Need help about getting a new PSU.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Short story short, i upgraded my GPU from a gtx 960 to gtx 1660 S. Essentially my PSU had a 6pin cable for my old GPU so when i got my new GPU i bought a 6pin-8pin converter cable thingy. Since upgrading my GPU, my gaming performance has actually decreased & on fortnite ive been getting black flickering and graphical errors. I put a post in reddit & someone was certain this was all due to my power supply & recommended me upgrading one. If anyone could comment on this, that would be a massive help. Thanks

My hardware:

CPU - I7 4790K

GPU - GTX 1660 S

Drives - 1 x 931GB HD, 1 x 111GB SSD

PSU - Pulse PPS-750BR (750W, 240V)

budget ? 

you can always check the list as that will be the best for you 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying

750w is major overkill for a 4790K and a 1660S.  550w would be plenty.

Look for something like a cx550 or a cx650
