I'm asking how does this gaming PC compare to other ones on the market.


Windows 8.1

Intel Core i7-4770 Quad-core 3.40GHz

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745



It only has a 500w PSU so would it be advisable to swap it with 650w one.

I would go with an Modular Power Supply 850W or higher for Gaming PC's.

Have fun and enjoy!!

500w for that setup will be fine as long as

1 it's a good psu

2 u don't over clock

3 u don't upgrade

That being said I'd replace it asap with a good psu iv never seen a rig with a brand name have a 1/2 decent psu and almost every rig Iv seen fry was from a junk psu I even had one literally set on fire

Honestly I would recommend at least a GTX750Ti even if you have to say drop back on the CPU. Imo the I5-4690k is a awesome bang for buck CPU and the Devils Canyon CPUs have better power consumption and more importantly cooling. If you are going to over clock any the 4690 really comes alive and most OC very well and really takes advantage of the better cooling. The same goes for the 750Ti it is a very cool running (even with stock heat sinks) low power consumption (reference models don't even need any additional power aside from that provided by the PCIx slot) and also are great OC'ing cards. The lower power consumption will give you even more latitude with your PSU choice. You would be perfectly fine with a good quality 500 or so watt PSU, stability is more important than capacity for 98% of use cases. I also suggest setting aside a little extra cash for a 120gb boot SSD and you'll never look back.

My main rig:
EVGA Z97 FTW mobo,
i5 4690k @ 4.6ghz cooled by Corsair H110i 2x120mm all in one water cooler,
EVGA Superclocked 750Ti,
Intel 730 512gb and 530 240gb SSDs for OS and my most played games,
G. skill 2x8gb pc2800 DDR3,
Corsair 650w PSU

I've been extremely happy with its gaming performance for example running Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain maxed @ 1080p at an Avg. of around 50fps.

I'd recommend getting a better video card. You can see rankings for all the different ones HERE. I personally have a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, which is a great price-to-performance deal. Like BigDave-AR said, you could cut back a bit on the CPU and get an i5 or something.
