    Power Supply Help pls

    Yo, just was about to buy a 750Ti Graphics card and it said it required a 400wat power supply, i blindly looked on some forum of my pc specs and allegedly had 500wat so i was like mmkay,

    turns out i cracked it open and only got a 350 wat power supply, how do i go by getting a bigger power supply, how much are they and do i gotta find one dependant on my pc? im guessing a power supply is basically just a transformer so the pc doesn't explode

    where or what should i look into

    or is there a graphics card equivilant to a 750ti that could do the job?

    You can buy one from PC Case Gear ( Website: http://www.pccasegear.com (It's an Australian website)). You don't need the one I'm going to recommend you as a 400 watt power supply will do the job, but this will give you room to upgrade a little in the future or add more Hard drives/Solid state drives.

    My recommendation: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=30963

    EDIT: Also what you're looking for also depends on the budget you have so, it will always helps us to know your budget so we can provide the best possible support.

    Well NVIDIA reccommends 400w but a lot of their cards can run on much less wattage than actually stated.

    Here's another one that should suffice: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=22422

    oh and also what is the difference

    http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_535&prod ucts_id=22422

    http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=22271 &cPath=354

    one gives out 650wat the other 430wat, is it worth paying the extra $5

    Cooler Master g550m will be good and can handle a future upgrade in either CPU or GPU(ig it's not too extreme of an upgrade of course)
