Hi, I am using a rig of
AMD PHENOM II X6 1090t
4+4GB 1600M twinmos Ram
500GB Samsung + 1TB WD HDD
19" LG LED
and
Tharmalteck 450w Lite Power.

I want to buy a GPU [have Radeon HD 6670]..

Gtx 650, 650 ti and R7 260x are my primary option.

Can I run 650ti/ R7 260x with my Litepower 450w?
btw. it says r7260 recommends 500w psu

You power supply got some good reviews and does put out a solid 450w, actually holding up well at 550w. It'll be plenty.

Personally I'd prefer a 750 or 750ti, but I've seen some really great prices on the 260x lately($100-$110ish) so I'd have to say go with the 260x.

Your power supply will work fine with an r7 260x, in fact it would be fine with a GTX660 or r9 270x. Anything above that and you would need to replace it with a bigger one.

[i played SRIV with total high specs]

now... which thermal paste is good for AMD PHONOM II -1066t ?
the problem was happening while i was having my GiGabyte Radeon HD 6670..
at first 3-5 mins every games runs fine...
but after that Fps drops to 0 and it keeps doing several times...
so i found that its the temperature rise.... [pc wizard shows 61 Celsius]
i went with HC 151 thermal solution.. it was cool first 20 mins then again...
so...

should i apply a different solution?

or how about Thermaltake Contac 39/CPU Cooler/2*120mm Fan/Cu & AL?
i am currently running on low budget...
please suggest [i have 4000 Bdt [~50USD] now at my hand]..
My Motherboard is GigabYte MA78LMT-s

61C isn't that hot if that's what its getting to in the middle of a game. If its running that at idle or not in a game then that might be the problem.

This is probably the most popular cooler out right now and for good reason, it works excellent, it's quiet, it fits everything, and it's reasonably priced. I bought it off of reviews of it and it works great. You should be able to find it just about anywhere.

I wouldn't use the cheap chinese thermal paste. If you get a cooler use what's already on it. I not any of these are good.

This is what I used to always use for thermal paste, but they've raised the prices on it by almost double.

If you can find one of these somewhere they're good also.
