Hello, I was wondering about my computer, which only has 92w of power. The total power of my GeForce GTX 1050 ( 75w ) and my Intel i3-3240 ( 55w ) is 130w. I haven't experienced any major performance issues or errors. I use my Computer for general use such as shopping and internet browsing + light and medium gaming
Currently I am looking for a new processor and want to upgrade to an Intel i5-3570k which would increase my total wattage to 152w!
If it makes any difference I have 8gb RAM.
All I want to know is if it will make an impact or if I should upgrade to a higher wattage power supply. If so any suggestions for a good budget power supply?
Thanks - Brad
