My computers specs are:
4x inel core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz
Nvidia GeForce 9500GT
2x 2GB DDR3 ram
460W coolermaster power supply (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=3686)
I would like to upgrade my video card and am not sure which one I should get. I was looking at a Nvidia GTX 560 or something around that price range. (I'm from NZ so thought I would use that because I don't know cost in USD)
Will that give me any noticeable increase in performance while gaming (at the moment I have to turn resolution and some settings down on games like skyrim etc.)
Also how involved in the installation process? is it just a matter of removing the old video card replacing and installing drivers or is a a lot of work?
Ok read the label and its 460W. Here is a link to it http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=3686
I checked the NVidia wesbite and for the GTX 560 it says the minimum system power requirements are 450W. Is it fine to be just above the minimum or will I need to get a better power supply?
you have 36amps on the 12v rail. I think you should be okay the way things sit. For me, normally I strive for more power but I think you'll be fine. Don't sweat it. The 560 or something in the same range will totally blow the 9500 away and be a grand addition to your machine.
