Hello.

got this PC about 2 years ago from my brother. I want to be able to use it for gaming, (like Witcher 3 and BF1) on high quality (nothing crazy, just to enjoy the game).

I realy don't know a lot about parts, but i read about it and the parts should be good except for the GPU which is crap.

 

HP Z220 CMT 400W 90% Efficient Chassis
 
Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 8M HT 4C GT2 CPU
 
8GB DDR3-1600 (2x4GB) nECC RAM
 
1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6G 1st HDD
 
NVIDIA Quadro K600 1GB 1st GFX Spl
 
16X SuperMulti DVDRW SATA 1st ODD

 

 

could you reccomend a new GPU instead of the K600?

 

would love to get a few options between 250-400$ (don't know how much it will cost where I live, so I need some options).

I thought about the GTX760, but the recommended power was 500W and i have 400

 

thanks!

PSU recommendations from GPU manufacturers are BS.

AMD RX470 is good choice and current PSU should be enough.

Actually what Drilling says is correct. for a GTX 760-960-1060 a good quality 400-500W is more than enough. However, keep in mind quality is key. Quality as in brand, and your +12v rail integrity/strength.
