Hi, i'm looking to upgrade my GPU and i'm fairly confident that my PSU will need bumping up too.
This is primarily for gaming + recording game footage.
with that said here's my current rig:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1100T 3.3ghz
MoBo: GigaByte M68MT-S2P
Memory: 2x 4GB 1333mhz
GPU:Radeon 6770 1GB DDR5
PSU: Corsair 500w
HDD: 2x Seagate 1TB 7200rpm
i don't know if this is useful but there is a small fan on the back and a medium sized fan on the top of the case. Tower casing
i'm open to suggestions as i doubt i would be upgrading this rig anytime soon after this GPU + PSU upgrade. Ideally i'd like them to last me a few years.
when it comes to the PSU i pretty much have no idea what i'm looking for besides a 750watt PSU pretty much. (i have no idea how to work out the Volt+Amp requirements or how it works even)
So any help in the PSU front would be much appreciated also.
That's about it i think, i've heard to 290 runs hot would that be a problem for longevity? would the 780 be a better choice?
and which/what PSU would you recommend?
hopefully play things like BF4 - Ghosts - Dark souls 2 - Skyrim on ultra + ENB that kind of thing
Thanks very much for your help, it's much appreciated.
