Go to solution Solved by CaffienatedBovine,

It sounds like you might be outgrowing your computer. It may be time for a new system entirely. :)

 

I know that's not what you were asking, just thought I'd mention it.

Hi there i need some help my machine is a dell stock really good one though its got one P.C.I.E slot for one graphics card its currently running on an 750ti witch is getting past so im thinking 970 its cheap for such power im am definitely going with it so my question is it recomends 500w but my machine runs on a 460w but it (I think) doesent use al that power the machine runs of 12gb ddr3 ram a i7 4gen 4790 and a 2tb hard drive and an optical drive so i don't know if it will works so yeah that's my question and if I have to upgrade my power supply will it work with the other dell components it is located in the top of the case so yeah help

I'd buy a new PSU just to be safe. You can get an 80+ Bronze 500-600w PSU from EVGA or Corsair for around $30, which is worth it to protect your investment.

it's ok but if you overclock do not overclock a lot just a little to be safe. But what is you power supply?

Your system will handle a 970. Though you may have to avoid any kind of overclocking. But you might as well get a new power supply first. One less thing to worry about.

I would go for an 80+ certified 500 watt or more psu just for peace of mind.

 

the 970 has a TDP of only 145 watts... unless overclocked. I would maybe go 550-600 watts (80+ certification is important). that will last you forever so its worth the investment.

Should have said 750ti vs 970. 750ti is way better cause it only consumes 60watts. 970 takes 145watts to run. Winner 750ti LOL.

are you a moron? a 970 is waaay better. like miles ahead... it has a higher corecount, higher frequency, wider memory bus, more vram, faster vram....

Just using the fanboy metric of lower power consumption as the defacto determining factor of superiority. I remember one time when a fanboy was trying to recommend a 750ti over an R9 280 because he though it was much better because of Power consumption/Performance LOL
