Hello everyone .
Built a new pc recently. Still confused about some things I would be Very appreciating if someone could clear them for me.
-Okay, I have a CoolerMaster GX 650W as a PowerSupply.
-And an APC Back-UPS*RS 500VA 300W.
-Does the 300w on the UPS means that it only can handle 300w ? does that mean my PSU will only get 300w? Will that effect my pc performances ?
-Please know that my pc need more than 300w to run at it's "should be" performance.
-Intel i5-2500k (@stock speed)
-Seagate Barracuda 1tb harddrive
-Sony dvd burner
-no additional fans. no wireless peripherals...
You need a more powerfull UPS to run that PC. This is only if the power goes out, it should run it fine as a surge protector. But if the UPS loses wall power, your PC will not be very happy if it draws more than 300 watts, and with a 6870, it will.
