My PC specs are:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40GHz
RAM: 4GB (will be upgrading to 8GB at the same time)
Motherboard: GA-N650SLI-DS4L
Graphics Card: NVIDA GeForce GTX 560 (at the moment)

I'm looking at getting a Nvidia GTX 660 Ti 2GB.

So first of will my PC run that graphics card?
Also is the any difference between the ASUS brand and Gigabyte?

As far as Brand go, Each Manufacturer has their own reason why their card is better. I just usually do some research and decide, If I already dont have some form of brand loyalty.

Motherboard can support the card No problem as long as there is room in your Case.

The main problem may lie in your Power Supply. Do you happen to know the Model. And, if you dont, you can always upload a pic of the sticker on the side for us to see. Have to have enough Wattage and Amps to support the card -D

Edit- Now that I noticed, If you already have a 560, You should have no problem with the 660ti, Unless the PSU just happens to be really really really low quality....

what the wattage of your power supply. if it too low the newer gpu will shut off during gaming. most times with gpu there two types of gpus. ones that are stock cards from nvidia or amd. they just have asus or another brands name on it.
the other type is after market cards that have there own coolers and some are over clocked higher then factory. with the cards look at the ram..gpu speed and how thick the gpu is is it a two or three slot card. also look online if people have issues with no post or issues with brand x or y cards.

The power supply is a Thermaltake lightpower 600/700W

Looks good to go to me. 40-48Amps is plenty for this card.

Judging if you either have the 600W or 700W Variant
