Advice for Graphics Card upgrade

PerryT78
 Share

Hi all,

My current GPU-CPU setup in an ATI 5770 1GB with an AMD fx-6300 6 core.

I am looking to upgrade to a GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GPU. Would any bottle necking occur with the 1050 Ti and the fx-6300?

 

Also, my power supply has a total power of 450W and a peak power of 500W, is this psu fine for the upgrade?

Thanks

Cheap CPU + cheap GPU is a good combo.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

RX 570s are usually at a much better price and choice. Even if there's a CPU bottleneck because of that, RX 570 is just a faster card for a little bit more money.

Can I ask what games you'd be playing rather than giving the blanket "no it won't" statement?

I play CS:GO, WoW, League, but with this upgrade I want to start playing more demanding games like GTA and PUBG.

You may see some bottleneck with the 1050ti or an rx 570 but that's ok.  If you plan on upgrading your cpu, motherboard, ram sometime in the near future don't be afraid to get a better card now so that you can plug into your next rig.  Your psu wattage in general should be fine,  but you didn't mention what psu you have, not all 450w psu's are the same.

I think that is a lower quality psu but I am not sure.  If it is you may want to consider upgrading.   Its never wise to start upgrading components on top of a crappy psu. Hopefully someone will stop by and say if its good or crap.

its just a thermaltake litepower, its fine, its not a fancy psu but its fine, its not gonna blow up going from a 5770 to a 1050ti considering the 5770 is a 110-120w card anyway

lol, who said anything about it blowing up.

why do people presume every psu that isnt like an EVGA supernova 1000000+ diamond or whatever is a piece of crap

This wasn't suggested either.

i have run some hefty shit on some terrible power supplies, like 20$ straight from china "750w SUPERPOWER GAMING POWER SUPPLY" kind of things and never seen any issues

Following your logic anybody who builds a pc should just drop the dirtiest cheapest psu they can snag off of ebay in and it should be good to go.  lol nice advice.

ive got old seasonic s12's that have likely thousands of on/off cycles and still work fine

because just $40 can get you a PSU (e.g. Corsair CX450M (2015) ) safe enough to handle accidents? TT Litepower for example only has OCP, OPP and SCP, while CX450M has OVP, UVP and OTP on top of that.
