Thanks for the suggestion but I have have already bought and installed the Cooler master PSU. I was just wondering if it if it was enough to power my system because I have been having some random crashes in games like Skyrim, Shogun Total War 2, and Civilization V and I thought that maybe at times my system was eating up too much power and that is why it crashed, but I trust you when you say that my PSU is good enough for the job so that dismisses that possible culprit. I would also like to ask you If that same PSU would still power my system if I were to add another EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti SuperClocked 1GB GDDR5 to it, this would be very helpful to know because I am planning on buying one to add on soon and I am wondering if I should buy a new PSU with it.
Yea that's what I was afraid of, I really shouldn't have been cheap when I was buying my PSU. I will take you recommendation and get the corsair tx750 v2 when I buy another graphics card to go along with my current one. Also if what you said is true about how adding another GTX 550 ti wont work for my mother board do you know of a card that would work out for my motherboard?
er.... your motherboard's specifications page (check link in my 1st post) says only crossfirex support up to 4 gpus i.e. only supports up to 2x dual gpu cards such as gtx 690. no mention of sli which is nvidia's system of combining multiple gpus.
edit: the crashing can also be for driver issues or game's software issues, keep those in mind too. i put the blame on the cm elite 460 because of cm's highly variable quality of psus and their habit of over speccing psus.
So whats the difference between crossfirex and sli because my graphics card says that it is "SLI ready". Also please try and have patience with me, I am pretty new to this stuff and I would really like to learn it.
Edit: Never mind I did some research on the web to figure it out, but still thanks for all the help guys!!
