Hi, I'm looking for an nvidia graphics card that has the same power as a Radeon 7950 that will work with this motherboard ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Motherboard-4th-Genera... ) , this processor ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Graphics-BX80646I74770-Ge... ) and fit in this case ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/NZXT-Phantom-USB-Tower-Chassis/... )

I know that all the parts are compatible if I was using a Radeon 7950 but I'm looking for an Nvidia card that is just as good a a Radeon 7950.

Make sure the power supply is up to snuff.

A 660 ti/670/760 are around the power of a 7950.Just be sure you have a beefy powersupply.

Thanks a lot. After looking at prices, I have decided to just go for the Radeon 7950 instead. Would you say a Corsair 650w would be enough?

Well your powersupply cant cause you to lag in games,I don't know where you heard that but its wrong.What a low quality power supply can do is burn out at lower than its rated power and cause massive damage in some cases burn out your entire system as well as deliver unsafe voltages to your parts.What 7950 are you going to be getting I need to know that to recommend a powersupply because the corsair only has 2 6pin pci connectors.

You will need to find a 700-750w power supply with 2 8 pin pci-e connectors.I suggest a seasonic power supplys they are regarded as being the best on the market.That being said they are not cheap.But you will need a good power supply because the 7950 draws quite a bit of power and you don't want the power supplies rail/rails to run out of amps and leave the rest of your system getting inadequate power,shutting right off,or is worse case blowing a capacitor.The high end spectrum of power supplys usually have fail safes in them that will shut them off before they overdraw to much current.Also being added you have a k series processor,your going to want alot of extra juice if your overclocking.Its better to overshoot than undershoot it by even a small amount with power supplys,they power your system if they go your system very well has a chance at going with it.
