:welcome:   abhi47,


Best to be straight to the point, I would not recommend using the present PSU with any upgrade let alone an add on video card that costs over $200, it is old, not even 80%+ efficiency let alone bronze rated + even when new it may not even put out the 27 amps on the +12V rail that the GTX 960 requires.


NB: Can I ask that you do not include links to other tech support forums in your posts, thank you.
