Gpu and Psu

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have around $200, maybe a little more to spend on my pc and would love to use it on a new graphics card for my sig rig. I may have to get a new psu as well since I'm only running the stock one at 300w and many graphics cards these days need a higher wattage. need some suggestions

According to your monitor, you're gaming at 1080p. GTX460 is still not adequate for maxing out any new games at that resolution. I say go for a 570 at least if you can afford it.

460gtx.

Crap power supply.

Pick up a Corsair CX430 or Antec Neo ECO 400C instead.

Or wait for them to stock up on the FSP Aurum 400.

460 is a strong card its only the 768 meg card but still fast.
its like my old 285 gtx, Or 1/2 as fast and 480 (my old card). still fast will be about 3 times faster then your 220, and dx 11 . with the psu(power ) @ 38 amps u got enough amps for cpu and gpu.

Corsair CX430 Not enough amps.
Antec Neo ECO 400C No amps again.

TR2 500W has 38 amps. needed for a 100 watt cpu and 24 amp, gpu.

the card in my pc now really has beautiful graphics and every game I have and play looks absolutely perfect on my monitor. I know it seems kind of silly to buy a new gpu if I feel this way but since I don't have that much to spend and most people suggest getting a new gpu first I seem to be going that route.

NO. you will need a stronger psu for gpu. 300 watt not going to cut it. you would have faster game play with higher end card but if u think 220 is fine, psu is a must before gpu. get the psu for the gpu.

I like evga, lifetime warranty if warranty is filled, just depends if you want better air cooler or that type. blow hot air out case or better cooler but dumps heat in case.
