    Upgrade your graphics card and maybe your psu as 300W is quite low for gaming

    my dad works for nintendo.
    this one right here, what power supply is that 300 watts btw?

    i would first try to upgrade teh gpu, otherwise you will end up replacing the whole thing

    lol, for a 1500 watts? if he computer ain't shutting down it's good...
    300 watts may be enough for him, however i would suggest to get something like a good brand 650-750 watts power supply that will last forever, it's worth it

    1060 would be good. I have a 960 and I can still run all my games 1080p on ultra.

    Go with a 1070, it's only a bit more expensive and it will last you longer.

    If you want to be future proof, go for a good brand 650W PSU, that should be enough to handle any future setup besides maybe dual GPUs in SLI/CrossFire.
    I have a 750W in my desktop, which I didn't realize at the time is a bit overkill. But a 650W should be enough to handle an i7 7700K and GTX 1080 Ti OC'd with room left to spare for more HDDs and such. So you don't have to buy a new PSU for your next build if you don't want to :P
    Anyway when you eventually build a new PC, you might want to keep the old one as a backup/for LAN/as a media server or sell it off, in which case you might want to buy a new PSU for the new rig anyway. Up to you I guess.
    For your current build you don't need anywhere near 650W. I just like to be prepared for anything.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you can check it by looking at it
    there is no way for the computer to know which one is, but seeming it as 300 watts, probably a cheap ass "it works" one, probably included in the case or prebuilt pc
    get a evga or a corsair power suply, 600-750 watts, these should last forever, if you want efficiency and save in the electricity bill get a 80plus gold or better
