Eeeeh What's up. Doc!?
Hi Guys

I have three questions :)

I have a Dell IN2020 Monitor and the native resolution is 1600x900. Recently I hooked up it with my new CPU which has a GTX 750 Ti GPU using the VGA-DVI adapter to the DVI port of the GPU. The Machine is running windows 10. As the CPU assembling and OS installation was done by my friend I just had to hook it up to my monitor. But the resolution (Native) is showing 1024x768 and the display is shown as GNP-Generic Monitor. I can change the resolution to 1600X900 though. I just want to know if this is normal or have I missed any driver ? The Nvidia Driver is Installed.

Secondly, is it good to connect the monitor to the motherboard to enable optimus Tech thing ? incase it conserve watts I would like to utilize that

Thirdly for my Current setup the PSU is the Generic 460W Gigabyte branded which was with the case, is that fine for now or should I change it ASAP ? The GPU is a Gigabyte Twin force So it needs a pin.

Hi [MENTION=127200]zacfx05[/MENTION],

For basic Intel configuration; there is no need for High wattage PSU. For ease of mind and future proof rig, I would suggest you to go with the high wattage PSU like 500W. With that in future, you can upgrade the other peripheral components like SSD, HDD and GPU.

For GPU, it might be a drivers issue. As of now some of the drivers of old Windows may not work properly on latest Windows. I'd suggest you install the latest version of drivers in your system.

Hope it helps
 
the resolution problem is related to the GPU and Windows 10. Update your GPU drivers.

Always connect your monitor to your GPU . What do you mean my Optimus Thing? Optimus is a mobile GPU feature. I have a GTX 750ti and i dont have any Optimus feature.

Your GPU is not very demanding. No need to upgrade your PSU. Upgrade your PSU when u plan to buy a faster graphic card in the future.

Thanks Guys the Resolution part if fine.. I have a new issue actually the powers supply I used was Old running absolutely fine. But I got a Gigabyte Windforce 770 4GB GPU. Now the PSU Only have 2x6pin and 2x4pin and the GPU require 1x6pin and 1x8pin.

My question is can I connect two 6pin and leave the last two pins.. I m not intending to Overclock. Do have a look on my PSU ratings I have uploaded below.

Hi [MENTION=127200]zacfx05[/MENTION],

Based on my knowledge, each pin of circuit is important. We never know pin is Grounded or Vcc, if any pin is skipped in circuit; then there are maximum chances of short circuit in the device.

As a techie, I'd suggest you to use a 6 to 8 pin adapter cable to port.

Actually I have one Corsair VS 550w.. is this good ?

Hi [MENTION=127200]zacfx05[/MENTION],

In my opinion, for basic PC configuration; there is no need for High wattage PSU. For ease of mind and future proof rig, I would suggest you to go with the normal wattage PSU like 550W. With that in future, you can upgrade the other peripheral components like SSD, HDD and GPU.

If you have the spare PSU then go ahead to upgrade your build.
