  21. Adam Krause says

    Don't need the new PSU
    use sata to pcie
    * 1 from each rail
    into a combiner to single pcie for gpu
    =done many times (stock Dell PSU)
    ==no issues (gtx1660 in Opti 9020, gtx1060 in Opti 3020, gtx770 in Opti 390, rx570 in Opti 3010, etc)
    Only other components; CDVDRW(rail a), SSD, HDD(rail b)

    During the lockdown i tried to upgrade it now this is the specs:
    Same proc, win10, 10gb ram, 120gb ssd + 500gb hdd and amd r9 270x 2gb.

    Now im saving for a new psu and hopefully a new processor by the end of the year. Wish me luck!

  31. Chris S says

    i7 2600, RX 560, 16gb ram, and a 110gb SSD took a free office PC to a capable gaming PC. Plays what I want it to without any problems and was $110 in parts to add on to what was there. Luckily it had a 750 and 500gb 7200 HDD's already in it.
