Hello everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my power supply so I can upgrade my graphics card. The stock power supply I have is 385 watts, in this stock HP computer i got for cheap over a year ago. When I first got it I upgraded it's processor from AMD A series A4-3420 / 2.8 GHz (Dual Core) to AMD A8-3870 / 3.0 GHz (Quad Core) which i got for 50$ brand new (love having connections ^_^). When I first got the PC almost a year ago I put a AMD Radeon HD 6670 in it since I was mainly playing WoW at the time and it played flawlessly at max settings on 1920x1080. Now after running the game during Phase 3 and the new benchmark I scored in the 6k range on Standard settings. I tried it on High and got a little over 4000 (4400 range with a few tweaks) and Max settings I got a little less than 3k. If I could get it to about the 7k+ range on High settings I'd be ecstatic. I don't notice a massive difference from High to Max settings on the systems a few friends of mine have showed me so that I'm not too worried about. In most games that I play High settings is my only goal, as Max settings tend to look....idk how to explain but i'll just say "meh" in an increase comparison.
Now for my specs:
Windows 7 SP1 (64-bit of course xD)
AMD A8-3870 (3.0GHz)
4GB of RAM (will probably upgrade this to 8GB shortly after upgrading everything else; corsair seems like a good brand plus it reminds me of ffxi <_>)
AMD Radeon HD 6670 (Looking to upgrade, AMD or Nvidia either is fine dont want to go too far over 100$ if possible)
385w Power supply (Also looking to upgrade to 500w most likely)
Willing to spend a max combined total of about 150-200$ for Graphics card + Power supply. The best bang for the buck is my motto here as this will probably be the main (possibly only) pc game i play for a long time that would need a decent amount of pc power. Hopefully if I need anything with more power in the future I'll probably save up for a custom built (ibuypower/cyberpowerpc/etc.)
Thanks in advance!
