Hello and welcome to OCC.

 

You'll have to be a bit more specific about your hardware before any of the members can offer you any advice. ;)

 

Motherboard, memory and power supply models etc.

Can you be a little more specific about your power supply because there's only one Ace 620W I know about and it costs about £18.00. I hope it isn't that one! :nono:;)

480 -> 5870 would be a downgrade (as much as I love the 5870). Just blow out the 480 and keep using it, there isn't much worth upgrading from that.

 

Where are ya ordering from (if online) I'll pick ya a nice PSU!

What's your budget?

 

If money's tight then the Corsair CX500W or XFX PRO550W would do the job nicely.
