Should I buy a GeForce GTX 980 Ti now, or wait for the new GPUs?

Question by Peter from Australia | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Nov 11, 2015 at 6:38 pm CST

Currently building a new PC. The single largest expense is the video card. Approximately when are the new NVIDIA cards emerging and will the comparable 980 ti of the new series have a substantial improvement over the current version? Am I better waiting until just before the new series release when the current series will most likely drop in price. Currently using an old AMD 7870, and wondering whether to continue using it until/if current 980 ti prices drop

Is my 750W PSU enough to handle my system, or should I upgrade?

Question by Frank from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Cases, Cooling & PSU | Apr 12, 2015 at 11:25 pm CDT

What are some good guidelines to go by when determining how much power you'll need? Is 750 watts enough for modern times or is now the time to upgrade?

Running an AMD FX 8350 eight core processor at 4GHz

16GB DDR3 2400 RAM

MSI R9 270X 2GB video card

Been thinking of upgrading the video card but I'm worried my old 750W PSU won't be able to handle it.
