How is this card? and what does superclocked mean?

Because if it is over clocked i cant use it because my PSU is not that good

It's an entry level graphics card. It will play the newest games, but you'll be turning down some of the settings to increase performance. Superclocked means it is factory overclocked.

You should still be able to use it. A 430W power supply would be enough to power a system with that card, and yours is 500w. And it needs 24amps on the +12v rail, your psu supplies enough over it's dual +12v rails.

But I say theoretically as coolermaster psu's are hit and miss. I personally wouldn't use a coolermaster PSU. I give no guarantees, but if you were to ask coolermaster, they would say it would work.

If you have the cash, pick up something more reliable, like a seasonic, xfx, corsair, antec

The difference in the normal 660 and an overclocked one for power consumption will not make much of a difference. The answer is the same, your PSU should be able to handle it.

If I was looking to go up a level from here would you recommend 660 Ti, or 760? Or something else all together.
