    You can buy 2000 watt PSUs now. However, they won't fit in most cases due to the size.

    1000+ watt PSUs seem to be very popular with Litecoin miners at the moment. Some people are even joining multiple PSUs together since it can be a bit cheaper than a single 1500 watt PSU.

    A 550W PSU should easily cope with your PC and a 760, or most mid/high end cards (though the GTX 780Ti/Titan/R9 290X or a dual GPU card will probably be too much!)

    Its a cheap one, not a branded one. Got it from maplins for £30. Dont really hold out much hope for it.

    Purchasing will probably go like this (long term)

    SSD (Feb)
    PSU (Mar)
    GFX (Apr)

    Unless something happens in the mean time and I get a nice wedge of cash!

    Right then, Now @nephilim is sorted how about me?

    I've got a GTX260 which is lovely, but i've got a wee bit of cash spare, I've got ssds, decent psu, plenty of ram. Got slightly less than a hundred quid and want something nVidia, what is there that's going to be a fair bit better than my existing card? I was looking for a GTX 570, but I'm open to options.

    Looking on amazon ( prices may differ between places ) but either GTX 650 or possibly 660 if you can afford about an additional £30 or so ??

    Money is super tight hence me having to squeeze, I'll likely be happy to use ebay for this as I'll get a slightly better deal. I know there's a little more risk but I've been running hand me down cards for ten years now
