I am starting to get back into pc gaming and i'm looking to upgrade my video card. I am currently using a geforce 9600gt and I'm looking to upgrade to maybe a gtx 460 or 465. I have been looking at newegg and I'm just wondering if there is any brand in particular that is generally better then others? Any brand to definitely stay away from? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks.
My other specs are
Intel quad core 2.4gz
AsusTek Basewood Motherboard
4 gigs ram
The info you seek is on the side of the PSU itself. Raidmax is a junk brand so I wouldn't use to try and power any serious card. BIG difference in power draw between the 9600GT and the GTX460. I'd upgrade the PSU and then the CPU.
What is the budget? Not all of our banks are equal.
I do know the Corsair 400W PSU is usually pretty cheap. Might have a rebate on it, but it should be around $35-$40 after rebate. You might want to spring for their 450W PSU. The Antec Earthwatts 430-500W PSUs are also good choices.
