Hi all,

I recently bought Red Dead 2 but my 960 2gb doesn't have enough vram to play the game with anything but the very lowest texture settings. I was considering upgrading my gpu anyway, but I'm not sure if I would also need to upgrade my PSU.

My current build:
Ryzen 5 2600
ASRock B450 Fatality Gaming-ITX Mobo
16gb ram
1tb HDD + 240gb SSD
ANTEC VPF450 450W 80+ Bronze PSU
Cooler Master Elite 130 Case

I was thinking of upgrading the GPU to rx580 8gb on the cheaper end, or something more recent like a 1660 super on the more expensive end. So would I also need to upgrade my PSU?

Yes, you'd most probably need at least 550 - 650W good make and model PSU.
