PSU ^

How good is it? how high of a graphics card can be supported (with overclocking) on that PSU? 
I am currently using a gtx 1070 sc. I have an rtx 2070 gaming z from msi as well. I have also used it. but it has had some issues thus i am returning it and getting another one send back to me.  

But im curious to how far i can go with that psu. in case you are wondering i am also using a ryzen 5 2600x overclocked to 4.1 on all cores on an msi b450 gaming pro carbon ac motherboard. 

Edit: 
Should have probably mentioned that i have had it for like 1.5 years already :P my bad

Lower Mid-Range.

Meaning something like GTX1060 or RX570, maybe 580.

 

But its old and Warranty expired. So you should look at a better PSU.

Money doesn't seem to be an isse, otherwise you wouldn't have an RTX2070...

Nothing to add...

 


Well, if you want to go cheaper, Xilence Performance A+ 530W or Performance X is an option.

but I have been using a gtx 1070 with it for like 1,5 years now. found no issues what so ever. 

Which PSU would be the best upgrade then? preferably one that will just let me switch the PSU and not the cables to save me some trouble with that hassle. :D
