Crisis 3 recently made me cry when I found my current build couldnt keep up with it. With next gen coming around (already there in some places) I figure its time for an upgrade.
So the two major issues Im having is regarding PSUs and bottlenecking.
So the graphics card im pretty much set on is MSI version of the gtx 760. My current power supply does not meet the minimum requirements for it which is 500W so I need a new one. Im aiming at something a little higher than that and looking at either a 600W or 625W psu. Im not sure which one will be more value for money. Links to both are below:
Any thoughts on which is better ? Also Im not really sure whether either are compatible with the gtx 760 in terms of connectors and such but surely they are right?
On to the the second issue. Will there be any bottleneck problems after installing the card into my current build which has a i5-3470 CPU? I will only be in a position to upgrade my CPU in about a years time.
I would go for a corsair, seasonic or XFX brand PSU as they are the most reliable. I think that the only cooler master PSUs that come recommended are the "Cooler master V series" because they are actually made by corsair.
