Buying Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I'm currently using an ATI 5850 and I'm getting sick of it's and ATI/AMD's problems with drivers and stuttering and dual monitor issues. So I want to buy a Nvidia GTX 560 TI. My question however is my power supply still enough? Specifications Below and Thanks for the coming help since I'm new to the Green Team (anything recent anyways).

Core i7 950
Sabertooth X58 Mobo
6GB of DDR3 RAM
Tech NPS 750w Power Supply

The wattage and amp requirements will meet.... great, you will be fine. Go ahead smile.gif buy the gtx560..... what brand are you considering? I have my eyes on the asus dcu II normal version. One can buy it and easily oc it to the 900mhz version. The msi twinfrozr seems nice too.

definitely enough. Just wondering though, are you sure that moving to nvidia will resolve those driver issues? My 470 SLI config was plagued with driver issues when I had three screens attached. So I removed the second card and along with it, the third screen. That resolved my issue, but I'm not sure it will for you. Investigate that before you make the jump.

Yes, I only run 2 screens and it's a common issue with the card and the drivers. ATI/AMD has known it's a problem for a long amount of time they just haven't fixed it. Not to mention the card has it's own problems.
