    Your power supply is fine.

    Either a GTX 580 1.5GB or GTX 680 2GB will be a great card for your setup. You will definitely see a big performance increase with either.

    When I upgraded from 6 to 12GB of RAM, I didn't notice much of a change, so if you're considering a lesser GPU, I'd say forgo the RAM upgrade and grab a 580 or 680.

    So going from 6 gb to 12 gb mem won't make much difference . . and I likey the idea of the GTX 580/680 suggestions . . I think I'll go with one or the other . .

    The other question I had was do you think my Seasonic Gold 650 watt PSU can handle the 1.5 to 2.0 GB Graphic cards
  3. OOPS . . sorry Ubercake, I didn't see your answer on PSU . . Please ignore my last question . . thanks again
