I've been mulling over upgrading my build for quite sometime. I have a fairly old (2012) Rosewill Platinum 750 watt PSU.
In the past I've done some reading but I didn't retain the knowledge, so before I dive back into it I figured I'd come to the pros from some suggestions on whats important/ the ramifications of not upgrading. What should I be on the look out for in terms of power, features, and brands currently?
- I haven't abused the PSU much, never really ran it close to load.
- Its not modular unfortunately - I know this is something people appreciate while building, and if I could do it over I would have gone for modular.
- I'm not committed to any ideas but I'll likely be running a rx480 and a Ryzen 7 2700x cpu. GPU will be upgraded in the not to distant future so headroom on the PSU capacity is something I know to keep in mind.
