Basically, i have a fairly old gaming rig. I dont want to put the money into upgrading the whole thing, so im hoping to just buy a new graphics card that will work with the system as is. It has a Intel Quad Core 9550 @2.8ghz 12mb cache & 8gb of DDR2 800mhz RAM, Not the latest and greatest but it still handles itself even by todays standards. Now the graphics card i want to buy and use with the system is a R9 380 4gb. More specific details with this newegg Item#: N82E16814127878.
Also, i got forgot to note that my psu is around 450-480w.. ( have to go back and check but im pretty sure thats the range)
Will i need a psu with more wattage?
So what do you all think? im not willing to upgrade for the time being, and im hoping this gpu will be compatible with my cpu, with no bottlenecking or anything of the nature.
Thanks for hearing me out, much appreciated.
