Just a quick question I just upgraded my PSU from a Dynex 520W to a Thermaltake 600W store bought from BestBuy. I will include my system details below but I installed this new PSU as I ordered a new GPU and it's in the mail but today when I installed the new PSU I actually noticed a DROP in FPS in one of the games I was playing (Napoleon Total War). Now before it was running smooth as silk and when I added the new PSU I changed no settings and the FPS took a drop and there is noticable lag in battles and throughout the game. Any ideas?
CPU: AMD Phenom IIx4 965 (Deneb) @ 3.4
GPU: Nvidia GTX 550 Ti
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600W
MOBO: CG1330 ASUS (Stock)
Just swapped the Dynex 520 back in and so far I think my problem has been solved. Using the same settings on Napoleon the battles run about as smooth as they did before. I understand that I shouldn't skimp when it comes to buying PSUs but Dynex isn't exactly top of the line either and it's pretty sad that a brand new Thermaltake 600 performs like this. Thanks again guys.
