Its like 7 years old.. Model number is ocz700sxs2 and I am thinking about replacing that one as well with Corsair RM750X

It is getting rather dated and might be good to replace it. However, it is technically sufficient for the config you described. The Corsair you mentioned is okay as well.

What is your replacement PSU budget? There may be better options for you.

I dont really care.. I just need a new GPU because the last time I played Steel Division Normandy 44 my PC shut downed completely but before that my GPU almost burned down.. So GPU and PSU replacement seems valid
