Should I upgrade my PSU if I upgrade from a GTX 670 to a GTX 970?

Question by Mirza from Bangladesh | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Cases, Cooling & PSU | Wed, Dec 9 2015 10:21 PM CST

I own a Cooler Master GX 450W psu. It has been used for nearly 2 years. It's powering my pc absolutely fine (no BDOS,etc) which has a MSI GTX 670 Power OC edition, overclocked FX-6100 @4.1GHz, MSI 990XA-GD55 mobo, two 4GB RAM sticks, two HDDs and a few fans. I am thinking about upgrading to GTX 970. So, I have two questions. Will my psu be able to handle GTX 970 since GTX 970 possibly has same power consumption as GTX 670? And will the upgrade from GTX 670 to GTX 970 even be worth it? I game at 1080p. Thanks for reading :)

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 | Wed, Nov 11 2015 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
