Your 2200g and GTX970 shouldn't be a bottleneck in most cases.Its a Apevia 500watt psu, never heard of the brand, but it was a cheap psu
Alright, thanks, i had a different Thermaltake smart psu that would work off amazon, but was hoping this would work, thanks!Your 2200g and GTX970 shouldn't be a bottleneck in most cases.
You don't want to hear the words "cheap" and "PSU" In the same sentence. The PSU is the backbone of your PC, and Apevia is a cheap brand. What is the exact model of this PSU?
A PSU upgrade is most likely needed before upgrading to a GTX 970.
Its 500watts, should i go for a 600watt just to be safe? And i understand its not very good quality, im just trying to build an ok pc that will play the games i want to playWhat is the exact wattage of Thermaltake Smart?
They are at least 80+ and should have the required connectors, depending on wattage.
I will reiterate, Thermaltake Smarts are bad quality aswell.
Alright thanks, ill choose a better psu that is 500watts, thank you so much for your help
This unit is better than any Thermaltake Smart. Even though the wattage is pretty low, it should work ok,With that cpu and gpu, it won't even use more than 350w at full load.
I'd recommend this unit at the bare minimum, and just about anything else cheaper than this will be junk:
