Upgrading my PC, Need advice with a new PSU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First of all, hi to everyone!

I'm new posting here but i've lurking this forum for a while .

I'd like to upgrade my actual computer, since i feel like it's starting to get old .

This is my actual rig (sorry for my english, i'm from Spain >_<):

CPU: i7@2,67Ghz (I7 920, non-OC) with a stock Cooler
RAM: 2x4Gb Kingston HyperX
Video Card: AMD HD 6970 (Stock, non-OC)
Motherboard: ASUS P6T SE
PSU: LC-POWER LC-8700 - http://www.conrad-electronic.co.uk/c...roduct/972438/
2 HDD, and 4 fans in the case.

I would like to upgrade my CPU and my motherboard to a FX-8350 and a Sabertooth Mobo.

My biggest concern if that PSU will hold the upgrade.

What do you think? Should i also upgrade my PSU?

Thanks in advance guys!
