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 Worth upgrading to a gtx 970 from 670 FTW? - Forum Upgrading from XL2420T to XL2411Z - Forum Upgrading System Help - Forum Upgrading Graphics Card? - Forum Haswell-E worth upgrading from ivy-bridge? - 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.
