I'm looking for a new card to get myself up to PS4/XBone game standards, but I'm on a budget, and don't really want to go over £200 without a good reason.
I think most of my box is up to speed; 3.40 Ghz i7 CPU (which I'm not changing) and 25gig of RAM, but my card's a GeForce 660 and it's been dragging me down on games that haven't had last-gen releases. AC:Unity is jumping up and down on it at the moment, and while I know it's not had the greatest optimization, I doubt that DA: Inquisition and Arkham Knight are going to be much kinder to it.
I'm thinking of getting this: Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II
. Decent reviews, and the price is about where I want it. (If anyone has other suggestions, please let me know)
My main question is about PSUs. I checked inside my PC, and it's got the connectors I need (two six-pin, plus the adaptor to 8-pin that comes with the card), but it's a 430w PSU.
The reading I've done on the card suggests a 550w PSU. Is it likely to screw my computer up if I try to use my existing PSU, or do I need to budget for a new one?
And if it's the latter, any suggestions? I'd like something quiet if possible, but I'm worried that might push me too far past my leftover £50 budget.
