  1. I currently use the i7 2600k with 16gb of RAM and an Nvidia 550 TI I also have 3 hard drives and my system is fine wit h a 550w PSU. assuming it's a reliable manufacturer you will be fine. The i7 is only 95 watts. What model is the GPU you intend to use?


  2. I don't remember the about my video card model, it is 2.5 yrs old regular lowprofile DDR3 CARD. Normal my usage is not gaming purpose... Do I still have a good GPU.. if so could you suggest any one please?
  3. If you aren't going to do anything that would justify spending money on a new graphics card like image design / gaming then I would recommend keeping what you have as the i7 2600k is a Sandy Bridge CPU so it can deal with graphics pretty well alone as it uses Intel HD Graphics 3000.

    But if you did feel like upgrading the GPU just to keep everything new I would suggest this:


    Because it can run all the lastest games I have on the highest settings and is relatively cheap at £90
