Completely new build, or just upgrade?

Recommended Posts

I love my mushkin enhanced ssd. Been running a 120 for the last year and a half and just upgraded the wife's to a 480 chromos and now I'm getting one.

 

Go nvidia. Can't go wrong with nvidia.

Alright, I decided to buy two GTX 970 windforces off a guy for $500 including the sli bridge. It sounds like a good deal considering the 970's go for over $300 new.

 

Anyways, I have two questions:

 

1) Will my Corsair TX850w power supply I have had from like 2010 be okay to run the cards? I'm not sure how much efficiency/wattage the power supply loses over time. I want to say it was bronze rated?

 

2) My Asus Sabertooth P67 MB is PCI-e 2.0x16 single and dual running at x8 x8 (I believe). Will this bottle neck the cards with my current build?

 

Thanks guys

1) You should have no problems!

Exactly. 

 

My Kid has basically the exact same setup and runs a pair of GTX 580's with no issues what so ever.
