Best upgrade. - Page 2

post #11 of 25
First let me preface this by saying I know very little about PSU and what yours can handle so listen to more informed people than me about your PSU.

But about GPUs if you really felt the need to upgrade then anywhere in the 560, 570 or 6950 range should be good, at 1080p any more than that probably would probably be heavily diminishing returns for you.

Eagle, since we're on the topic of PSUs should mine be okay with my current system upgrading to a 560?

you are more then fine the fatal1ty's aren't overrated power supplies and doesn't go out of spec either. Theu ltra unless it's an X3 has a good chance of being overrated and having many other issues.

Thanks for the quick answer. I do plan on making posting a thread in the PSU section once I nail down what exact GPU I'm shooting for before I buy but I know I'm not way off thinking a 560 or 6950 should be okay.

More then fine, even a 580 or a 570 will run on it.

Oh sweet, I was also kinda considering a 570 but it's kinda stretching the GPU budget at that point because I would want to put an AXP on it. Again thanks for the info.

When you're looking at whether or not your psu can handle a video card you need to compare the amps on the +12v rail with the graphics card requirement. And keep in mind that, as stated before, some manufacturers overrate their psu's

Doesn't stop them from lying how many amps are on the 12v rail either. Ultra doesn't make good psus though, not in overall though they've had a few decent ones.
