  1. Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll have a look around and most likely just go for the GTX 1060 or RX 480.
  2. Well I'm happy with gaming at 1080p 60fps, so nothing overkill. looking for something that will work well with my CPU without causing any bottlenecks. And I think my PSU only has 2 6pin PCI connectors
  3. So basically I would get better value for money in the long run getting a GTX 1060 or RX 480, over the 750ti? Even though some of the games I'm playing atm aren't the most demanding.
  4. So i'm wanting to start doing some more gaming on my prebuilt PC which I bought pretty cheap awhile ago, it has a custom mid tower case and can be easily upgraded. Current specs are, an i5 4460, 8gb RAM and only a 400w PSU with no GPU at all. But I can't decide if I should just get a 750ti to start out gaming on, which I can get brand new for $190 where I live, or get a 1060 for about $600, which is still within my budget, but I'm not sure if it would be worth it for the games I will be playing at the moment, mainly less demanding games like CS:GO, Mobas, Overwatch. That could change later on though. So would it be worth spending a bit more to have a pretty decent gaming rig, capable of playing most games at 1080p 60fps, or just buy something suitable for what I'll be playing right now. There's also the option of buying a 970 for just over $500 but they're going out of stock pretty quick, and I can't find a non reference RX 480 anywhere at all. Sorry for rambling, just a bit new to PC gaming, and I'm really tired of playing games on integrated graphics lol.
  5. Thanks. I'll have a look around and see what the best option is in NZ.
  6. Oh ok, just something that would work well with a 1080p build and possibly allow for future upgrading, not planning on doing any overclocking, watercooling, SLI/CF etc. So nothing too overkill.
  7. Any recommendations on a decent PSU if I were to look at upgrading?
  8. Looking at buying an RX 480 hopefully sometime soon. Current specs. i5 4460 CPU, 8gb 1600mhz DDR3 RAM, h81m-plus Motherboard, No GPU atm. But the PSU is only 400w, this exact one here http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=PSUZAL1400. Will it be enough for a 480? or should I look at upgrading it.
  9. Thanks for the fast replies. I'll wait for the RX 480, and hopefully my PSU is enough if I end up getting one.
  10. Hey, currently I'm just running HD 4600 integrated graphics and I'm wanting to start gaming more on my PC. Current specs are i5 4460, 8GB DDR3, and a 400w PSU. Wanting to run lower end games maxed out at 1080p such as CSGO, as well as some more demanding titles on pretty good settings at 1080p 60fps, Fallout 4, Doom, Witcher 3, GTA 5, Bf1 when it comes out. Was looking at getting a GTX 970, but now with the 1070 releasing It might not be such a good idea. (Although it's still pretty expensive atm) Also looking for a PSU that will be able to handle any high end GPU, if I ever decide to upgrade again in a couple years.
  11. Not planning on overclocking anything yet, just trying to get a steady 60fps on most games. So you don't think a 400W PSU is appropriate for a 970?
  12. Is it just some Pci-e cables I should be looking for? Because I think it's got a couple of those not connected to anything. And ok that's great to know.
  13. So I was planning hopefully sometime soon to add a GPU to my current PC, as right now I'm just using integrated graphics. I'm still pretty new to PC upgrading, currently just using a prebuild with the following specs. Intel core i5 4460, 8GB RAM, H81m-plus motherboard, is this alright? I've heard the i5 4460 shouldn't have any problems with bottlenecking a GTX 960 or 970. But what I'm mainly concerned about is my PSU, which is a 400W ZALMAN ZM400-GVN. Would this be enough to power a GTX 960 or 970 without too much trouble, hopefully running most games on high settings at 1080p 60FPS?
  14. From what I can see on the site of the shop I'm going to tomorrow, they're only selling the Chroma DeathAdder. Which is about $15 more than the G502 Core non RGB.
  15. That's fine. Honestly I'm leaning towards the DeathAdder at this point, just really like the overall design of it and everything, but I'll have a proper look in store tomorrow. Also, have you ran into any issues with anything relating to the scroll wheel? Obviously your model is slightly older than the one i'm looking at buying, but just thought i'd ask anyway.
