My Corsair RM650 PSU just died, and I dont want to be without my tower for the multiple weeks it will take for the RMA.
As such, I decided to take advantage of this situation and kill 2 (maybe even 3) birds with one stone, by upgrading my PC.
[I plan on Buying a new PSU/GPU with amazon prime shipping so it gets here quickly, then I will sell a friend both my GPU and the PSU I get from the RMA.]
My current build is:
MOBO: Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H CPU: I7-4790 GPU: EVGA 780 Classified RAM: 2x 8GB DDR3 (16GB) PSU: Corsair RM650 Case: Fractal Design Define R5
I'm looking to get a new GPU and PSU.
My current GPU isn't enough for me, and since I'm also looking for a new monitor, I know it won't be able to handle the games I play at a higher res and frame rate.
I am looking at a single, high range card such as the Zotac 980ti Amp! Extreme, and was looking for opinions and other options.
Secondly, I cannot decide what PSU to get for my system now, I thought i would need ~750W, but all the calculators I'm using keep recommending 400W PSUs. As such i would like some help deciding on which PSU to get, I'll be buying a new one regardless, due to both impatience and having promised the RMA'd one to my friend.
Any and all Comments/Help appreciated, Thank you!
