As I have now cancelled my order for a new AMD 380X and decided that AMD can now stick it I've decided to be smarter instead of wasting all the money I have to use which is roughly £200 max I am all set to go for a new graphics card AND a brand new PSU to help power it. The current PSU I have is a generic 500W that I honestly should have replaced long ago but as it's done the job so far I stuck with it.
So far I have two choices in mind for the new hardware...Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB GDDR5
(£159.99)http://www.ebuyer.com/722277-gigabyte-g ... n960oc-4gd
The cards size is just perfect as I have limited space around my PCI-E slot, it's 4GB which is a must due to owning a 2Gb card right now that struggles in most new games due to the limited vram. The best thing is though is that it only requires one 6 pin connector just like my current card. EVGA 500W Fully Wired 80+ Bronze Power Supply
(£44 inc vat)http://www.ebuyer.com/546583-evga-500w- ... b1-0500-kr
Even though it's only 500W like my current bog standard one I'm hoping that buying an actual brand name will make a big difference plus it comes with every kind of wire you could possibly need already attached and ready to go. Something I'm not sure a lot of other PSU's have.
What do you guys think? Moving from a 2GB R9 270 none X version and a generic PSU to those two? Thanks guys.
edit: Ok I'm confused as to if or not the GTX 960 requires one six pin or a six pin and an eight pin power connector. The picture on the website indicates it's just a single 6 pin...http://img.ebyrcdn.net/695962-722277-800.jpg
Her face is tired. Leave her be ffs.
