost the same as 750 and you will regret!
Dont let you PSU walk on his toes!
