The only method I know is if you hear a high pitched noise coming from the PSU which would indicate a bearing problem and imminent failure.


It could just be coil whine, which is annoying but 100% harmless!


Possibly. I've only heard it twice in my life and my PSU always failed a few days later.

Thanks guys but I don't experience any problems right now when im running an integrated. I also tried to use my dad's gpu which is a 9600 GSO and after a day, the gpu died also. Granted it died long ago and just miraculously works again. I don't know if the PSU killed it(Is it even possible) or I broke it because I moved it a lot lol.

I'm just afraid it might kill my new card if I don't diagnose it now. :(

Sounds like blown capacitors then!

The 4GB RAM would hold you back a lot more then a 760 would.

I have an MSI 760 (with 8GB RAM) and can run almost everything maxed 1080/60. Obviously not the ridiculous benchmarkers like Crysis, but those are rare exceptions and even then I can run them near enough to maxed that I can hardly tell the difference unless I take a magnifying glass to still screenshots (that is, while actually playing I'm missing out on completely unnoticeable levels of detail).

For single 1080p monitor set-ups I definitely recommend just sticking with a 760, I don't really think truly maxing 100% of games over 99.9% of them is worth an extra $100+.

Last question: Is my xfx 650w xtreme edition 80PLUS bronze enough for a 770/760?


Yes.
