650 W is a lot for consumer use. I don't see any real need to get more wattage than that. Bloodaxes seems to be thinking more along the lines of, an eight year old power supply has a lot of wear on it, and it might be time to replace it on general principle before something goes haywire. That's probably a good idea if you're planning on keeping the computer a lot longer.Phry said:Personally i would ditch the 4gb ram sticks in favour of the 8gb ones, and regarding the PSU, i would consider getting a more powerful one, on the off chance that you upgrade at some point and need the extra 'capacity' and here i am thinking of future GPU upgrades.Bloodaxes said:My current PSU is: Corsair TX 650 W
Like I said, it's 8+ years old tough. That's what worries me.
As for the SSD I won't go higher than 240 GB. I'm fine with having steam games on a regular HDD and some particular games on the SSD. There's been very few games (MMOs) lately that have released anyway. I will consider ditching the current HDD for a 2TB one tough.
As for the ram, would you prefer adding 2 more 4GB cards or swap them for two 8 GB ones? Like I previously said, I've read plenty of topics on how adding more ram to existing ones could have some complications. It's true, the majority of the games still don't require 16 GB, but some do. I tend to play some of those games with friends.
So, regarding the PSU.... change it? yay or nay?
Thanks for the help
