Hi everyone, I posted this in the power supply section but got no response.
I'm just curious if I can replace the current 255W PSU in my Dell Optiplex 960 Mini Tower with a regular ATX power supply from NewEgg. I want to make a "FrankenRig" by installing a better power supply (~450W-500W) and about a GTX 560 or so for some better gaming performance.
Thank you for your time.
The NewEgg PSU calculator says that if I run a 7750, I'll only need a 270 W PSU. The Dell website says that my PSU is ~80% efficient. Will I be okay if I just go with the 7750? I forgot that the Radeons tend to be more energy efficient when I wrote the first two posts.
