So I decided this week to get a 460w PSU from Cooler Master. Understand that this is a pretty out-dated system and I have a limited amount of money. Yet I am still very angry for the fact I had to sell my other system for only $300.
I cannot buy a mobo, or a new cpu, or new ram. I have only one other option that isn't very attractive to me, but I'm willing to try. I am going to buy either an ATI Radeon 7750, or an ATI Radeon 7790. I am leaning towards the 7790, for obvious reasons since it has relatively low power consumption.
My question is whether or not I should get the 7790, it says it needs 500w as a recommendation, yet as I understand, I am removing mostly the disc drive, FDD, and other various components leaving me with a mobo, ram, cpu, psu, two HDD's, and included with a GPU of around 140w under full load.
I'll mainly be recording gameplay at around 1280x768 and I need power along with efficiency. I understand the CPU is going to bottleneck this card but I'm a little short of desperate.
