Hello,
I recently started in the PC realm of gaming and have become hooked...I made my first upgrade on my own comfortably and wanted to do more so I am now wanting to upgrade my GPU. After some studying I think I need some help and getting a few questions answered...Please excuse the noobness of the questions. I will start with a list of what I currently have and hopefully it will help with the input I receive...


Intel Core i7-3820 3.6GHz

16GB DDR3 1600
GSkill Sniper 4x4GB

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (OEM) 1.5GB

625W Power Supply

Windows 8.1

2 x PCIE x1
2 x PCIE x16

MOBO- Intel X79 Chipset


I really want to get a 780ti GPU but my questions are...

Can my gear work with it?
Will my power supply be sufficient?
Will the current power supply connectors just plug rite in?
Bottlenecking? (Which I don't really understand yet)
If yes to these....which 780ti do I go with? I like the EVGA choices so far.

Thanks in advance for any help.
 

Hello man

Yes a 780TI would work fine, a bottleneck occurs when the CPU is absolute CRAP and cannot keep up with the GPU. EVGA is good, so are the MSI TWIN FROZR coolers. A 780TI is 100% sufficient for today's gaming.
