If you're going to upgrade your GPU then you will probably need a better PSU unless your PSU has 6 and 8 pin connectors. If you're on an OEM PSU then I doubt you will have options to connect a GPU.


If you're going from basically nothing to a dedicated GPU, then what about getting a GTX 570 and a new PSU? 



The Radeon 580 requires a 500 W PSU, although I've heard that they're just being extra cautious. Still, you need a good PSU to run dedicated graphics.
