Can my psu run a R9 270X ?(PC Power&Cooling S61EPS )
My psu is 6 years old......
Well, it's a good brand with 5 yr warranty so... I would say yes, sure. The 270x will not ask much of it.
It'll run a 270X without a problem. I'd push for a 280X or something though, coming from that 6870. Especially if you plan on keeping it awhile.
Try to reach for a 280x, that would be an real upgrade.
agree^...but then the question is/ Can my 6year old PSU run a 280x board...Thanks Guy's....
Note: airbud lives on a budget...(I'm a penny pincher).....
Should be ok. Or if you want to get something between the 270x and 280x power draw wise, look at 7950. I've seen them dirt cheap.
you could grab this and get the 480 I offered you for $20 shipping, just giving you another option
This^ is why I love you Guy's/Guru3D......Best forum on the net.....
don't laugh now, but how about this? http://www.scan.co.uk/products/6gb-...ffers344&utm_source=scanshot&utm_medium=email
on a more serious note, I went from hd 6870 to gtx 480 and it was a pretty decent upgrade. Worth considering
Will handle a 280x fine, im running an overclocked 7970 on 550w.
Yeah go 280x man, only pointworthy upgrade.
Should be fine, but I reckon that i3 will be a big bottleneck.
yea^....1 part at a time though
This is an excellent unit. Same one I have.
Both your current PSU and the PSU TK recommended will run either a 270X or a 280X just fine.
And I did offer you an i5 2400 a year ago....lol Unfortunately, it sold on ebay 6 months ago....
yea, airbud should have got that chip :bang:
my 6870 is still my bottleneck/not for long though (I hope)
In that case go for the best card in your budget
