(HELP) Will Nvidia GTX 660 work on my PC?

I want to buy an Nvidia GTX 660 graphic card but I don't know if it will work on my PC.

I have a PCI-E 2.0
And on my power supply says 'Max Wattage 450W and Peak Wattage 500W'

Will it work?

  1. It would work.

    But you would probably need to upgrade your PSU. I'd say 550W, but it also

    depends on what other parts you've got. You don't want your PSU running close to

    max, even if it could handle it.
  2. Yes it will work, but what are your system specs? And what PSU do you have?
  3. My system specs are
    GeForce 405
    Intel Core I5 CPU 650 @ 3.20Ghz
    4gb
    Windows 8

    My psu model number is FSP450-60EP
  4. I think your CPU is fine then.

    But getting a new PSU would be a good idea most likely.
  5. But if i take the 650 ti boost changes something?
  6. The boost is essentially a 660.

    I'd feel safer with a 550W PSU still.
  7. Well then I think I'll get a new psu...any advice on what model of Psu should i get?
    I'd prefer a 600W
  8. Corsair, OCZ, XFX are some good ones.
  9. Thank you very much.
    Another question which 660 you advice me to get?

    I'm thinking one of this 3
    Gainward nVidia GeForce GTX 660 Core 980/1033MHz Memory GDDR5 3004MHz 2GB DVI HDMI DP
    Zotac ZT-60901-10M nVidia GeForce GTX 660 Core 993/1059MHz Memory GDDR5 6008MHz 2GB DVI HDMI DP
    Gigabyte nvidia GeForce GTX 660 OC Core 1033/1098MHz Memory GDDR5 6008MHz 2GB DVI HDMI DP

    which one is better?
  10. Best answer
    You could get a Radeon 7850 by the way. Tends to be cheaper, while still being on-par with

    a 660. An MSI Twin Frozr version is always awesome for GPUs in my view. Of the 660s you put

    forth, I imagine you'd like the Gigabyte one in particular, if you're not going to OC things yourself.

    But I don't know really. I think they're much the same, those 3, so I doubt you'd feel a difference.
