About to buy a new gpu. However, DO you guys think my psu is able to support this?

Right now my parts are a asrock gaming fatal1ty k4, 16gb of ddr4 ram (2x8gb), a ryzen 1600x and my current gpu is a sapphire r7 260x.

I am planning to either get a 1060 6gb, rx 580 8gb . or a 1070.

The 1070 I plan to buy is the asus rog strix. However , It would be the first high powered gpu I would buy . compared to my small and rather low end r7 260x. My current psu is this one http://www.sentey.com/en/mbp750-hm/ . I bought it about 2 years ago, bronze rating, 750w semi modular. So far it has not given me any problems. Do you guys think that this psu can support a gtx 1070?

  1. the 260x consumes more power than the 1060 and the 1070, and a little less than a 580.
    I cannot find any real reviews on that PSU, made by sirtec and its discontinued by sentey is about it.
    the 1070 would be a load reduction compared to the 260x, 1070 should be fine.

    the tdp of my gpu is 115 W. Are you saying that an gtsx 1070 or a 1060 6gb consume less than this small gpu?

    sorry confused the 260x with the 280x.

    the 1070 will use a little more power than that little card 150W max

    r260x hit @130W at most intensive. the PSU should be able to handle that the lack of information on that unit makes me wary.
    the r260x is about the same power consumption as a 1060.
    I would not suggest the RX with that PSU.

    My psu was like popular with a bunch of specs the moment I bought it , after a year or two, it dissapeared. but so far there is little to no change in realiability. I was planning on getting a rx 580, but only on msrp. At this point a 1070 is probably what I should aim for now. I think 6gb is not enough , amybe for 1080p 60fps, but I hope to upgrade by the end of the year to a 1440p monitor with a higher refresh rate and keep my curent 1080p 60hz one as a second monitor. Thanks
