I'll soon be upgrading my graphics card from a HD 6670 to a 1GB XFX ATI Radeon HD6950 so I'll be needing to upgrade my power supply as well. After looking around, I'm currently considering getting an Antec EA-500 500W Earthwatts PSU but I'd rather be safe and get some advice before I buy it.
I won't be overclocking the graphics card and the only overclocking on my PC is an automatic overclocking through OC Genie. I'll be using it for gaming (Planetside 2, Borderlands 2, etc) at 1920x1080 resolution on a single monitor.
My current specs are:
AMD FX-6100 3.6GHz Six Core CPU (Overclocked from 3.3GHz)
MSI 760GM-p21 fx motherboard
16GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM
120GB OCZ Solid 3 SSD (OS boot drive)
1TB SATA II 7200RPM HDD
ATI Radeon HD 6670 2GB
CIT ATX 450w PSU
If you have any other recommendations or advice for a good PSU then that would be brilliant. Thanks in advance.
If you can wait for OCZ ZS series units to become more readily available in the UK again - don't know when this will happen though - then I'd suggest doing so. If not then there's not much wrong with the XFX ProSeries 550W Core Edition.
