Hey everyone, if the gtx 660 works on my computer, will the 670?

I did a lot of research a year back and established my computer would run the gtx 660 card, is it fair to assume that the 670 would run as well?

Here are links to both the cards, (im really not sure what i am supposed to be looking for when it comes to a computer being able to run a card)

If your computer has a PCI-E slot ( And it does if a GTX 660 works ) you can run any card from an old 6800GT to a GTX 780 Ti. If and only if your power supply can handle the card. So the important question is what is the make and model of your PSU?

witch a video card you need two things. the right video card slot and a power supply that has the wattage to be able to power the card.
(older pc had agp video slots and the newer video cards wont work).
the 660/670 are the same slots just the wattage is more on the 670.
the 760 is the replacment for the 670. there also the amd 280x that just as fast but a little cheaper then then nvidia line.

...you have a power supply with 2-star reviews that costs less than 10% of its "wattage."

You don't have a power supply, you have a cheap bomb that could very easily fry your graphics card or motherboard if you stress it.

Yeah that is a power supply shaped object I would not trust to charge a battery. Complete trash.

See the tier list here: A little hint, start at tier 5.

Replace that thing before it dies and takes the rest of you system with it. And never, never go cheap with the power supply. It's literally the single most important part of your computer.

A system with a single GTX 670 needs a quality 500w power supply.

500 watts for a GTX 670. Check the list I posted above. It's reliable and can be trusted.

Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec or the higher efficiency Rosewill units for quality.
