Rate my new pc build?

"ForceBox Gamer Plus"

Processor- Intel Core i5 4670 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Quad Core Nvidia GTX Special

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit

BitFenix Phenom MATX Cube Case - Nvidia Edition - Black

Memory- TeamGroup Vulcan GOLD 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

Hard drive -Samsung 250GB SSD 840 EVO SATA 6Gb/

Secondary hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB

Graphics card- MSI GeForce GTX 750Ti OC 2048MB

So you think I could play some of the new games on high settings?

Also I want to swap the gtx 750ti for the gtx 760 but apparently I can't due to me only having 450watts and I need 500watts, is this true or will I be alright?

  1. Is this a prospective build, or do you already own it?
    Exactly what is the make/model of the psu?
    Exactly which gtx760?
    With a top quality psu, you may be ok.
    You could try it if you already own the parts.
    If you are buying, I would overprovision the psu regardless.

    I haven't bought this yet.
    This is the computer I can't find the type of psu http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FS-430-OE , the nvidia GeForce gtx 760 OC 2048mb.

    I think the psu is superflower which is ok.
    But, I would ask them to include a stronger psu of good quality.
    something around 650w would let you upgrade to a stronge graphics card in the future.

    The GTX750ti is weak compared to the cpu. For balance, you should be looking at a GTX760 or GTX770 class card.

    As an exercise list all the parts in this offering and the individual prices. See how much they are charging you for assembly. If the charge is high, consider doing it yourself.

    So upgrade the psu to about 500-550 (just for the moment I will upgrade in the future) and get the gtx 760 instead?
    You think I'll be good then?
  5. A 650w psu will not cost much more than a 550w psu.
    It will operate more quietly and efficiently at less than full load.
    Look for Seasonic or xfx.

    GTX760 is good.

    I'm using one website to get everything, so I will order my pc as normal with the gtx 760 and I will order a new 600watt at the same time.
