Default Re: Upgrading pc

I think there is a little confusion. The GTX750TI uses a very modest amount of power while a 750W PS is a good amount of power on a modern PC. What PP was saying is the name of the Video card (750TI) has nothing at all to do with the power required for the PC it's just the model name of the card, And using a 750w PS will not do any harm to a pc, The PC only uses the power needed and that's all it gets, BUT if you have a lower powered PS like a 350w PS and your system needs more then your out of luck. So having a higher watt PS means IF you need that much power then it will be there when needed but won't use it if not called for. Hope this clears it up a little for you.

What you had linked is a 600w budget PSU. You don't need 750w, or even 600w at this point. A CX500 would be fine.

Then get a quality unit rather than a budget unit. You can take this thread as an example.

The Seasonic S1211 520w would be a better bet.

Because it's cheaper than the other two. SC, FTW, blah blah are all factory overclocked cards meaning you're being charged for the same thing.
