Is the Gtx 660ti going to be able to work on my computer?
I've got an advent dt2111 which has the Foxconn motherboard (i5 2320 3ghz CPU and with pci-e 2.0 I think), 8gb ram, amdhd6670 2gb gddr3, it has a 400 watt power supply. I know I would need a new power supply (500w I think, anyone recommend any brand?) and was thinking of geTting the asus gtx 660 ti from amazon uk. I think the card will fit in my case ( if the dimensions are 27x13x1.7) but it won't have a lot of surrounding space and the fans would be facing the bottom of the case, there are no additional fans in the pc so will cooling be a issue (which is why I think asus' card will be best)?
There is the pny card for £205, the asus one for £228 and other brands at various prices and features: which is the best one for me to go for?
I'd like to play games like bf3. How well would crisis 2/3 run on it? Arms 3? with high fps and looking to get future games like Rome total war, company of heroes 2, maybe ac4? how well is the 660ti likely to withstand future games like bf4,gta v? Should I be looking at the amd cards instead?
I've tried to give you as much information as possible and Any help would be greatly appreciated and much welcomed. i have learnt my lesson from buying computers from superstores and know for next time that custom building is the way forward.
Also my Graphics card ATM (amd hd6670) has broken) I think I may have touched it whilst looking in the case to see larger cards could fit, is there anyway I can fix it? I can return it to get it fixed while its in warranty but that will take 2-4 weeks, It'd just get a spare graphics card if I do upgrade and could possibly sell it or should I just upgrade the card?

Yes you can go for the Ti aswell but the cpu will hold you back sometimes in some games, but yes Ti is OK
EVGA ASUS any will do but if cooling is a issue I recommend get something with dual fan cooler.

they go neck to neck but 7870 is better on higher resolution like 1080p
Glad to be helpful. :)

How easy would it be for me to change the graphics card AND power supply? the gpu looks easy enough but i'd have to be extra careful when handling seeing as though (i assume) i broke my current card, but how about the power supply?
or is it best to just take it to Pc world (where i brought it from) and ask them to change it even if it meant paying extra?

If your not confident/familiar its best to take it any pc shop to do it for you. Any Local cheap pc shops should be able to do it cheaper.
