I do a lot of computer web designing as well as work with Dreamweaver and other types of programs. I also am a very big gamer when I have the time to that is. I have never had any issues with my power supply even know I have heard bad things about it. I am looking to upgrade to either i5-2500k, i7-2600k or the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T.. I have never been a big AMD fan in the past but that was mostly due to peoples opinion on the matter, I never had a AMD based system but I am opened minded on this. THE QUESTION IS can my PSU handle the type of upgrade I am looking to get or do I need to get a new one as well??
Any type of input good, bad or whatever I would like to hear some outside opinions before I go ahead and spend all this money.
As long as you are only upgrading motherboard/processor and RAM your power supply is fine . Get the 2500K for gaming only or if you use multithreaded apps get the 2600K. Either one destroys the AMD. Even with overclocking I think you are fine with that PSU as long as you stick with a GTX460.
I have absolutely no plans on buying a new graphics card since I just got the 460gtx a few months ago. I was worried about the new mobo/ram/CPU combo taking to much juice and my PSU not be strong enough for it. I do plan on overclocking my mobo and cpu maybe not to the extreme but some at least. Will that be the ending of my PSU or could it handle a little overclocking?
It is fine for overclocking. Sandy bridge uses less power than what you have now I believe and the GTX460 really only needs a quality 450w PSU you are fine with 550w. The OCZ is not a bad power supply.
