I have a Asus CG-5290 and I was wondering if I have enough room to replace my current graphics card (GTX260) with a EVGA GTX650Ti Boost card.

Before you do, make sure you have the needed PCI-E power connectors for the new card available, then shut down, unplug, remove the old card and install the new one, plug in it's power, plug in the rig and start it up - go to the GPUs site and download the latest Drivers (if newer than what you already have) and tuning software for your new GPU and your ready to go

How do I find out if I have the correct PCI-E power connectors? Is there a site I can go to to view that?

The 650TI Boost requires a 6 PIN PCI-E Connector from the PSU

I like SeaSonic, Corsair and RaidMax are reasonable, I'd look for a 500 w/ 24 min on the 12 volt rail

Does my case have enough space for a power supply unit of that size?
