    GPU upgrade

    Im about to upgrade my GPU, but i need to be sure if my PSU of 550W can handle it

    Atm i have a regular gtx 650


    The gtx 760
    GeForce GTX 760 | Specifications | GeForce
    The gtx 650
    Specifications | GeForce

    Or are there any better GPU's within the same price range which my PSU can handle.

    And if i eventually get the GTX 760 will my PC bottleneck?

    Specs atm :

    AMD Athlon II X4 945 @3Ghz non OC
    GTX 650 1GB DDR5
    8GB ram Elixer 1666Mhz
    Mobo: Asrock AM3 i think.

    What PSU do you have? But it should handle it.

    The 760 is much better, I would suggest the 660 or the 670 but I don't know if your PSU can run it

    I think the 660 will rock on your PSU, but I think you should get a 600W one just to be safe

    They are both nearly identical, the difference is that the 760 has more CUDA cores, a slightly higher memory interface width and a higher memory bandwidth ( GB /s ), the problem is that the 760 is a bit more expensive
