I currently have a Dell XPS 8500 Desktop that I'd like to upgrade in the graphics card department. I heard I may need a new power supply to handle the new graphics card which needs to be good enough to handle next gen games no problem.

I have a $1200 budget for this upgrade so hopefully somebody can recommend a combo that fits that. Has anybody upgraded a Dell XPS 8500 here? What all do I need?

Thanks,

- Venom

1200$ is way more than needed, from the specs on dells page it says its running a i7 and a 460w psu, if so a gtx 960/970 is your best bet.

are the specs i listed above right? if not list them

what are the other specs,
CPU, Memory?
well as long as you have a i5/i7 GTA 5 will run fine with either gtx 960 or 970,

how many amps is the 460w psu your running?
