Hi everyone this is my first thread in this site so i apologize for any bad info.
I am interested in upgrading my gpu,currently i have sapphire 6770 and initially i was interested in getting the nvidia 750ti (2gb) because my psu is only 500 watt 80% efficient and the gtx requires only 60 watt.I can also buy the AMD R9 270X(2gb) because there are respectable differences in benchmarks but i dont know if my psu is enough as the 270x requires a lot of power.I cant buy a new psu as well because my budget is tight.On one hand the 750 ti is based on the brand new maxwell architecture and is a safe choise for my pc cause of the power problem,on the other hand the 270X gives an average of ~15 more fps from 750 on high settings but i dont know if my psu can handle it.Also i found that the 270 requires less power than the 270x and the difference in fps is about 5-8 fps.So what want to know is which gpu should i pick for my specific rig having in my mind that my psu kind of sucks?
