I'm giving my current PC to my wife so we can play Diablo 3 together but that means I need to build a new one. I know Blizzard doesn't make their games very graphic intensive but I'd also like to be able to play Rift at High or even Ultra settings with 30+ FPS. I currently have:
AMD 2.2Ghz Dual Core
4GB DDR2 RAM
I run Rift on low at 20-30FPS.
I'm trying to build this PC on a budget and I have the CPU, motherboard and RAM figured out. I'm having issues though regarding the PSU and GPU. Basically I want to make sure the system isn't underpowered (in terms of wattage) and I want to make sure that I'm getting the best bang for my buck as far as GPU.
The CPU I have selected is:
The GPU's I'm trying to decide between are as follows:
GeForce GTS 450
GeForce GTX 460SE
The GPU's require 400W and 450W respectively.
So my questions are:
1.) Which GPU would be best? I'm leaning towards the 460SE. It's only $30 more and seems to be a very large upgrade over the 450. It also requires 50W more power though and $30 is still 30 bucks.
2.) Would a 650W PSU be enough to power my system?
Thanks for your time If you need any other information let me know.
