I'm buying a new motherboard and cpu for my computer as well as adding extra ram and I need to know if my current PSU will be able to handle the new equipment however I don't currently know how to tell how many watts my PSU runs on.
Once I find that out I also need to know how to tell if the PSU I have is capable of running the new equipment.
EDIT: Sorry for posting this one up, I didn't read the stickied section up the top before I posted.
Yeah, I'll be doing lots of gaming. I eventually intent to upgrade the GPU later on to something with maybe double the power. So I would think going for a PSU that is more than capable of handling what I'll be running at first would be a smart move.
Just on a side note, the NVIDIA GT 520 is apparently more than enough according to the requirements you need to meet in order to play the game smoothly. The minimum requirements in terms of your gpu is way lower, but at that stage its barely playable.
No, I meant that on PlanetSide 2's website, they state that they require at least a NVIDIA GT 500 in order to play the game smoothly. I have a GT 520... So I assumed I was in the clear. I still will be upgrading so the 550W Xfx Pro Core will probably end up just right!
Besides, two people are saying the same thing in terms of wattage, so it must be right! Thanks guys!
