I agree with the sentiments to wait if doing a new build. Possibly look into a laptop if you dont already have one.

However, ideally with your current setup you could breathe another 2-4 years of life into that rig pretty easily with a power supply and video card upgrade and have plenty left over to start college with some funds in your account. So I side with those sentiments the most!

I must agree with everyone else. Buy a new card but leave it at that. And well done for getting to your chosen uni. Good luck and study hard it will pay off later in life. All the best from a bum.(UNEMPLOYED BUM!)
