  1. If it is within your budget, better get the gtx 560. But AMD have better alternatives to these price ranges. Are you willing to consider say a 6870 which is at $139.99 after rebate?

    Just to make sure that your 600W PSU is fine for your graphics card option, please let us know the brand & model.

    psu brand is axle
    i really like the gtx 560.i know it's gonna bottleneck too.i just want to know due to bottlenecking will there be any problem in running a game?
  3. No. Despite its age, the E7400 is still a great gaming processor except for a few games which can take advantage of more than 2 cores. So the 560Ti will not cause it to bottleneck specially at higher resolution where the strain is more on the graphics card than the processor.

    See this bench which is for the E7200 (unfortunately no E7400 in dropdown menu) which shows the E7200 can pull up to 66pfs in Crysis Warhead.

    Here's the bench for the GTX 560 which shows crysis warhead at 35-48fps over the same 1680x1050 resolution:

    Never heard of it. Is that the one on this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/AXLE-Luxury-600W-Tornado-internal/dp/B0029W3KTU
    or
    http://axle3d.en.alibaba.com/product/118761711-103191464/AXLE_600W_Tonardo_Power_Supply.html

    If yes, it does have enough PCIe connector but not sure about the +12V. One site mention 14A (too low!) while the other site 2x18A (may work but not too much comfort from me). The Amperes are put on the wrong voltages. Even a corsair CX430 430W PSU can supply more ampere than this PSU at 12V.
    If you have it long in your PC without any problem, I guess it will work but not much confidence because of the conflicting specs claimed on the different sites. But if you can take the a picture of the PSU label showing the amperes capacity in each voltage, then we can say for sure.
  5. i know.my psu is not a good one.soon i'll be getting a cosair psu.
    i was only worried about bottlenecking.thanks for the reply
