Yeah, I'll definitely be needing a new PSU. Most of the video cards I'm lookin' at require at least 400 - 450 watts. When it comes to the space inside my case, there's not an abundance of room but there's enough to let a medium-sized card breathe well. I'm not too worried about size or cooling issues - Just as long as the card isn't bulky or an oven. When it comes to swapping out the motherboard and buying a cooling system, it would be cool, but I'm not looking to overclock or make a gaming PC, so I'll save purchasing those components until the day I build my own rig.
The PSU patonb suggested is very nice. Lots of cables for versatility, so if any other PSU doesn't catch my eye, I'll snag it.
The video card is the only thing I'm not settled on yet. I was searching around NewEgg the other day and came across the POWERCOLOR AX5770 1GBD5-H Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
, which seems to be an updated version of the POWERCOLOR AX5750 1GBD5-H Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
, which was suggested.
The 5770 looks like it has a better cooling system, and is slightly different than the 5750 in specs. Do you guys think that the 5770 is worth the extra $35?
