I am thinking about an i5 processor for my next upgrade (and PSU)

This is my current build and I was looking at i5's and it seems everyone get's the Intel Core i5-4690K would it be worth it for my rig?

Also I am thinking about getting a better power supply the one I have now is really cheap and hum's (Pcpartpicker doesn't have my current PSU anymore but this one has the same wattage and manufacturer).

The i5-4690k would be a great upgrade for your rig.. What is your budget for a PSU?

The evga GQ 650 would be a great choice.. 450 is too close and if you have a bad psu then this would only make things worst.

Alright; sweet, then I will get that i5.

That is a very reasonable price for a PSU by my standards and yeah 450 watts is cutting it close

Thanks
