Windows 7: Wanting to upgrade

Wanting to upgrade

I thinking of upgrading my GPU from the Geforce GTX 650 to the EVGA 750 ti, but I am not sure if this upgrade will help with the FPS that I see in games. I am not totally sure what PSU I have, it is either 450 or 500 WATT, but it does not have a dedicated PCI-E power connector.

I was told that the EVGA 750 ti does not require one. So my question is would this change in GPU increase the FPS?

@ AdRam The reason is that the 900 series requires a dedicated power supply connector which my PSU does not have and budget constraints.

Well then, time to save that money for a new power supply and a new graphics card!

I am retired and I can spare enough now for a new card, but it would take about 6 months to save enough for both, plus I built this rig and I'm afraid that if I mess around with another PSU that I might not get the connections right and would end up with a high priced paper weight since I can't really afford to pay someone to install it for me.

If you are any kind of a gamer, I would not waste your money on a 750 Ti, but you do what you want, I`m sure the 750 Ti would be better then what you have.

Ans as far as a PSU goes you can`t put a connector in the wrong spot, it will not go in. And all the connections are clearly marked.

This is an excellent price on an excellent PSU.
