Hey guys, built a pretty basic build last year when my tax refund came in and over the last few months i've found that a lot of the newer games coming out have been giving me a hard time mainly because my video card isn't really up to snuff. i was wondering if anyone could give me any advice for a decent upgrade, something i won't really have to worry about for at least the next year and a half. here are my current specs:
if it's something that's going to last me a decent amount of time i wouldn't mind spending between 400-500, but i was really thinking somewhere between 200-400 max --- XBL,PSN,Origin,and Steam ids are all: Darlordvader feel free to add me!
Check your power supply before upgrading your GPU. The 640 specs recommend a 300W-350W power supply depending on the model. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt640/specifications
AMD's site either didn't list specifics or I couldn't find them, but Sapphire's site recommends a 750W supply. http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1227&pid=2044&psn=&lid=1&leg=0#
i'm using a 520 watt power supply at the moment, when i built my rig i figured i may need something strong for upgrading in the future --- XBL,PSN,Origin,and Steam ids are all: Darlordvader feel free to add me!
i've been thinking about it a bit, would an nvidia gtx 770 be supported by my current build or would i have to upgrade other things as well? off the top of my head i think the card will need a stronger psu, about a 600 watt maybe? --- XBL,PSN,Origin,and Steam ids are all: Darlordvader feel free to add me!
