  1. Who told you it's 10 years old? In my country it was being sold even in 2014 (from webshop with warranty etc.). There's no need to be upset. I'd rather f up this system than buying a brand new quality PSU. This config is worthless there's not that much to lose, thanks for help and all, but I'm not gonna act like it's 100% that my PC will die in 1 minute (even if it was working more than fine for years) just because someone said so. I understand there's a risk but I won't by PSU because it would worth more than the other parts of my PC combined (if I'd choose to buy PSU instead of GPU) and also I couldn't use the PC at all without any GPU.
  2. Thanks for the quick answers, I'm not looking to buy a PSU right now cause I can't afford it. I think I'll buy a cheaper VGA then.
  3. I have an fx-6300 and I'm looking for an R9 380 (any of them with 4gb) and I wonder if my PSU will handle it. It's a Cooler Master Silent Pro M500 with Bronze certification. My system is like 2 years old now.
  4. I actually didn't know that. I was thinking efficiency would make that 500W become to 425W, good to know I was wrong because now I know my PSU should handle the config. Thanks for the help
  5. My PC Case has only 3 fans so yeah, you should be right. I'm just being unsure because even if my PSU specs say "85% efficiency usually" it's still only 80 plus, not even bronze, brings me a lot of insecurity.
  6. Thanks for the answer and sorry for the bad topic. Meanwhile I tried to do my own research on power consumption and I found out that cpu+vga would eat 360W max on high load, other components don't use more than 10W each, but all added up are close to the edge.
  7. FX-6300 with no OC DeepCool Gammaxx 200T 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B) SEAGATE Desktop SSHD 1TB ST1000DX001 Cooler Master N200 case I'd like to buy an R9 280 or R9 280x, but I'm not sure if my PSU can handle it. My PSU is a Cooler Master Silent Pro 500w and by the numbers its efficiency is 85%. I read about similar configs with the same questions and I have mixed feelings, so I want to hear people's opinion about my config. I would be fine even if I had to underclock it a little bit (3-4% max) since I wanna protect the card from overheating anyways. (my previous r9 270x died of overheating with minimal OC) edit: I'm not looking for a specific r9 280/ r9 280x tho
