the 970 is obsolete



try to get a rx 470, rx 480, or gtx 1060 6gb

you already have what you need,cx500 v2 is not a top tier psu

but it will do the job until you can replace it

Is there a site/software for me to check how many watts I need to check this?

You helped me a lot, I'm thinking of getting a gtx1060 6gb now. Do you think it's the best option of those you quote?

look at the minimum psu wattage

500w is more than enough



you can also go to pcpartpicker, and enter your specs


it gives a wattage estimate
