@Ubrales--seriously? $120 power supplies for a guy that wants an $80 graphics card? Are you even trying to be helpful?

@manlaiza25: Do you already own the computer and all those parts? I can't recommend you go right out and buy the GTS 450. What games do you play? Are you in the U.S. (so I can list parts)?

It's not the cost, but the quality!

The Corsair PSU will provide great service and allow for future GPU upgrades, without the need to buy another PSU for the new (and usually higher) GPU.

I own a great Corsair PSU. But why are you recommending $120 PSUs for an $80 upgrade? You could easily recommend a $60 XFX 650W that's excellent as well. I'm just trying to understand how that suggestion is supposed to help the guy.

Is the XFX that you are recommending Modular? I see a lot of advantages in Modular, and Modular is what I recommend; and Corsair.

When it comes to CPUs, it is Intel for me, even though I have nothing against those who choose AMD.

i think hes on the wrong thread. that or hes just trolling.

and OP if you are asking if your system can run it. then yes it will with no problems. although i would suggest the 5770 over the gts450 but thats just me.

hey dalauder, what game is your gif from? i remember that monster thingy but i cant remember the game.

I Would recommend getting the Evga GTs 450 SC at $100 at Nvidia videocard OC better than ATI/Radeon videocards so OC high for better performance and it can defeat the 5770... Also ATI dont support PhysicX so just go with Nvidia...

I doubt he's gonna do a heavy OC on his graphics. Either way, I'd say find a 5770 for $80 or hold out for a GTX 460 deal (not SE). I'm really not a fan of the GTS 450.

No, that XFX PSU isn't modular (which is nice), but you won't find a good modular PSU in the price range we're talking about.

OP--I don't trust your PSU, but if you already own it you're probably not buying a new one.
