So i recently got a new desktop, and I am looking to upgrade my graphics card to the gtx 760, the only problem is I'm not sure if my computer has the power supply or the cooling capabilities and if it would void the warranty to upgrade the power supply. My dekstop here

Summarized specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 CPU 3.4GHz
OS: Windows 8
RAM: 8G
HARD-DRIVE: 1TB
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 645 (1g dedicated ram.)
Powersupply: 460 watt (unsure of brand)
Cooling: unsure most likely a fan

(Some might be unnecessary information, but the more the better :) 

Desired gtx 760
The recommended power is 500w, is it necessary to upgrade the power supply, as 460w seems quite close.

Will provide any extra information needed upon request.
Thanks!

yah you definitely have to upgrade. and you always wanna go with a little more then they recommend. because they cant factor in everything else that might be in your pc. 650 watt power supply bro. always go with a corsair psu.

Thanks for the reply! I was expecting to have to upgrade, but I was very wary, because I have never changed anything in my pc before, or do I even know if the upgrades will fit in my case, anyway thanks again!
