I suggest upgrading the power supply before doing anything else. m 0 l cor33y December 12, 2012 5:03:09 PM ok thanks m 0 l Related resources Upgrading stock gt 630 to a gtx 760(+ is a 500W psu enough for gtx 760)? - Forum Upgrading budget gaming pc - Forum Upgrading looking to spend £600 to £700 - Forum Upgrading from Ati Saphire 6790 1gb - Forum Help upgrading motherboard - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'd recommend getting a 520 or a 550W, just to be sure. The PSU is the last thing you would want to cheap out on.
