    Default MS-Tech ms-n750 + FX6300 + GTX 1060

    Hi everyone,

    My friend wants to upgrade his Radeon 7950 to a GTX 1060. His CPU is the AMD FX-6300 and his PSU is an ms tech ms-n750 (which is not very good, according to what I've been able to find so far).

    Do you think it would be risky to run a GTX 1060 on this PSU or something? I'd also like to add that he would really not like having to spend money on a PSU right now..

    Also, what about an RX 580 instead of a GTX 1060? The Radeon is more power-hungry, that's why I'm curious..

    Everything is risky with that PSU.

    MS-Tech PSU are crappy. They can kill your PC any time. If the hardware is old the damage is much smaller than with modern components though.

    That's not a meaningful upgrade. The performance uplift will be minimal in most games. On the other hand, your cpu will be the bottleneck if you get a faster card.

    I would suggest your friend to leave his pc as it is , until he can buy a new one.

    The GTX 1060 and RX 580 are like 100% faster.

    Well it's better to not use the PC at all with a PSU like that.

    Yeah, sorry my mistake, i had in mind the radeon 290x and i thought it was a rebrand of 7970 , but it is the r9 280x that is the rebranded one.

    With FX-6300 it still might not be meaningful, even if new card is a lot faster on paper.
