I am not doing any gfx intensive work neither am I planning on playing the latest games at highest fps. However, my work is cpu intensive, which means that I need a strong proc. But I do play relatively old games, for which 5870 is i guess more than enough.

What you have is a 7 year old FSP made PSU with way too high ripple
There is no reason to keep something that old and bad in a new PC
Unless you want to get the magic blue smoke
Anyway my main point is almost every PSU you can buy is not made by the brand that sells it but by a OEM
So you cant go by brand as they dont make the units themselfs and often even the major brands has crappy units hiden under their name
Actually, if the situation is that bad, I should thank you for the eye opener. Till today, I havent experienced any issues with the PSU, but I dont want to take any chances. My intention was to ask which PSU to get. People have recommended me Corsair 650W or 750W.

As for Gaming, the 4770K doesn't need to be upgraded to the 4930K at all. Probably won't even notice the 2 extra cores exist while gaming tbh.
Yeah, the last thing on my mind right now is to finalize the proc. I am more leaning towards the 4930k since I need a strong cpu way more than i need a strong gpu.
