What is Bottlenecking My Buddy's new R9 270? - Page 3

post #21 of 50
You should try the corsair 600w I love corsair PSUs never had a problem with them hopefully some people feel the same

but ill have to agree that AMD is got to be the bottleneck more then the powersupply
post #22 of 50

Which Corsair 600W? If you're going to recommend PSUs, it's good to know the exact model because there can be huge differences between two different models.

 

Also, with PSUs, it's not all about brand names - as I just alluded to. Within one brand, you can find extremely crappy PSUs and you can find very high-end ones and everything in between. It's important to be careful.

That is in all honesty a very bad PSU, especially for the money. Here are a few better choices.
XFX XTR 550w
Rosewill CAPSTONE-550
SeaSonic G 550
Cooler Master VS 550w

The GS600 is a mediocre PSU and is usually pretty overpriced for what you actually get.

These PSUs are significantly better.

Yea I agree they are expensive I just choose them cause I've never had a problem with them and they last a long time and have high amperage on the 12v rail

Hey guys, thanks for all the help. I'm the buddy Clawlan was talking about. I'm looking around and trying to find something local I can just go and pick up in store (we have a Frys here in GA). So far all I have been able to find in the same vein is this: http://www.frys.com/product/6708355

I was hoping you all had some thoughts on this. It's in stock and I'm super impatient. (Also Clawlan is very insistent that we play tonight lol.) Anyway thanks again for all the help! thumb.gif

The 520W Antec High Current Gamer is another good option and it's only $80 at Fry's:

Your rig will never pull enough to even begin to make this PSU warm. Your power draw is very low.

So as it turns out the issue was in fact the psu. Thanks for the recommendation Twocables I actually ended up finding the 620 watt version for $79. I'm still having problems running DX11 games without problems however. For instance Crysis 3 at any setting from very low to ultra chugs when there is foliage present. I.E. the opening level just inside the Liberty Dome, I'm assuming that my CPU may be the culprit. However that is an upgrade for another day. Being on a 4 year old AM3 board finding decently priced chips with more than two cores is a bit daunting. Any one have any ideas what might be causing DX11 games to either chug or severely underscan on the display? If this is a post for another thread I would be happy to move it and or repost in another forum. Oh and if it makes any difference I'm using the 14.01 drivers.

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable then me will see this soon, but I do know that Crysis 3 is very CPU dependent so I think you may be right about your CPU causing the chugging, not sure about other games though depends what they are and if they were doing it before you upgraded the GPU.

The only other thing I can suggest is did you do a complete safe mode reinstall of your Graphics drivers when you put in the new GPU using Driversweeper/Driver Fusion or DDU? I had a Radeon card before and if you didn't do this the new drivers would sometimes not work properly.

I haven't personally used DDU but I've seen many people recommend it, I use Driver Fusion myself as I am more familiar with it, but it does involve manually deleting driver files from your Windows folder if you don't pay for the premium version, if you're not happy with doing this maybe just use DDU.
