Solved

Need help fast!

I have a Dell Desktop that my dad bought, and he gave it to me last week. Its a Dell Inspiron 530 with these specs:

-Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33 GHz
-Dell 0FM586 Standard/Generic Motherboard
-4GB DDR2 RAM
-Integrated Intel HD Graphics( Some shitty Intel G33/G31 Chipset Graphics card)
-Same Hard Drives
-350W Generic Dell Power Supply

----------------------------------------------

So far, ive upgraded the PSU with a 600W EVGA 80PLIUS Psu, but i want to put in a " EVGA Geforce GTX 760 FTW 4GB with ACX Cooler"

I just want to make sure that my system isnt too crappy for the PSU. If you could respond soon, it would be very helpful.

Thanks,
Harchint

  1. The problem is that some of these motherboards don't accept the addition of GPUs so you'd better check if it accepts the addition of GPus before buying the supplied one.

    Oh dont worry, It accepts the addition of GPU's. I had an R7 260x in it before but i decided to go a bit higher. I just need to make sure it will run at its best, and wont be bottlenecked
  3. I think the R9-270X is the best you can afford with this processor
  4. The R9-270X Is equivalent to the 7870 HD Radeon , or actually it is but just tweaked and rebranded so I think you should be fine with it .

    That's all well and dandy, but the real question is how bottlenecked will the 760 be?

    I don't really see the reason why you would spend the extra dollars on a 10% Increase in performance , you might aswell get the R9-280 but that might be a little of a gamble in CPU based games , I think the 760 Will do well but also in CPU based games it will fall back so my advice is get the 270X/280 now and wait till u have more money and invest in upgrading the whole rig
