I'm slowly upgrading the components on my first build. I've upgraded the mobo, fans, cpu cooling, case, etc.
Now I'm on to the PSU. I just purchased an HX850i after reading wonders about the HXi series. I got 850 instead of 750 not because I needed it, but because the price difference was about $20-$30 and I found that to be worth the extra headroom. Was the PSU upgrade a good one?
I use this build mainly for gaming if not solely for that. I game happily in 1080p so I havent had an excuse to upgrade my 770, it's run everything I thrown at it at 60+ FPS on high to highest settings with at least AA 2x on (BF4, Shadow of Mordor, NBA 2K15, Sleeping Dogs). Once I upgrade all of the other components, I will move on to a new monitor/GPU, but hopefully that'll be a year or two down the line.
I digress! Do you guys agree with my PSU upgrade?
