Thanks guys. I'm not really looking to upgrade the PSU atm because I have no clue how I would being to rebuild my PC haha. I can pretty much replace ram and a video card, other than that I'm useless.

That is of course your choice but the reality is since your current PSU is modular should you decide to pick up the modular version of the Rosewill Capstone you could literally unplug the current cables and just reattach the new cables without needing to have the new PSU installed.  Once all cables are reattached you could remove the old PSU from the case and replace it with the new PSU and just route the cables to it.  Extremely easy process.

Don't worry about us geeks ranting.

Basically you are fine and a vid card upgrade will definately be noticeable. Good luck :)

I have a 250gb Corsair SSD, and I had a 1tb HDD which was buggy the day I got it. I'm thinking of buying another one, if you guys have any suggestions for a 1-2 tb HDD that has good reviews.

If you're leaving things at stock speeds, the power supply will be fine with any single GPU card you want--including Titan, or even a GTX 480, which is actually much worse than Titan about heat and power use.  If you want to give the processor a moderate overclock while leaving the video card at stock speeds, the power supply would be able to handle any modern single GPU card.  It's only if you want multiple GPUs, want to overclock the video card, or want to go for an unreasonably large overclock of the CPU that the power supply would be problematic.

For what it's worth, the power supply is a rebranded Seasonic M12II, which is, itself, the modular version of a Seasonic S12II.  While hardly high end, it's a decent quality power supply, and I wouldn't worry much about if upgrading to a system that could conceivably peak around 500 W under an artificial stress test.

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. Overclocking is no good for longevity, correct?

AMD is due to reveal their 9000 series cards very soon. You'd do well to wait until some of the cards have been released to see the performance and to see NVidia's reaction.

Overclocking shouldn't reduce the life of your components at all as long as you have sufficient cooling. If you're using stock coolers on your CPU, don't overclock.

GPU has to be msi-x compliant s o all the rest of your computer .this mean everything has to be pci3 .the pcie3 network card the GPU the CPU etc.if you naught proper gear?window 8 will detect automatically and enable msi-x.might need to ask gov maraj(channel 9 weekly show )q&a .he ll consult and suggest witch maker will make everything.I suspect Intel might be the only one but I ainst sure .

I would not say the 770 kicks the 670s ass... it is slightly better yes but nothing amazing..
 but the 770 is prob the best mid range card on the market at the moment.. but if you dont have the cash for that then stepping back to the 670 wont be a bad option..

Current power supply is fine

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Antec/HCG-620M/10.html

It could handle mild overclocks (anything you can get without tweaking on voltage), even with the additional power draw of a 770GTX. If you started pushing voltage on it, you may want something bigger.

Replacing the power supply is a matter of the 4 screws holding it in, and unplugging the old power cords, and plugging the new ones back in.

Easy technically, the only hard part is getting all the damn cables to look pretty and stay out of the way (lots of zipties)

$1000 Or so. I mean I would've bought the Titan but apparently it's just not worth it for it's price atm.

Thanks, will the PSU make a difference in performance anyways?

 

I always thought of a PSU as an annoying thing you need to change when upgrading to better parts.

Will a PSU give you better fps? decrease load times? or generally speed up a system? NO

But it is what powers the entire computer. Without sufficient power the computer itself will not run, or will run poorly with many errors until it finally wont anymore. At which point you may have damaged other components.

Buying a good PSU is a wise decision overall.

The GTX 770 is basically a GTX 680 clocked higher.  They're both the same chip as a GTX 670, but the GTX 670 disables part of the chip, while the GTX 770 and 680 keep the whole thing functional.  And just to confuse you, they're also the same chip as a GTX 660 Ti, GTX 760, and some versions of a GTX 660.  And that's just the desktop parts; in laptops, the chip has a bunch of entirely different names yet.

Outside of some weird cases where you have a really bad power supply causing other parts to overheat, the power supply will never affect benchmark scores.  Rather, the power supply is the difference between "computer works properly", "computer sometimes crashes on you", and "computer is completely dead".  Higher quality power supplies mean that you're more likely to get "works properly" and less likely to get the others, but there are diminishing returns.  The difference between a 70% chance that a power supply will fry things and a 10% chance is enormously important.  The difference between a 10% chance of frying things and 2% also matters.  But how much is the difference between 2% and 1% worth?  And you can never have a 100% chance that everything works quite right.
