You're right about the GPU.
The missing detail is the Power Supply. If it's stock see if the Nvidia 950 fits. You can see the uptick by using GPUBOSS.com
I don't know
I don't know what my psu is. Sorry
The PSU detail is on the PSU.
300 watt psu
Opened it up and it says a 300 watt psu
The other details are needed.
The sticker tells me if the +12V rail is split or single. I can't use Watts alone.
I see a dual rail +12V (a and b)
The a rail is 12 Amperes and the b rail is 16A.
Since I can't fine the old GPU power after a few searches I'm going to use it's TDP of 64 Watts and call it 6 Amperes on the +12V rail (which I can't tell as its split.)
So if we keep the same PSU http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-950-xtreme-gaming,4365-4.html let's use the predicted 950 maximum power (which varies with model.) The max was 135 Watts or 11 and change Amperes. This is far too close to that rail A's rating.
If you don't change the PSU you'll stick with the 750. Why?
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-750-ti-review,3750-21.html finds the 750 turning in the just under 70 Watts which is the same as the prior card.
HOWEVER the bump in performance may be too small to justify this move.
Compare your old and new GPU at GPUBOSS.com

I'm willing the change the psu
Im willing to put a bit more into my computer to get a better performance. I'd like to know what you would recommend to do. I'd like to be able to play black desert with decent fps that doesn't require me to completely crap on the graphics I'm more than willing to turn them down. I just hate that right now i have to turn it to very low and everything looks terrible.
The 300W would have worked IMO
If the +12V was a single rail but it was not so we're stuck. You can see the bump up from the 740, 750 and to the 950 at GPUBOSS so you can see what's what.
So the PSU looks standard, just shop for some 400 or higher but watch out for split rails.
Same Person different account
I login using facebook but my work blocks it so I just made a new account to ask. If you were going to recommend PSU and GPU upgrade to have better performace and play BDO what would you say is my best bet money not being an issue just so I can see my options
Thank you so much for answering all my stupid questions you have been super helpful!!
I promise last thing
That's the model we are looking for.
Is it better to buy the EVGA version
One last question
Which model should I be going for?
If you can swing it and the PSU is up to it
My nod is to the 950 2GB DDR5 model. You can see why at gpuboss.com
If you are truly stuck, shop the 750's
MY PSU would work with this card?
Sorry as the title asks this would work with my PSU? I apologize I'm extremely new to this
What do you mean by model?
Is there a problem with the card I linked to?
no it just shows up with 3 options of card the ti sc and something else so i was wondering if one > other and which one to use
