CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4GHz
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8GB
PSU: BFG 250w
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT
Monitor- 2x22" Sonic View (2 VGA's ports on GPU)
OS: Win 10 pro
Storage: 1x 256GB SSD and 1x 500GB HDD
Case: Inwin Griffin Midi Tower Mesh Computer Gaming Case with 22cm Fan (Not sure if I can post a link)
After upgrading my storage to an SSD with a fresh install of Win 10, I wanted to check if my driver issues were fixed (kept getting NVIDIA driver errors after loading from sleep mode. BSOD would appear and then the computer would restart back to normal...only happens whenever I boot it from sleep mode)
I now want to look into upgrading the GPU (NVIDIA or AMD?) and did a bit of a look around, however, I would really appreciate if you guys could suggest what type of graphics card would be suitable based on my spec or what other upgrades should I do prior to getting a suitable graphics card. Ideally looking for a medium ranged budget GPU but there's so many out there.
I think I may need to upgrade the PSU too, to compensate for the storage upgrade that's already been done and for a GPU upgrade. 500W?
