  1. Power supply watts and budget?
  2. Best answer
    You've not mentioned mobo. You can use GTX 760 with this CPU easily. 500W will be more than enough
  3. power supply is 500w peak budget is anything 200-350ish.
  4. not 100% sure on the MB tring to find out now so far I found out:
    Intel X58 motherboard.
    sorry I've been slacking on pc research havent had a reason too keep up in long time

  6. We should stick with your original query regarding the graphics card.
  7. can I only use cards that are pci express 2.0 x 16 or can I also use the 3.0 ones
  8. PC is good, EasyLover's advice for GTX 760 also.
  9. You can use cards with 3.0 on your PCIe 2.0 x16 slot. No issue there
  10. thanks for the info looking up some 760's now
