Upgrading from 460 to 470, can psu be a bottleneck? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If that PSU is several years old then that's even more reason to upgrade. They do degrade over time, and you'd be cutting it close even if it was brand new,

I have a 570 evga, I think thats the best choice. If you are going to upgrade go ahead with the 5 series. They are very good cards.
