It's supposed to supply cleaner power, but in real world applications the difference is negligible.
Both would do the trick even if you were to upgrade your motherboard/CPU, as both can handle any system configuration (with the exception of maybe tri-SLI/triFire+).

Thats what i was thinking, glad to know ocz is still a decent brand lol. Thanks

I would love to but the power supply only craps out when i start to run anything super demanding of the video card, its a 600w and all i have laying around is a 450w, im sure that would probably do the same. My power supply says theres only one 12v rail and its only like 40amps so its probably not even getting that since its about 8 months old and has been had a constant 300w on it since the day it was put in, i read this psu doesn't last long with over 300w. Then 2 months ago it got this gtx560 ti and i think that was to much for it, specially when playing games like the Witcher 2, assassins creed, skyrim, and other high demanding games at hours a day, everyday.

I would stop gaming for now and get a new PSU. If you keep doing it, one day, it may die and might take something else with it ( mobo, gpu, cpu).

Also, just a suggestion since you said you have a 450w lying around, you can use it to power the 560ti alone. I'm sure you already know how to hook it up ( paperclip between green and black pins).

Ya i was going to give that a try but the amps on my extra PSU for the 12v line says only 20amp, this card will use 23, so i said forget it and just ordered this Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 750W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply
That should be perfect, i was surprised as hell to see how much power these gtx560's use. Untill it gets here im just not gaming that hard lol, i underclocked the GPU and it stopped shutting off so that'll work in the mean time

Diablotek? It'll send your machine straight to hell. Those things are trash. Glad you replaced it with something decent (and that rosewill Hive is very good for the money, a good unit) before the explosion killed your machine.
