My PC is Windows 7
- i7-2600 CPU 3.40GHz
- Samsung 2gb 1rx8 pc3 10600 (8 GB RAM)
- GTX 560 ti 1024mb
- Liteon ps-6451-5 (i think like 400 watt)

Can someone tell my what i need to upgrade or change?
I'm becoming a hardcore gamer and also my pc is just too slow for me.
I was already going to get a GTX 760 sometime when i get the money but can someone just tell me what i need.

The PSU DEFINITELY needs to be upgraded (Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic). Also, you could get a better GPU. The gtx760 is a good choice.

No, that PSu is not good. Coolermaster makes junk PSUs. Stick with the brands I listed.

That is a great GPU.

No that is even worse.

Get an xfx550w unit. It will be perfect for your system.


I just want to make sure if i get something only 550 isnt that barely an upgrade from my 400w? Also i want it to last because when i get 760 and stuff wont it require much more watts? I might go for a corsair 600 wat since its under 70

Quality is what you want. A 550w PSU can run ANY single GPU without issue. The xfx unit is amazing quality for money.

The corsair cx line is not very good. They are made with low end capacitors. This is a known issue. I had a cx600 fail on me.

The xfx550 is perfect for your system. The gtx760 will only use 168w MAX under full load. you could run it on a 400w unit technically but yours is junk. Get the XFX, plain and simple.

On ebay you could get probably around $70-80 for it if it is in nice shape.
