So I just ordered a GTX 570, now I have to look into upgrading my power supply. I don't need above 600w, but I'm having a hard time finding which PSU will for sure fit in my case and provide the correct cables for the GTX 570. Any help is appreciated.

Yes I'm in the US. Yeah I'm good on what power I need, mainly I just don't know what PSU will definitely fit in my 8300's case. I ordered an XFX 650 from Newegg, but couldn't find any info to confirm that it would fit. Gonna just try it out. I passed Corsair over because I saw a lot of bad reviews about them kicking the bucket less than a month in.

Haha, this is my third. I've always gotten several years out of them with upgrades.

Cool. Well I'm not nearly as "in the loop" as I used to be with the computer tech. I got taken with the GTX 545 that I upgraded to with the 8300. My own fault.

Very cool. Can't wait to try it out. Diablo 3 isn't that intense on graphic requirements, but the 545 didn't meet recommended and it was a little slow, so it'll be my first test for the 570.

Are you asking two different things there? The 570 is the cheaper one with 1280 RAM
