Hey guys!

My specifications are in my profile if you need to take a look, but for time-saving i'll post them here too. Anyway, my systems been having frame-rate drops with various games, mainly real new ones such as Skyrim and BF3, overall my system should be able to play these games fine, and the only real problem I can see is the PSU, as it's a bog-standard 650W cheap-*** replacement I bought waaaay before upgrading.

Anyway, even if that's not the issue for my frame-rate drops, i'm gonna upgrade the PSU regardless, as this ones too god-damn noisy. So really I'm here just to get your recommendations, I don't really want to spend over £60 on a new PSU, and have already looked at a few, I was thinking with the 600 - 650W OCZ PSU's, the ZS series or the ModXStream, however I don't know which one is a higher standard or better for gaming, so if anyone want's to help me out or throw me another idea, then feel free, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you! :)

Specs:

AMD X4 955 Black Edition Processor
8GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
ASRock N68C-S UCC Motherboard
NVIDIA GTX 560ti Graphics Card
Standard 650W PSU.
2 Hard-drives. Both SATA II, 250GB & 500GB

Honestly, a 700 watt ModX series would be the best option, you need a little more breathing room for that video card, and the 700's are a good quality anyways.

And in comparision to OCZ's other series's? Such as ZS, ZT and ZX? Is it worse, better or how does it work in this area? :confused:

They are all about the same, the Gamexstreme and modxtreme series are just made more for gamers and system builders. I prefer them over other series.
