  1. System memory and dedicated system memory is completely separate.

    If the rest of your system is good enough then its fine.

    What are the rest of your specs?

    ESPECIALLY your power supply?
  2. Processor:
    AMD Athlon II -250 X2 3.0 GHz

    Motherboard AMD:
    Biostar; NF520D3, AM3, nForce520;

    RAM:
    Transcend; DDR3 4GB 1333MHz;

    Graphics card:
    eVGA; GeForce GT430 ; 1024MB; DDR3;

    Hard disk:
    Seagate; 1TB; 16MB L2 Cache ; 7200rpm

    DVD Drive:
    DVD-RW SATA Dual Layer

    Case:
    Blueberry; MidiTower; 520W;

    Power Supply:

    Blueberry; PSB520 ; 520 W;
  3. But I wan't to replace the power supply with this: Corsair GS600 600W

    I know that 520W isn't enough :D

    yeah the GS600 is a good choice. Then you are a for away. :)

    Keep in mind your CPU will bottleneck the GTX660 a little.

    Is it going to make crashes or is it going to overclock or burn out or something like that?
  6. Nope nothing like that, you will just miss out on some of the full performance potential of the GTX660.
